It was my pleasure tp paint the bottom of the deck lid today. Steve had it all mudded and in SPI red epoxy for me. No one will ever realize this was a rusty deck lid with both inner and outer bottom 4” being replaced.

The trunk area is getting the final wiring details done also. I painted it last Thursday, I think it was. It looks good but has more of a factory look than anything.

This is the first time I have been able to get far enough from the car to check out it's stance since Steve put on the dropped spindles. I think it is going to work out about right by the time the rest of the wait is added to the car.

According to Steve, the deck lid goes on next. The holes get drilled for the trim and then the hood gets mudded and epoxy primed.

Hmmmm, i may get to spray some more SPI Base/clear...

Big grin indeed!
