paint today.......
« on: February 10, 2006, 09:02:49 pm »
over the past few days my B1 has received a new coat of paint--totally disassembled--and with the doors-fenders-hood and decklid along with front and rear valences being painted off the car, the unibody got shot today--it will be wet sanded and buffed next week then the argent will be shot then the doors hung then back home to be reassembled. It has been about 15 months since I started and probably 6-8 more till finished.

exciting times around here and bound to get better..
