They were not that bad bit of fiddiling around with shiming and stuff but generally quite a straight forward job!

I know it's useless without pics but we are getting damn close to finishing up on our end of the deal for the time being...... we hit inside the trunk up with some 2K high fill to seal any bare metal and it have C-gaurd applied on this saturday...... then we will move back to underneath and basically do the same to rear half of the floors which it seems like its taken forever to prepare for the C-garud......

It is scheduled to go to the paint shop at the end of this month...... that being March 2007

I will snap some pics on the weekend!

speaking of pics I still have to post tug in the park ones but we have computer problems at home..........

Wow.. sounds like it's going ahead nicely for you... here i am still screwing around with trying to put it back together

Are you getting it sprayed all together? or panels off and then assembling it?

It all will need to be dummy assembled to check fitment of the aftermarket parts and I'd say all the door shuts and inner edges of the panels painted and then masked and the whole outside painted at once..... then mask up for the hockey stick stripes which will be done in a metallic white and then put under clear so there is no edge!

I'll roll it out tommorrow with any luck and get some crrent pics!

Yeah i have in 2 minds about how to spray it.. I'm going to be assembling to test fitment, and then if i should strip and send out for spraying.. flow coating etc... pieces is better.. Edges, door jams, interior etc i'll be painting myself first so thats no issue...

But then i know inevitably i'll end up scratching it putting it all together again once it is painted

I'll see what the spray painter says...

And yeah get some current pics of yours... And when you order shims, let me know i might get youto put in a few extra for me

If your reffering to the font end alignment shims I already got mine..... I got a front end fastner kit with all bolts nuts clips shims and what have you it was about $35 US from memory?????

The parts I have for this car would easily take another car space in my garage and thats not laying em out that's compressing it! LOL
