I really like the direction of this!
Took it easy tonight, wetsanded the back and passenger side. Started polishing.
Anybody got an adjustable speed orbital polisher with some polishing (wool?) pads I might be able to borrow? The Porter Cable random orbital I have works OK, but takes a little too much time for my liking and doesn't cut quite as well as I need.
Got the trunk and passengers side polished tonight. Have a couple of places that need touching up, but overall the paint is at about 95% right now. Still need to do the hood, bumpers and roof.
Need to pick up the pace a bit and get the oilpan, wheels, and intake manifold done. Then onto the wiring I'm thinking. Going to try and get all the dirty cutting/grinding/welding/polishing/painting done while we've still got good weather!
Now I just need to pick a front bumper lip spoiler (either CL or SEAT Toledo) and get that on the way.
Just bump the price a few bucks to cover 'handling' and give me the actual shipping cost instead of some nice round number pulled straight out of nowhere. Or, tell me shipping is going to cost $39.84; which sounds infinitely more believable.
Yesterday I cut a couple of pieces of aluminum to fill the spark plug holes in the intake manifold, Going to try and weld them in tomorrow or Monday. New tie rod ends installed, found steering rack boots torn, need to try and locate some of those now. Did a little touchup on a couple chips in the paint (need to be more careful around the car I guess), will need to wetsand and polish again eventually.
I've got work tonight and tomorrow morning, will try to get some updated photos up when I've got something to show.
