Default Paint job & some custom work (6th part) clear coat

The time has come to paint the car. I feel like a kid waiting for christmas mornig.
Here are a couple of pictures of the custom work Ive done or should say Im doing to the car:

First let me say that this will be the only pic of the spoiler Im going to show untill its done.
Just an idea of what it will look. Right now it looks funky with all the fiberglass. Jopefully it will come out how I imagine it.

Since I love my tails so much & dont want to replace them, I decided to polish them. You can see how they look stock & then polished. The poished one is not done, still needs 1000, 1500, & a good buff.

And this thing will go between the two tails, stock to the bumper & will be painted body color. Do you guys feel it or is it too ricey? Anyways it wont be glued so it can be removed without harm to the paint job. When everything is done Ill see how the car looks with it & then Ill decide.

x2... you got it already the 3 lines that are in the door are part of the door, but you should see that by just looking at it.

unless you are talking about the moldings at the top of the door by the windows?

if those moldings are anything like the ones on the 92-99, you will need to roll down the window, pull out the rubber window channle then remove the screws the hold it in place, then i SHOULD wiggle out.

IF its not like the 92-99 then i have NFC how to remove them, could just be two side tape
