      Been meaning to update this but I keep forgetting and getting side tracked so I'll update with what I have right now.

      Got the driver quarter panel almost 100% done. I still need to wipe it with some finishing filler and block it one more time and primer it for real, but that will get done when I do the other door handle.



      Also, I've been working on the wiring harness in my spare time. I've got it 90% done. I need to find some shielded wire locally to finish it up.

      This is an older pic of the harness. I'll snap a new one when I finish it.



      That's all for right now.

      Nice thread man, I did a similar one last year but I never shaved my bay and mines a g60. I am still working on getting my wheels powdercoated and tires put on.

      Figured I'd do my tail lights all red and try my new paint gun out at the same time. 6-7 coats of duplicolor metalcast annodized red and 3 coats of zolatone clear.

      Started on my hatch today.



      Hopefully I get to work on it tomorrow, I have a scheduled photoshoot that is going to take up most of the day, but I will update asap.

      Tails came out a little dark, or is it just the sunlight?
      Nice work anyway

      I wanted them a little darker than normal, but they are lighter than the pictures. They should be dry now so I'll get some better pics this afternoon.

      Forgot to take pics but I am getting ready to paint the intake manifold and the valve cover. I got it primed and I got the front bumper all plastic welded and shaved. Might work on the filler part tomorrow if I get time in between painting.

      That thing is lookin MEAN from the rear!!! Keep up the great work bruddah!
      We may age but our hearts stay young... therefore I find enjoyment in searching out what gave me happiness when things were much brighter, simpler, easier and happier... nothing like the nostalgic feeling you get when going back down memory lane... crusin to the tunes of Boston "more than a feeling" WooHoo!
