      Why didn't you just take of the lip spoiler rather than mask it? It's just a few screws..

      Yeah I told him he could. But he chose not too. We pulled the rest of the car apart.

      Now time for the photos!

      Basically just using a small buffer to bring that paint back. Red fades in the sun mostly, so those places don't see a lot of sun so they are in pretty good shape. A quick detail gets then close enough for me.

      Yeah way faster then I would have expected! And yes OE Flash red, and its pretty in your face bright. Tornado is a good bit darker then Flash.

      Thanks for all the compliments guys. Heading up to reassemble it here in about an hour. I'll post more pictures tonight.

      Reason I asked is because paint looks a little darker than Flash red - especially the pic with the bumpers/spoiler. I could swear on that pic, paint looks exactly like how my paint came out when I did the respray...but its probably just my idea

      Hell ya man. This thing lookin bad ass. You could always hit the jams this winter too. There are a couple seems you could mask off the rest of the car. Plus it's pretty easy to blend brand new paint. I think this is going to be the best year for Corrado's at h2o.

      You should meet me up on Monday night in Kingstowne (Alexandria). There are about 50 cars weekly. I'd love to check this thing out. I'll have my car there (with stock Passat wheels).

      Yeah its good to have friends. Wes worked his butt off on this one. I'm just happy its all one color. Won't be competing with the paint on like your car and some of the others. However this isn't a show car, its a toy that I enjoy driving the piss out of! But still respectable enough to enter into shows.

      Dude, I wish I had just gone the route you did sometimes. Every little nick hurts but it's been a while since I had it done so the honeymoon effect is over and if it get a scratch or a nick, I just say f it.. It's a car. I took it out for a beatin' tonight... It was awesome. I need more boost though, 10lbs ain't cuttin it. I gotta stop procrastinating and wire up my EBC.. 10lbs is fun but it makes me really curious what 23lbs is going to be like. haha
