Not bad.

Looks like you put some decent windshield wipers on it too.

She looks nice all gussied up like that!
thanks.

first i washed down with some dawn soap to clean most of the shit off, i should have scrubbed a few old hard bugs off...found those later. oh well

then i touched up some stone chips and scratches with the dr colorchip. works well actually! just tedious as hell.

next i buffed the whole thing with scratch-x and burned out a cheapshit 6" random orbit...and then burned out ANOTHER one :lol:

finally i waxed it down with some cheap/lazy teflon spraywax. forgot to get the wheels though! i'll do those tomorrow.









and then it rained!

it rained when i was at mcdonalds grabbing a snack, i knew it was coming. a quick blast down the road at 60 dried her off mostly, then i wisked the water off the sides with the silicone blade.

Nice. You gonna do anything to it Wheels, Tints?
may paint the wheels a matte gunmetal...may not. probably red calipers at some point. no tint, all i could tint would be the 1/4 glass legally...what a waste.

lol :facepalm: I hate it when that happens right after doing all that work.......do you have a garage?
Me too! It's nearly never rains here and I seem to ALWAYS wash my car the day BEFORE it rains on one of the, i dunno, 7 days of the year! I catch every one of those lol.

I also like the car. Haven't seen it as a crap pile though. When I was shopping for a car a few years back, the Eclipse and Celica were the two choices I considered. Obvious which one won that one:agreed:

I use the same kitty litter box to wash my car :lol:

Good to finally see the car. From your comments it seems you really enjoy the upgrade.
