93-SSE is on a distinguished road

Wowie, lol.

Great speed work, and I like the redneck frame puller, I'm sure my dad would have tired the same thing, even before asking a shop.

I'm considering an '93 Green SSE near me more and more now, it wasn't in nearly as bad shape as that one was but it has over 200k on it, not sure how much farther that'll go. Too bad I am deep into working on my own SSE.

I'll see if I got those door cladding clips layin around tomorrow night once I get home!

Very nice work. Have you ever used a buffer? A quality detail job would make that paint look almost new. Something to consider.

Yes, but nothing professional. Don't look at the paint yet, that will be on the last things I do.

I didn't get a lot done today because I was running all around doing errands that I have been putting off. Basically all I did was the rear bumper today. It literally only took about 30 minutes

backed up on the ramps to make it easier.

Old bumper off

New bumper and exhaust shield installed. This bumper was repainted at one time, that is why it does not have the black stripe on it. I found some overspray on the exhaust shield that proved that. Thats fine, it looks great, 100x better than the old one.

Tomorrow my spray tint will be in and I can tint the tails. I ordered some touchup paint today to touch up the hood and the door edges and stuff, that should be here early next week. My clear corners should make it here by this week I hope. Not really much to do anymore on it

Did the new bumper come with a license plate attached?

masking tape, news paper, 500grit sand paper and a black spray can is all you need to fix up that bumper

Yes, the one on the ground is the one that came with it.

I might jump into that later into the game, but its honestly probably not worth my time to the buyer

I like the painted look of the bumper better than the flat black. I would leave it.

I might just do that.

I got word today that my Duplicolor spray tint didn't make it on the early truck at Carquest, so I have to wait until 2pm today to see if it came in. That gave me enough time to get started on the tails. First to take apart both drivers tails and remove water from them, and then swap the better lense onto the good base.

Check out how bad the delam was!
