More pics of the progress. The car has been sanded so many times, & in so many places. It looked perfect to me everywhere except for the front hit, but I guess he kows what he is doing.

the hood has been redone (sanded down) 3 times allready

Not sure if you ever mentioned, but what color are you painting it? The same color, something unique?

Is it a surprise?

Considered doing any floor pan work, or under the nose aero work to smooth out the airflow underneath so your splitter is functional?

The window trims are out, Its not to hard *** soon as you get the first one out. You have to push them towards the glass and when they are loose pull them up. Im gona cover mine up with the same material they use for the stickers you buy on this forum, it sticks to the car very good and it holds well to the wether Ill take pics when I do it & will let you know how it works.

The paint is basically the same a little bit more glitter thats all.

If by spliters you mean the fiberglass pice for the back bumper, its just for show not go.

the hood will be functional but I still need to work on a box that will hold a filter. I doubt that it will be any good for performance but Im thinking Ill only use it for shows & for daily use I will get a sistem from Intence.

All the ground effects are getting painted (no clear). I love the color, it looks more charcol gray than blue. My friend tells me that when the clear is aplied the blue will come out. & now I dont want to use clear. The car would look so cool like that without shine.

After he painted the hole car, the hood got sanded again. He told me that he wasnt a 100% happy. Now the car needs to get paint again before the clear. Hope not to long.
