So awesome! I know exactly how you feel. I’ve had mine for 17 years, It’s seen a lot and been through a good chunk of my life with me. When I saw it all shiney and new at the body shop last year it was amazing. I can’t wait to see the thing in person.

Congrats!

Love reading posts like this. Shows how much you care about the car. Glad to hear the sideskirts are getting painted! Thought it was a little strange they didnt get done at the same time.

I work 12-14 hours a day meow. I get naps in between work.

Plus Flickr just sold to SmugMug, and they say they will keep a 'free' version, so yea, all my pics my get messed up again. And before people say imgur, or whatever, noting free lasts forever. -_-

That’s pretty much how my Supra looked after it was stolen and found in Detroit a few days later. Except every part of the mostly empty shell was smashed.

The car looks great! I'm sure you're the one who appreciates it most, but those pictures are incredible. Do you have additional plans for the car then, or is it pretty much a finished project? 'Finished project' being an oxymoron for me apparently haha

Color Matched Sideskirts/Spats

Got them on. Car is much better looking! Missing the rear aerogaurds, mostly because I didn't have any that were painted, but I don't hate the look. I'll prolly get some that are color matched and toss em on eventually. Simple as that.

Here's some pictures.









And then I went out and tried some more light painting with the proper camera. Pretty happy with how the picture turned out, but I need to some more for some better shots.



That is all!

Thanks everyone!!

I've got a bunch of stuff to do yet, oil cooler, wiper, and some other little things and a POSSIBLE 6 speed in the not so distant future.... so... as you'd imagine it's still an everlasting project.

Main things in the menu right now are getting the engine calibration all set and installing the oil cooler so I can go do some racing. I wish I had a better way to document engine tuning, but because I have no idea what I am doing and am only pretending, it's hard for me to write stuff out about it.
