The car will be with the same original color (Code YN).. and i want it to be just 1 color... but to be honest, i almost think to repaint the car silver metallic and the trunk cover and the hood black... but a the last minute... i decide to keep it original!

It`s gonna take around 2 week to finish the project.. after, the car will go to sleep in the garage for the winter.

And again... feel free for comments and questions! :)

BTW: sorry for my poor english... i try to make my best! :)

Was there previously a spoiler on the car? Looks like you might've filled in some holes! Jw

Idk man, I'm all for a spoiler delete but that dovetail you had went really well with those taillights and deck lid panel.

Her a little update of the process... sorry it take a while.... i was really busy at work!!!...

The cars is painted...so now it`s time to put back all pieces toghetter!
The only problem we got, is the hood... i bought the hood from a guy on internet 2 days before the paint and because the hood was covered of rust proof protection (grease), i din`t see the crack on the side... so i was really piss off... but my friend with is magcial hand fix it!!...

So here a picture of the hood in the process:



Here 2 pictures juste before the final paint....





And then... more picture just after de base coat...










And the last picture for today.... with the clear coat ON






The car should be ready soon!! I hope!!! But worst thing... the second is ready... the car is going to sleep in the garage for the winter... so it`s gonna a long winter......

Just think, that time it is in the garage for the winter it will have fresh clean paint and it won't get dirty in the curing/drying time for the paint... So at the end of the summer you wax her and start her up
