Only got in a few hours this week. Welded the license holes shut and skimmed it with 5887 3m bumper repair. Probably could have spent a little more time with the heat gun and used just a tiny bit but this stuff just works so good.

Decided not to even paint the inside of the liftgate. Soooo clean and no rust.

I will say that judging by the minor rust on my parts car I feel bad for East Coast guys....if you're seeing rust on the rockers your car is probably not unfixable but it would be easier to swap parts to a SW rust free shell.

The hood didn't necessarily need that much but it is super thin and just easier to hide the transition/feather edge this way. Tricks the eye

Haven't had much time to work on it. Did get 1/4s primed tonight. Neighbors must think I'm nuts.

Have been blocking primer for what seems like days and days because I only get to do it a bit at a time. It has blocked pretty straight. I've only had to cheat it in a few minor areas. Most likely won't even be able to tell when it is painted.

Getting close to color going on. Have to tear the bumpers and doors and fenders off and pull the windshield.

Looks like it's coming together. I'm guessing you're also a body guy by trade?

Yes sir.

Ready for paint any day. Should swap all parts from svt to parts car and have the svt in the booth sometime this week. Doors and fenders and bumpers are all ready. Have a small spot on the roof and in the door jambs that need primer.

Uhhhhhh....SLIGHT change of plans. Door jambs painted last night.

I can always change the color back to yellow in the future. This car is my daily driver and as much as I love the yellow I don't love how the sun will fade it. Plus I wanted to paint it stealth grey anyway.

Should be in the booth any minute. Paint prepping is a major pain in the butt.
