From Russia with love...


Most of the excitement died once I opened the box...




Rest of the wing looks ok.


Overall.. nice quality.. but i bit too heavy for my liking.
It does feel solid. Test fit to come !!!

Alrighty then....

First things first..

We test-fitted the wing and it fits like a glove.
Only 1 hole per side needs to be drilled in the trunk.
The other two fit with minor adjustments.



Another shot from the rear...


On that note the wing repair process was started..
I was hoping for the quick-and-easy fix but we had to "operate".

Wound was opened up.


After some patching...


And more patching...


It was ready for some bondo action...


Moving right along...
Final coat of bondo being sanded...



All done and almost ready to prime...


Oh.. it would be ready if it wasnt for more bondo!!!


But the door sill is ready !!!


Some more bondo was applied to beautify up the tranny tunnel.

mercedes liquid metal :) probably one of the coolest silvers out there by far. It takes a really good painter to lay it down as its a 4 stage process.

Also i would recommend skimming the quarters and fenders if you want them perfectly straight.

Yeah.. look really nice..
A tad darker close to evo's Graphite Gray...

Looks like an expensive paint.

Nothing more than base and clear. That is good enough for a polack, actually should be happy with that, but for white a single stage will do...
