After a long while working out the dents. And stripping the plastidip. The roof had a tree limb fall on it and that was fun popping out. It was the middle of summer over 110 degrees Fahrenheit or 43c. And 10 lbs of dry ice. That was pretty cool, no really that hot roof and the shock of the dry ice and
cur -pow out came the major parts of the dents.

The rear 1/4 rusted out over the bumper
Took an old eg front fender and cut the tip off and it is a perfect fit! Welded and it was all good, : ^ )

After the b.w. it was final time to paint! I made a HUGE MISTAKE and bought paint from Paint My Car off Ebay. Never ever think your going to save any money that way! The stuff was urathane base/ clear. More on that later...

Looked good right after the clear was sprayed. But then a week later the clear lifted up and detached from the base!
Talk about a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach. I bought a car cover and left it outside the shop for a year!!
Then I just had to move the car/ sell.
This time went to my local PPG shop and bought the paint. Turned out way better than the cheap Ebay paint kit.
