Put a few more hours into the car tonight.

Ripped the bumper back off and started getting the wiring ready for the led lights. Also took off the whole reverse hood kit and put my factory hinges back on.




We then got all the lower grilles molded and ready to be glued into place tomorrow night. This mesh is very thick good stuff, which actually made it harder to mold. This took us a few hours!!






I then ripped the rear Facia off the car. Amazed this thing is only held on by a few clips and 4 tiny T15 screws in each fender well.


Will be getting ready for paint tomorrow as well!


And here is a tiny photo of the area we added more glass to increase the sturdyness of the bolts.


Thats it for today....amazing that it took us 4 hours to do just that stuff.

Havent been able to get down to work on the car, mostly due to the recent storm and my buddy who owns the shop being busy.

Its frustrating. Im hoping to have everything done by this weekend, but highly unlikely

So just got off the phone with my buddy who has my car. I did NOT ask him when it was going to be done...... I TOLD him it was going to be done this week. He agreed and said IT WILL be done.

So i should have the car back in my hands this week or shots will be fired!

Hahaha, that'a boy. That's how it's done right there. It's probably been a really frustrating experience. I can't wait to see it all done though.
