Welll when I got her she was in really bad shape. 2 years and no experience learned everything off of advice from others. Pictures are not so good but let me know what you think of the work i did.

Yeah I drive it every day! Yeah I did all the body work myself in that very spot.... and yes the same car, i found it in a junk yard, I paid a whole $230 and that was actually for the motor the body was free it was so bad. The car looked so cool I couldnt send it to the crusher so 2 years and this is where we are...

Smokin' deal. Those darker colors will show every flaw,......don't see any from the photos. One thing about fixin' major damage is that, it's easy to forget how bad it looked before,....especially when you have well blocked panels and a nice flow with your paint.
Those damage 'before' photos should be enlarged and framed,....show your pride and drive it well!

To be honest about 2000 hours I worked on it for a very long time, and I had never done body work before so I had to rework things when I and done them wrong..
