Hey guys,

Here is how she looks like before.



Here she is In the last leg of the painting process.





I'll post some more pics afterwards.

I finally made a decision on the colour I'm gonna paint my car.

Is anyone familiar with NEORTH BLUE or Lancer Blue.

I bought the paint already. Hehehehe.....
It took me around 3 hours to decide on the paint. (at the shop)
I actually wanted Black but changed my mind at the last moment.

You can add some detail to the paint ,to make the car look different.
How about rally stripes or simple pinstripes along the sides.According to the colour you have chosen silver colour is fine for the graphic job.Hey its just my opinion.
By the way good choice.Please post the pics after its out of the garage.

The only thing left to do now is getting the bumpers painted and fitting all the things back.

Today's pics. (I was at the Garage all day (again) hehehehe.
I think I'll be able to take her home tomorrow in the evening.







I couldn't take more pics. I totally forgot about taking pics.
I was too engulfed in seeing my car come to shape.
Will post more pics tommorrow.
