hahaha yes tim thats what im doing! Im repainting it black, it really looks pretty bad. technically my euro rear is panther black, which has sparkles. lol I have dings all over both sides of my car, and I have to paint my new bumper anyways so may as well do the whole thing! I am also shaving the rear trim and keyhole, the side trim, and we will see what else while im at it. lol I wish I could have done purple.

I like the purple you put on facebook, but maybe a little darker, but I see what your saying. I'm hopefully repainting my car this spring too, my car needs it terribly. missing clearcoat on the back hatch roof and bumper. so yeah lol.

Do you plan on just filling the holes under the side trim, or filling that whole space for smooth sides?

Filling the whole space is what I was planning on doing tim. Otherwise I would just paint the trim. Im also painting the side skirts glossy, and the cowl cover glossy. I already did that with spray paint 2 years ago but its faded again. Im also debating on making my euro rear a smooth euro rear, and removing the trim. If I do leave the trim, I was going to paint it and possibly relocate the ford emblem thats above the license plate to the middle of the trim on the bumper.....idk though. Was trying to think different. lol But yeah I shall be doing some shaving. :D Im excited.

So what's up on this ride Steven? Any updates?

And hey, do you like boats? I think I'm gonna get the race boat going this year, it's been awhile. Wouldn't mind getting some video of it at top speed, maybe out at Westport or somewhere close to you, in case I decide to sell. You seem pretty good at the whole video thing. Would love to get a speed pass close to docks, but those usually freak people out and they call water patrol. Anyway, I am months away, need to redo the lower unit anyway.

I will start sanding and whatnot and then hopefully we will have it done by the middle of the week. Im excited!
