That is nicely done. By the pictures, it turned out fantastically not only for a winter paint job, but overall!

Regal saying: "Fast With Class" I prefer that one since it rhymes. My brother has that on a licence plate frame.

daylight pics will probly come on Saturday or Sunday. Thanks for the compliments. And as for " fast with class" Well.....It kinda rhymes....It does accurately describe the car....But I think I like "luxury wth attitude" . So what improvements do you guys recommend to eventually do to my car. I need to do something with the air box, It is broken on the bottom. Any suggestions??

You could do a CAI (Cold Air Intake), which completely gets rid of the air box. Get a K&N or Amsoil filter so you can have it for the lifetime of your car (with proper maintenance, of course).

Awesome job.. body work always amazes me, how you can bring a damaged car back like that.

So you did pearl white, correct? I'm a fan of the factory white gold tricoat on the GXP'*, but I'll bet a straight white like this would look pretty sharp too.

Btw, I'll agree with the "fast with class" moniker... I was out cruising tonight with a friend that drives a stock vtec honda accord with a 5 speed and managed to hit all the red lights on a straight stretch. I beat her pretty easily but it was tough not roasting the tires each time, even with traction control on. The GXP'* have some serious punch.

Since we seem to be debating it, I'm on the luxury with attitude side. I agree that the off-rhyme is interesting, but there'* not much more to it than that. Attitude is more important than class. Not all Bonnevilles are fast, but most are quick. However, they're all luxurious.
