A little airbrush work on that shock tower and you'd never know.

Please recommend me a shop. I'm going to G&M if I don't have anywhere else to try. Driving to Cavallinos for a quote tomorrow and/or someplace you can suggest.

Can't your step-dad do it for you? I'd shoot it for ya' if I was closer. If you have access to a compressor, get some base 37U (IBM), a touch up gun ($9.99@Harbor Freight) and crank up the pressure and shoot it.

Unfortunatley, he's a manager of mechanics, and they outsource paint/bodyshop work. I'd be paying full price and driving down to San Jose. I'd need a ride back.

try to find some touch paint in a spray can, it'll cover up those scratches.

What are you going to paint in the engine bay?

the strut tower scratches. I'm afraid if I spray it myself, it won't match and look very obvious. The reason I'm having this done is because my hood is going to be open throughout the show.

Wheels delayed yet again. I'll have to mount them on Saturday before leaving and after washing my car...=(

At least I'm putting all my sponsor decals on tomorrow after heading down to ChevyG1rl's house for a full day of washing/cleaning the Rush.

Pictures inc tomorrow and Wheel pictures will have to be on Saturday.

Tower scratches are pretty well covered up.


Another update. I received some more goodies tonight. It's crooked in the last picture because of the bubblewrap still being on. Looks SUPER SHARP!!!

Thanks 01pewterz28! Top notch stuff here!

Seriously? What is up with the UPS or whomever beating the crap out of our boxes? I get stuff like this all the time. That's exactly how the box looked that the CCFL came in...

Well I spent the day at ChevyG1rl's house cleaning and harassing her about helping me make my car look spotless. I'd say we did a pretty good job. Car is clean including the engine bay, where we added the pedders and procharger stickers. Redemption came over after work and gave me the idea to place them on the strut towers themselves since the hood is going to be open all day.

Also, the best pictures that show the amber and red od the AAC sidemarkers can be found below too.

And now for the pictures of the taping party. I taped the front end, the gill area and just behind the rear wheels. Enjoy!
