No real exciting updates today. Painting the odds and ends stuff mirrors, moldings, spoiler, taillight covers, rocker moldings and door handles. Going to start the rockers later on today and finish them up tomorrow then we're in the home stretch hopefully done mid to end of this week.

Well heres a update I wish i wasn't making. Cut the outer rocker apart yesterday and the inner is much worse than expected. It will all be fixed in the end, just been a long road and really want it back. I'm really hoping Friday but we'll see otherwise next Monday or Tuesday.

Yeah, this is a VERY common problem with these cars. Any of them in the North will have it at some point. Poor drainage design.

That's actually not to bad at all, everyone I've seen they have been a whole lot worse.

Thankfully their all repaired and done going to rust proof the crap out of them even if it doesn't see another winter which it won't still nice to have that added protection. Also got the doors mounted up today all that is left is the front end and a few misc things. Should be all done looking like a car tomorrow. Wet sanding and buffing it Friday should have it back Monday or Sat night.



Did alittle body work on this side because it will be seen from the door jam i promise its not just mudded up lol




Back end looks so sexy


Drivers door is full of dust thats why it looks off hue
