    Default More redneck auto work from Paul.....



    Okay so I JUST got her back Wednesday after waiting 2 months while they moved the shop before they could patch my passenger lower quarter. Bad timing on MY part, not the shop's fault. Great work, great price, they are THE MAN. SOOO glad to have it back finally. Almost felt like my buddy was bringing me up to *buy* a new car lol. Felt like I didnt own it anymore, couldnt even go out and sit in it! Sure most of us have been there at least once. But I no sooner get it back than decide I have to do the trim already I been meaning to do it forever. That and the grille. Supposed to match the body.

    So....I did it. Rattlecans, and found one that actually pretty closely matches the car, that worked out nice. But we have a lot of random things in this house, such as a box of 2500 sheets of low grade thin dot-matrix printer paper with hole-punched edges for the feed mechanism. So yea its probably like 20 years old. Like the other random items, namely hundreds of pounds of metal stock, dad grabbed it from work because they were throwing it out.

    Really came in handy. Have fun roasting me lol. Pictures of the finished product later...had to bring it over for its inspection so they oughta be done with it this afternoon. Im extremely happy with it. Even overheard someone in this group of kids like mid 20s as I was pullin outta the local Friday night hangout say "wow look at this freakin thing...cougar..."

    I think he has them but likes it better w/o them.

    FYI if you have to do it again, the antenna base cover pops right off with a flathead or knife.
