what center caps do you have on there? couple pictures are what i believe are the stock plastic ones, but some of your "after sanding pictures" look like they are metal (006 center caps)
WTB: NIB/NOS OEM 16v lip/chin spoiler, passenger side...... BIG MONEY NO WHAMMIES!!!!
Put a coat of primer on the engine bay to see what still needed work and what was good. Getting closer to paint.

Alright so I have been really thinking about something. I am thinking about cutting the rain tray out and making a panel to cover the rain tray area. This will clean up the bay and also cover up the pocket where the wiper and everything is. I am going to make it removable so I can still have access to everything. Hmm. I think I am going to play with this when I get home.
No more rain tray.
Got the rear wheels finished on the coupe. This is about where it's going to ride. Rear fender lips need some work. It is sitting on the tire right now. Now to get the front ones straightened so I can finish them.
Cut out some pieces of the firewall and replaced them with flat pieces. Cleans it up some. There are a couple other places I want to cut out and flatten out but I think I'm going to leave them alone.
Got one of the sides of the bay flattened out. Now to finish welding it in and start on the other side.
Got the knuckles torn apart today. Hubs and bearings are out. As soon as I bead blast the knuckles I'm going to put the new bearings and resplined hubs in.
Left: old hub. Right: new resplined hub. Just a little bit of a difference. Now I can run 4 lug and also fit the larger o2m outer cvs in the hubs.*
Put the wheels on it and rolled it out into the daylight yesterday.
Looks good. Always nice to see your car outside for the first time, and see all the dirt and dust in the sunlight.
Just washed the accumulated grime off my car from 3 years of indoor and outdoor storage myself.
