Sunny in Denver


SDIM4468 by Me and my sigma, on Flickr

Got bumper fang resprayed, painted reflectors, dings and scratches fixed. Looks good. Needs a great claying, polish and wax now. Can't wax painted areas for 90 days...sigh. Denver skyscrapers and Rocky mtns in the background.

Also one more question who did you have do the painting?

Thanks, yep, out Hampden before you hit E470.

Had Abra Auto Body on S. Abilene do the work. They did a good job, but I'll be taking it back for a few spots that need work. I hope they'll do me right, don't doubt that they will.

Abra is charging about $250 to paint/clear coat/install the lip. It was 5.1 hrs at $50/hr.

I drop off the lip on Thursday.

Round 1 of polishing on the "M" completed, looking good, although dust was everywhere. Tried using tape on the rubber bits and clear bra, but it just caused more issues. Don't know if it's worth it. Enjoying using the Porter Cable 7424XP, and learning from Junkman videos.

Car went into paint shop today to install lip (round 2). Fitment was great this time, and they will fix some boogers from the first trip to the shop.

When it comes back, I'll get into round 2 of polishing, cleaning up the rest of the scratches. Once that's finished, I'll move into the final stages of polishing and glazing.

Probably gonna get a front parking sensor too, I have no skills judging curbs.

Well, I didnt even mention the wax part, that'll be a while. The shop miscalculated the time involved to do the car, so they wouldnt have it ready for the weekend. So I picked it up, and will take it back in next week.

Guess I get to polish some more.

Lip is installed, looks great, and took some fortuitous double rainbow shots with it yesterday.
