    Looks like you let that last bachelor party get a bit out of hand, didn't you?

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again; I really do admire you guys who can turn a wrench. I wish I had those skills.

    Where do you find these vehicles?? Insurance buybacks or what??

    You'll be putting in the time now...and $$

    Heck, why don't you cut and restretch it while it's empty??

    Keep us posted. Need help finding parts, just ask. Someone on her should be able to help.

    Hey, Salicete- Send him one of your models, so he'll know what the final car should look like!

    Actually, as long as he's doing the work himself, this shouldn't be very expensive, just time-consuming. Looks to me like he just has to paint the opera light area and may not plan to touch the main body. I bow to thee, as bodywork is the one thing I know not to mess with.

    Heck,just cut out the passenger cabin, and weld the TC back together. It looks to be in better shape then the rest. You could have a cheap sedan.

    The cool thing these days IS the metal flake... you can wet-sand the entire car and mix it in to the clear-coat.

    BTW, when you paint the car go ahead and remove the handles and the door code box, otherwise the paint will peel/chip around them later. They are easy to remove and re-install. Same thing with those opera lights, don't just mask them off.
