    Yea man I'm excited. I'm going to steal your idea of painting around the hatch black if you don't mind... Also I'm going for one last run to the junkyard. If you need anything let me know

    The dash was in pretty rough shape but I guess you won't be needing it anymore😞

    Anyhow, I recovered some pictures from my old phone. I painted the valve cover and carburetor cover. Also got some recessed headlights.

    Taking out the carb to rebuild it




    Painted valve cover






    Recessed lights with amber/clear corner lights






    Installed


    More body work...
    Before






    During

    Amazing. It's going to go down as a historic classic on this forum, but also widely across the interweb me thinks.

    Excited to see it come back together!

    Thanks truckslammer. It takes a lot of patience but it's definitely worth it at the end.

    Lol take a road trip to Florida before it's too late!

    The trunk handle and taillights were sanded and buffed, they look real nice!







    Now I need some opinions on whether or not to two tone the bumpers. I want it to be original but at the same time I want it to be not boring. The color isn't that dark so I'm not completely sure how it will look. Be the judge.

    I say 2 tone! I think... I thought the same thing as the picture you posted.

    I'm really not sure how it will look with the lighter gold...

    And also the black trim on the back window, It might actually be nice if you sprayed the bumpers gloss black?

    I'm so undecided and so excited.

    Paint them black. Final answer.

    Or paint them grey like old crx style. OR I DUNNO! DAMNIT

    ALSO, please tell me you sprayed the door handles matching color? That would work for me.

    Two tone it is!





















    That plate sure looks good!









    Crappy picture with the lip installed


    Anyways, the door mouldings dont look to great so I decided to just keep them off for now. If you have some in great condition please let me know. If any of you guys were wondering why there are two huge holes on the bumpers it cause thats where the rear fogs are going to go. I take really long to update things so you'll have to wait a bit for that. Also, one of my door panels got some paint on it so im looking for one also. Soon i'll have pictures taken with a real camera.
