Thank you... but my plans change daily based on what I find under the skin.Nice looking car and lots of good work done by you. I like the side skirts. Do you know who they are made by?
The Side skirts are Kaminari. And I have the matching rear bumper lip too. Are you interested? :grin2:
This weekend when I tried to remove the damaged bumper and fenders, the side skirts had to come off in order to get the fenders off. It was a mess. The side skirts had a couple inches of material MOLDED IN to the body. So to get the fender off, I had to first remove the side skirts, which required breaking away the molded seams. Here she is with fender and side skirt off. I've started sanding out scratches and dings on the driver's side.
That gave me a chance to clean off the underbody and anywhere I saw rust, I cleaned it and sealed with self etching primer. The front bumper support looks like it was cut at the ends, so they were rusting. THere was white overspray everywhere and lots of dust and dirt. Front end now looks minty fresh.
UNFORTUNATELY, the previous owner did an amazingly CRAPTASTIC job of modifying the paint and body of this car. I took this one photo to illustrate 4 different bad decisions made.
1) rubber side intake shroud painted - trying to strip off this paint to leave them black
2) Bondo filling the door trim line the length of the entire car. It's cracking and sagging in some places.
3) side skirts partially molded into the rockers (broken off)
4) Unpainted original side skirt/rockers, overspray from loose aftermarket side skirt, fiberglass resin leftover
BUT, on the upside - engine mechanicals seem to be sorted. She starts right up.
New fenders and bumper have arrived.
