        I can relate to all the sanding!

        My next one needs to be a patina car! (I keep saying that, but...)

          all of my rides will eventually be patina rides.... e.g. my FJ40 is on its way.... but rather then faking something, I explain that I put 10 years of smack down on it and it will get the rest of my life more.... this C3, same thing, the painting this time is to repair damage - but it, the Blazer, the FJ40 and the Buick wagon... all will start out nice then wear. The 50 Buick... that might get an exception because of the tribal stuff that's bleeding out from under the white paint.

                • and it's back
                  spoiler braces

                  and a necessary oil capture tank

                  oil catch can installed

                  and strut installed

                  and from a distance

                  I'm disappointed in how the paint turned out but if I can get a few minutes to finish a tune then I'll be racing in a month

                      • well, it does look LOTS better. I pulled up to the detail shop and this C8 was sitting outside. I was like "damn, they polished it into a C8".... alas, nope.

                        nice C8, nice lady who was driving it. Apparently I'm supposed to have a name for my C3 (other then Fuuuuuuuuu). hers is black widow, she said she has lost 3 husbands.... I can't even....

                        anyway, it turned out very very well
                        I had protectant put on the hood in a matte... think it looks good

                        they worked on this for 2 solid weeks and it really shows Auto Lounge for those in Tri-Cities

                        engine

                        got home, 2s to goo.... I love my wife's dog, no really, I do, I think

                        I was, seriously, having trouble with glare the last time I raced this at PDX ... so the matte is for a purpose
