looks good but some clear and a nice buff would make it look way better imo.

looks a hell of alot nicer.

nice work on shaving the antenna and lock on the hatch...

the only thing that will get annoying is having to get in the car to turn it to ON and pop the hatch from the glovebox (hatches have power poppers right? my '86 has it....


and my '91 vert has a shaved deck...

but I rarely need to go into the trunk...

looks great man, in one of the pics it looks like you had tapped off a flame designe, is it just my imagination or did you do it then decide against it?
LOL i was hoping noone would notice that...
one of my friends decided to draw flames in the water that had come up on the hood from all the damn humidity...
such a jackass lol

so was that paint or primer?? color looks a little flat....but none the less uniform..looks good
Yeah.. it is "Hot Rod Black" by dupont... i always did like the primer look, but this is SO MUCH cleaner than just primer
besides.. anyone who runs around in true primer, is asking for cancer disaster

the only thing that will get annoying is having to get in the car to turn it to ON and pop the hatch from the glovebox
I only drive this thing on perfect weather days... so i cant remember the last time i popped the hatch..
besides, the lock was broken, and i didnt feel like going and rummaging thru a scrap yard to find a replacement, when i have the electronic pop in the glove box
