I have a friend that works at a body shop I got the car pulled apart. But he is only on vacation for a week. So I had to done above last week & now we have got the inside door panels out & new one's in the car. Dam the stock stuff is really in the car really good.

My dam luck I would have done something wrong on this part are put the right side on the left side. Pulling it apart not that bad this wasn't all that bad. But Friday night & all day sat until now it took to get the old panels cut & pulled out & new stuff back into place.

This next week I will be putting back on all the fenders & that it wasn't bad getting off the car by myself but had help pulling doors off. I will see what it is like putting all the new stuff back onto the car. Plus got me a aftermarket raised all C.F. hood hope I like it on the car as good as it looks.

So as soon as I get this back together will get Ben to do what like more that the car needs. He did the little on the car as far as drivability goes Are getting the car to run good for start up the car runs great. Just cant do any power pulls are WOT.

I can't wait until he can get the car tuned for me with all the bad luck I have had with the other place on doing it. With no more than he has done on the tune I AM SURE IT GOING TO DRIVE LIKE A DREAM FOR ME. Robert

How did you sneak the CF hood into the mix with your wife lol

Get someone with a GoPro to film your car when it's all tidied up. This way when the weather gets bad you can watch the video over and over again

Wifey don't know one hood are part from the other All I will have to say is they make like diff this & diff that for these cars. But I cant put pic's are to much stuff on the computer she does know how to work this thing.

As far as she knows about the c5 was it had a loud exhaust system on it and that was it. As long as she gets to go to the big malls & go shopping for about 3 r 4 hours she is happy. So I don't see the diff here if I ask her went did you get that it is always the same. I have had that for ever

But I do have a Cannon A590 I do have a few pic's of stuff on more than one disk that I have been taking over the new blower build & this on the z06 build on these parts.
