    I don't suppose you have the little clips that have all broken on mine?

    Shit man that tape job looks just like what I do. I just use some paper on a roll is all because I'm lazy.

    Man I can't wait to see her painted up! That thing is going to look so good! Good work on the trim too man, that little finishwork is what really makes the car look good. See too many nice looking cars with crappy looking trim that just ruins it for me. Gotta do it all up right! Nice work!

    Re: My Hoopty

    The car is painted and looks awesome! It's totally transformed! Unfortunately, dust blew all over it before I had a chance to take any photos. I have to wait one month before washing it, so you'll all have to wait. Sorry, but it will totally be worth the wait.

    After all that time spent taping and papering the back window trim, Maaco sandered it! Doh!

    I spent today at Pick-N-Pull, pulling every piece of trim off of every single back window in the place looking for unbroken clips to reattach my trim pieces after my new paint job. I got just enough, so will probably install it tomorrow.

    Woohoo!

    Still working on the white rubber trim...

    Hmm, I'd think you'd be fine washing it. Just use something that doesn't leave any wax or anything behind when you wash... Dish soap works great, because it cleans well and breaks down road grime and grease without leaving anything behind (don't want chemicals in your food?) Best to keep that nice, fresh, uncured paint clean! The rule is usually don't wax it for a month.

    I just replaced the upper control arms today, so the front end is tight now. The windshield washers work and the A/C blows cold.

    I painted the trim today:

    Re: My Hoopty

    Here she is, all gussied up and ready to hit the town.





















    I'm really impressed with the job Maaco did. Mind you, there are a lot of flaws. There are numerous bubbles, overspray in a couple places and sander marks on my trim and back window. Surprisingly, there are no runs. I'm not going to win any car show awards, but no one sitting next to me at a light will see any of this. For the $600 it cost, I'm not complaining.

    I'm still working on my belt line trim. I had it reasonably dark when the rain came and washed it all white again. I might have to break down and dye it.

    Thanks 2ndGenGuy for recommending that I rattle can those hubcaps. They look great! I have a couple more coats, and I can paint the H black again and hit them with clear coat.

    Bump. Not sure whether this got sucked down last night's database error hole or if no one cares.
