Default Parts

Found my old forward crossmember and tossed it in with the original horse shoe. It definitely looks better. But still not perfect. I bet the bumper is in fact twisted on the passenger side.

Kind of annoying as the first crossmember was a reprising. Which means my original is bent or has something wrong. Or the reproduction doesn't fit as well as it should...

Default Update

I've been dormant for a while. The car was dropped off at my painter some time ago. I would do check ins to Soo how it's going take pictures etc. I finally have a picture or two that gets me excited.




We are officially in primer..

Default Yep

I still need to get a chance to get out there and see it close up. But I'm pretty excited to see some progress that feels tangible

I'm headed up to the body shop to see the how it looks in primer up close. I'll take lots of pictures. Let's hope it's good work!

well here's my official update from the painter. It definitely is costing more than I thought it would. I'm not done yet!. do ake note of my super not rusted windshield frame.

That's certainly a bright spot. Amongst other things.
