Awesome! We're practically like insane car changing brothers! Way to go!

Are you going to take as many pictures as I often do? I'm very interested in the doors and the fiberglass. I take it you have the 2-piece door panels that have plastic to hold the speakers? That makes it a lot easier to cut out speaker holes.

why are you removing the door cladding?

sounds like you have a wishlist that could maybe be accomplished in a few months, not few days.

Well idea is to start,well have started and finish up that week, I do not like the side cladding, want a clean look, and since I manage a bodyshop I have tools and, talent, not all my talent, by my bodymens. lol.

How do you plan to make the bumper covers match the sides of the car if there is no cladding?
