Looks great! All of your hard work paid off. No one will believe it was rolled.

Thanks guys, there was a lot of hard work put into it. Now I gotta do the same thing for the bumpers! But I think I'll drive it since I haven't driven it for almost a year! affraid

Well it's been almost 2 months, the paint is still holding up well. I've only washed it once. Haven't waxed it yet either, need to buy a polisher

In the shop to have some maximum motorsports subframe connectors welded in:




Painted them with some truck bed liner, really thick and smelly stuff ruined my brush.

Had to do the rear brakes today so I mocked up one of my new wheels to see how it looks. Very Happy

Just thought I'd post an update.

The paint held up for a month but as the fall season arrived and the temperature dropped the problem I had originally on the roof has returned. Little blisters appeared on the roof after I drove it in rain. The temperature that night dropped to 2 C.

I did a little research online and one reply I found that most likely identifies my issue is:

"Micro-blisters are caused by moisture that has been trapped between layers so has been painted over, they can show up a number of years after the car has been painted, usually in cold weather when the water freezes and expands. I have a car at the moment that was painted about 4 years ago and has been fine but the recent snow has caused micro-blisters all over it."

Might have to take it down to metal to repaint next year. We'll see, it still is a good 5 footer though......

I saw one just like it Friday. In fact, I saw a white LX 5.0 convertible and a red GT convertible, as well. 3 Fox bodies in one day!

Stripping that roof all the way down, sounds like the best way to fix that problem.
