Re: 1/4 scoops mock up

UPDATE

so apparently they did nothing to the car from the time i stopped by and showed them where to put the stripes(which was thursday). i was told they would shoot the silver friday, and then the clear saturday, let it bake all weekend, then finish it up by monday.

that wasnt the case. they didnt shoot the silver friday due to issues with their equipment. he then said they do NOT spray any paint on saturdays, saturdays are just 8 hours of prep work to get caught up on all the other cars.

he said they would be spraying the silver on today, then letting it bake for a hour or two, then hitting it with the clear, let it bake all night, then hopefully get it all finished down tuesday and be done by tuesday night(5:00ish).

i told myself to be patient and let them take however long it takes to do it right, but dammit, im getting ancy cause driving to work with mom in her neon(with srt4 badges), just aint cool.

Re: 1/4 scoops mock up

ya forgot you had the stock fogs, the harness on your current fog lights will not work on the 03 cobra fog lights (which if im right are the same that roush uses) its odd... they have a diff hardness but its a simple cut and splice thing you just have to order the right plugs from ford (pretty cheap)

Re: 1/4 scoops mock up

Brandon, sh. What you have to do to the stock harness is pull the end connector off, and pop the roush one on. No splicing involved, just a pair of needle nose pliars and about 5 minutes to figure out how to do it.

Re: 1/4 scoops mock up

some permit thing i guess, they can only spray 5 days a week as to not let all those chemicals into the air and whatnot. yes i know, youre spraying inside a giant oven, yada yada yada. california remember...............

Re: 1/4 scoops mock up

well ****.

i guess they got it out of the oven earlier today, and he noticed the paint on the front bumper was messed up(had some bubbles/rippling), so they are going to sand down the whole front bumper, reprime, then redo the stripes, then redo the silver and redo the clear. which will take till friday.

he said strangely, every other part of the car came out flawless, all the other aftermarket pieces went through and came out just fine.

im so going to do the fattest burnout in front of my house once it gets back.

Re: 1/4 scoops mock up

nah at least you know that theyre not going to give you the car until they are satisfied with the finish, and im sure they know what to look for in a paint job more than i would.

Re: 1/4 scoops mock up

when it comes to body shop work and the government you have to take a due date with a grain of salt.

Re: 1/4 scoops mock up

yeah but a quality job comes before my patience. id rather it done right or not done at all.

we shall see tomorrow. they got the front out of the paint booth from spraying it silver, and were doing the clear as i called them, then theyre letting it bake overnight, and said he doesnt see any reason the car shouldnt be ready by noon friday.

im hoping my boss will let me leave a hour early (like at 4) so i can pick the car up, and shoot straight over to the muffler shop and get the tips welded on. then agian, i have a ****load of crap to do tomorrow, it sucks knowing exactly what youre going to be working on and how not fun its going to be before you get to work.

Re: 1/4 scoops mock up

not 100% complete.

apparently they left on the 1/4 window weather strip trims, thinking the 1/4 pieces went over them. nope. now theres a small strip showing under the 1/4 pieces of black. he said he can touch it up.

then they also closed the door when the inside jambs were drying, so it smashed the paint and looks stupid. theyre gonna redo that later as well.

and they got paint on the hood scoop screws, so now they dont thread and they dont want to risk snapping them in half, so theyre getting new ones and will be in tomorrow.

i will have the car tomorrow(saturday). they can have it later to fix some of the smaller blemishes that will arise after closer inspection.

have fun with these little teasers though............

nah those probably wont come till mid summer. i need a better pc first. though i might order the tri-star spinner spoke thingies that go in the bullitt rims, that might add a little bit to the effect.

Re: 1/4 scoops mock up

yeah im on my new PC right now, still working out some bugs(system is kinda unstable, i believe the 400w power supply isnt enough for 5 fans, a 6600GT video card, 2gb of ram, a motherboard that needs 300w alone, a CD/DVD drive and 2 hard drives).

lemme see if i can upload some later, theyll be pretty big though.

Re: 1/4 scoops mock up

wouldnt it leave a gap?

i love it. it turns so many heads its unbelieveable. i was at a light, and there were 3 guys in a yellow rumble bee ram, and one guy pointed it out and all the other guys started pointing and you could tell they were saying "da gone, he gone and made eleanor, oohwheee".

it definately needs some deep-dishes out back, though rims/tires are gonna have to wait, i gotta pay off the paint job first.

plus the body kit and wing gave me like 20hp, i should be in the 12's next time i go to the track.................

I agree onthe skirts, but thats only because there are not tips in them.

Re: 1/4 scoops mock up

the exhaust tips will pull the side skirts in a bit. You need to restore your headlights now, they look a bit hazed. What rims are you going to run?

Re: 1/4 scoops mock up

Im not digging how the back bumper "insert" area or whatever you call is carries the stripes, i think it would look better blacked out.

Tint your tail lights.
