Got my spring and shackle bushing's yesterday and forgot how much fun it was to get the old stock bushing's out also got the pearl white paint and some new badge's so hopefully soon it will be painted.

Well got off my ass and have been working on the waggy so saturday is the day it will be painted. Going to be a two tone job and for the color's i'll put up pick's this weekend so i'll keep you guessing for now. Not going to do the hood or roof as of now the roof has to be cut yet and the hood will have some airbrushing done to it so that will be done later.

Well got it painted but still have the air brushing to do on the hood and some graphic's may find the way down the sides. Not everybody's cup of tea for the paint or the color's but the raptor liner is a kick ass product easy to apply and lay's flat for what it is. My friend has been using this at his shop for awhile with good result's so i decided this is the way to go for me. I think it turned out good and it look's straight and clean now just have to put it back together and get the detail's done.

There will be a little more orange and some air brushing done and as far as the graphic's nothing big just something small to bring the two color's together just going to kick around some idea's.

Instead of bringing the colors together why not separate them with some pin-striping?

Little more done thinking about painting the grill white to blend it in or repaint the front bumper black or painting the back bumper orange.

Rear bumper is now orange grill will stay black and headlight bezel's are now black so pretty much done now till i do some air brushing, now on to the inside.
