Fucking terrible. Why don't you just go buy a race car that's already built?

You just need to hydrate and eat more potassium. Try coconut water.

Put that new improved version of plasti dip on there. Actually looks like real paint now, but you can still peel it off. Autoflex

Donít wrap it yourself, pay a professional to do it.

I got a quote I can live with on wrap. Actually 600 less than I had heard was the average cost and it is a reputable place.

Still waiting on a few quotes on paint and body to come in. Not like it will be ready for paint in the next month or two so there is some time. And even still, I may get home in August like I want and if all things go well, I will get a lot of time to work on both the new coupe and getting the vert apart. I can use that time to set up for paint or drag it to get wrapped one day.

All the above being said, I am thinking about buying some junk fenders and giving some bodywork a go. I have always had a fondness for DIY garage paint jobs. But I have some garage things that need to get tackled first before thinking I can paint a whole car in there.

Slight update though, the motor/trans will be coming out of the coupe before I bring it back to the house. It will save me time and may give me a chance to strip the bay down even further, weld in some ScottRod blank panels and weld up a few holes and try some body work in there myself.

Or you can do the prep work then let the shop do the painting. In this way, you can save some cash.

If one of those prerequisites is drinking in there, let me know. We need a DFWMwhiskeyfest v2 one day.

I have been wanting the put together another. I'm in a holding pattern in between Africa and Afghanistan. I'll know my next leave dates in 3 weeks or so. I'm aiming hard at being home at least for August 27th.

I don't want to say I have more money than time but, I certainly don't have lots of time.
