Good stuff. Hated to see the damage, but looks like she will be better than before. just think of the accident as motivation to do all types of good things. I know the money part is never any fun but the results will make you feel warm and fuzzy later. LOL

Superbowl Sunday, and while the lights are out on the field, the lights are on in the paint booth...







Got a couple of flaws, but nothing that polishing won't fix...I'm so glad to have the largest part of this done...not to mention I get to see the colors on the car finally.

I test fitted the rear bumper last weekend, and hoping to get it painted this weekend along with the trunk lid.....had a lot going on at work lately, but I'm not bitchin' about that at all....I also got the rear window mouldings and chrome back on the quarters, and the taillights are back in.

Hey Evan a quick question. On your door jambs did you mask off your decals or what exactly? I'd like to get new ones in particular for my information (tire size, air pressure etc.) but ESPECIALLY for my interior color. If you masked them and painted around them I can't tell. I'm quite curious to know how Copperfield pulled this one off.

I took a picture of that.....takes some time and surgical skills with a razor knife, but masked of with tape and trimmed out.
