Under the Hood and the Rad support....inner fender lips are done as well.



A typical door jamb.....all the doors are done...plus I did the hinges individually.....same with the jambs on the car itself.



General Trunk shot



Close up of the trunk.

I sprayed everything with it off the car except for the hood. I stripped all the parts off of it and then spent about 4-7 hours of sanding and cleaning prep before I could put a coat of paint on.
It's a solid colour and it's a Dupont Centauri Akrylic Enamel Urethane paint (a bit different that the typical brittle Acrylic Enamels)
I did the tint and mix myself.

The whole car is masked off and on jack stands right now in my shop to be sprayed in the early morning before it heats up.

skuce as much as i like you and your ride/s i hate that color. a guy near me has a 4dr gsr painted near that color and it never blings. the paint is smooth and glossy but it will not get bling. like blinding shine. no matter what he does it jsut will not bling. i know he has alot of clear on it also. i hope yours doesn't turn out liek that.

Yeah...I know you hate that colour....and to tell you the truth...it's not my fav either......but at least it's painted. I'll probably change the colour to a "House of Kolor" next year

Yeah, I thought it was ugly too. The front end doesnt match up at all. You can see how wavy the glasswork is at the hood seam. The front wheel well doesnt do it for me at all. Shoddy work if ya ask me. Could be a decent color if the car had professional bodywork done. The Lime green thing looks like it might turn out to be a pretty decent lookin car though. Good job.

yeah thats funny pappa dukes was gonna coem through and hook me up with the 96 scort if it stayed under 500 for my b-day.....but he saw the hood thing and was a little turned off then he said why would a bank reposess a escort? There were a few things thta didnt seem right.......You read the part where he said he will NOT sell it in maryland? That was weird.
