How Does She Look?

OK, guys - the long awaited time has come - my baby is all done at the paint & body shop (I pick her up, Tuesday).

How does she look?

It was raining the day my guy took those photos, so the light doesn't do the paint, justice (I will post more photos this week).

Well from what I see in the photos, it looks REEEEAAAALLLLL GOOOD. After you dropping it off about March 15th and patiently waiting and watching for 8 odd months, I would say the finished product befits the time.
Will wait for further photos after you get the car home. Keep us posted.

OK, now, I can go back to tinkering (let's see, the list is pretty long - needs a windshield wiper arm, sun visors, radio, oil dip stick, heater box, carpet).

These newest photos are much better than the first ones. The paint looks like it has tremendous glossiness as evidenced by the reflections. A little detailing at overspray areas and you are good to go. That's going to be a great ride this summer. Nice job!!!

Well done, I imagine it feels good to get past the paint and on to the next thing.
