been a while since i updated so here we go

this is what i have been rolling around with for pushing 2 years now
Image

i wasn't going to put the interior together until the body work was done because i didn't want to rip it out , but with the move coming the more parts that are on the car the less parts i have to pack so in they go

fixed the door panel with some silicon
Image

almost as good as new
Image

look interior
Image
Image

still missing 2 panels but i need new clips before those go in

my dad was cleaning / packing the garage and found a can of the red paint ive been using to paint the car it was almost full but had no cap he didnt want to pack it with no lid for obvious reasons so he told me to use it so i did

Image
Image

the only part left to paint red now is the wiper cowl

progress has been slow due to having no money im working with what i have to make it work

Looking good for home job but i recomend you to wait about 3-4 weeks before you wax it coz wax will trap all bad stuff which contains in clear cote and suppose viporize after. If its getting trapped under wax it will damage itself and paint.

That’s what i been told by painter who done my car (and i read same on different forums) and i didn’t touch it for first month nothing really can happened to paint and clear from dust in couple of weeks time. I personally recommend to clean bird shit straight away coz it will leave stains no matter what :( (at least in Australia)

You can cut and polish it it will bring out the shine and remove imperfections but wax stuff will cover car with protective layer which will trap bad stuff inside.
