Still working on this beautiful piece of asian machinery.
So, my gloss started peeling on the hood and bumper, the hood because the guy who did the work d... Show moreidn't seal the gloss right, the bumper because he didn't prep and sand before priming and painting and again, didn't seal the gloss right.
For the time being until I have a place to do work and have time to do the work right, i will just have to use this carbon fiber vinyl overlay to cover the ugly pits and gloss flakes that are missing.

I pressure washed the engine, cleaned and painted the drum brakes (in the rear), even though I am in the process of converting my rear drums to rear disk brakes in the summer. I also installed some front marker lights (as seen on the Lit-up Page), bought a set of Mud Flaps (which I purchased brand spankin' new on Craigs List for $15) and installed them. Show Less
