I heard some progress had been made this week so I went and checked up on my car this afternoon.

Found a number of new parts had been painted, Door handles, Gas Door, Tail Light Trim, hood vents etc.






The core support has been painted and the front bumper installed.





My Spoiler, grill and front lip are still sitting around doing nothing though


This is the kind of thing that pisses me off.. I don't know how many times I asked these for these to be removed before they painted it

I totally know how you feel on them door things. On my last paint job, I removed almost everything myself to avoid that. I asked them to remove the back window, and some old seal shavings fell down. 2-3 little ones and a pretty nice size one were just left... oh yea, painted right over. Glad it's on the back seat area, is a race car, and I don't mind a little spray paint to fix it.

But f me man. You got one job you do all day, clean, prep and paint. And we are paying you to do it. Don't be a lazy ass!

See you got me ranting now

Exactly, it would have taken the same amount of time to remove it, as tape it off.. Actually scratch that, the guy must have taken all of 3 seconds to mask it off that badly..

Thanks for the comment BTW, beginning to think no one was watching

Thanks, me too.

If you hadn't guessed, a genuine STI V is my inspiration, however I wouldn't want to wait until you could legally import one to this country, nor would I want a RHD car here either.
