Back from Painter!

It will be 2 years November when I began this project to repair a few rust holes and repaint the car. Broke down and learned to weld and went with RS flares and the ducktail. It's been a heck of a lot of work and there's more to do, but I had to show you all what I've been up to. I couldn't have gotten this far without my daily infusion of enthusiasm from this board and y'all. Thanks, everyone, for your support. Once it's fully reassembled I'll post more before/after pics, but for now, here it is.

Thanks, all. The color is BMW Titanium Silver Metallic, a current color. Saw it in a thread called "Show me your silver cars" and went with it. Joe, come over to see it. Yours is next!

Car looks awesome - looks like a factory rear bumper, how did you modify it to line up with your rear flairs?

"I know what it is like to wait a long time to finish your project"

Are they ever really finished?
