Default After the wash, but before the clay bar

Well, I finally got the new radiator in, and new tranny lines (dayum -that 1990 aluminum radiator is hard to find).
Took the car up and washed it at the do-it-yourself-bay and then chamoised dry. Would have taken pics after I had the whole car clay-barred, but it was getting dark.
Car -1990 SSE, and yes, it really does need a grille and a reflector for the rear bumper.

The close-up is the only post-clay bar to show that you can see reflections in white.

Hold up!!! WHY TF is photobucket down-sizing my pics? If I wanted the pics to be small so as to withhold detailed pics I'd use my cardomain page.

they're downsized to save bandwidth. Even with the small size, your pictures are 108K. If the pictures are larger than 250KB then photobucket resizes them automatically.

Use PS'* "Save For Web" option to reduce file size but not pic size.

I forgot to take pics of the interior and engine bay. I have to fix the right rear door handle (won't open from the outside), replace the right headlight assembly with the one off my 1991 LE parts car and replace a couple bulbs.
I'll take shot'* of the engine which looks pretty decent considering it'* had only minimal detailing, and the interior which has nice leather (power headrest'* don't work though) but the carpet is going to have to be shampooed.

Stay tuned for more pics tomorrow evening.
