I like what you did with the coil covers! Did you use engine enamel? Or some type of spray paint?

I used a sander to scuff them up, then paint for RC cars, used on flexible plastics. Painted the black with testers paint.

Great name. You should see if there's some really good automotive paint artist who could put a picture of the Warner Brothers cartoon character on the rear quarter panel. :-)

I'd be to chicken (poop) to have it done. But a nice decal on a window......

Took the strut tower brace off (the wiring harness makes it difficult) and painted the center section of the top cover. Masked it off, and painted. All back together, I think it looks good.

Exhaust is done

Exhaust won!

Did the Roush Axle Backs over the weekend, took 40 minutes from start to finish, using a jack, 15mm socket, torque wrench, 12v impact gun and a 12v sawzall.

Couldn't have gone better.

Here are the links to my videos.

Stock Exhaust

Roush Exhaust

Startup and drive away, Roush

Just dropped her off to have the frame around the windshield painted black. I have AMR Charcoal wheels coming today, Lugs from Late Model resto, Caliper paint (Orange, didn't go custom, orange is close enough) from G2 usa and a set of black heat extractors coming from New Take off dot com.

By Sunday afternoon this car will take on a whole new look. I will post photos of the transformation step by step over the next few days. For now, its at the (carefully selected) body shop, they will paint the windshield surround matte (Semi Gloss) black.

Back from the painter

Here she is, a little dirty but painted very nicely.

After this, Hood extractors and then caliper paint.

I still have not heard from American Muscle on the damaged, if I don't soon, they can all go back.
