This is what it looks like now.
Everybody asks what paint. It's GTS Blue A.K.A Viper blue. PPG paint wet sanded and polished to a gem!
I bought it from the original owner for cheap! She was a early 30's woman and put 112K mostly hwy miles on it. It was stock besides a flowmaster catback. The car was clean on the inside and mechanically taken care. Now why do I say it was cheap? The body on the car was trashed. The title was clean so I didn't care. She said she fell asleep in a parking lot with it in gear or something. The front bumper was jacked up on both sides as well as the passenger side fender. The driver side fender looked fine, but needed to be replaced too because of a small crack in a spot that couldn't be fixed. The passenger side ground effect had been curb checked and the back foot was missing and smashed. The driver side door skin was peeling away by the mirror and the fiberglass around the hinges were torn. Lastly, the paint was in okay shape, but their were key marks down both sides of the car.
I make it sound worse that it really looked.
This is how it looked when I first bought it!
Here you can see my Camaro in the background. I loved that car!
I got it when I was 18...all on my own. I sold the Camaro to fix up the TA. Basically I replaced all the body parts then it looked bad different colors. I gave it a quick paint job knowing full well it was a temporary look. I didn't have the coin for a good professional one. Yes I did the paint job you see on this next page. I should clarify that I did NOT shoot the color/clear on the paint job you above. I did do ALL the prep work on page 3 for this paint job though.
