Painted!!! I also desided to do the fenders as they where stone chipped and one had a bad color match when I bought the car. (forgot the camera the next day when I did the painted, so its only a cell cam pic)

What a difference that made. If I had the space and equipment to do that, I'd hold onto my 94.

Nice, I assume you like it? Have you ever used the Plus? If you have, how would you compare them? I'm going to leave my Mustang at your work just in case you get bored again. You can spray it on your lunch break or something.
