Wow! I'm going to show this to Neo. Nice work.


How much did that fender end up costing?

Looks great!

I always wanted to get it totally resprayed. I love the color, but the original job was not done great. Lots of corners cut on prep work around trim, etc... Nothing you don't already know and probably ate away at you like constant little paper cuts.

I really loved that little car though. I'm really happy to see it getting the love I couldn't afford to give it at the time. Keep up the good work and keep posting the pics!

18psi - To be fair, that car went through like 2-3 other owners after me before it got to him. I didn't add that dr1fto dent to the quarter panel. I just built turboz and blew motors. Pretty much where most of my money went. In hindsight... there are lots of things I could have planned out better, gotten a better result, etc...
