looks good, but the side skirt has to go, atleast prep under it and have the car painted with them off, install them again later if you so desire.

Thanks,

The rocker is undercoated and painted black underneath, I hate the look of the bare rockers, so i'm gunna leave them on for now, if I disslike it when I'm done, I would put the stock trim back on, long term is to find something actually made for the car. I should have lots of spare paint. A new front lip or the one from last year is planned to, kinda sick of last years though.

haha sorry, sounds funnier in person, but the hole count is nearly 9 million now, I dislike how the rocker is offset slightly from the rest of the body, and only look good covered up, so I am not really concerned about a couple more holes, and I'm doing everything I can to prevent any rust.

Thats with the front short struts in and the cut rear springs, I'll get the rear springs and purches in when the paints done. Sideskirts look awkward with the car all apart obviously haha.

Thanks

Here it is, its alot better then the clearcoat peeling red and flat black it was, but a crappy enough paint job that I wont cry if it gets bruised haha. Never painting a car again, not a keeper type car atleast.

The pics make it look alot better haha

Thanks guys

I sprayed it in the cluttered garage it's in front of in the pics.

I used a cheap Omni base/clear, with a gravity feed hvlp gun and a 1.4 tip.

I had terrible lighting and not alot of room to do it, might give it a good wet sanding and another coat of clear in the future.

I'm considering the front lip from last year, gunna mount it differently so I don't have to drill holes in the fenders haha.

Should get some re-assembly done this week.
