Naw, I did this last night. Only took an hour to get it all done.
The reproduction stuff needed a little trimming and filing where it curved around the back of the car.
Turned out fairly well.

That looks like the one that was in wingham a year or so ago.
Upgrade your grey matter 'cause one day it may matter.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

Saw that yesterday.
If that interior was cream instead of whatever it is, it might have been worth it for me.

And the power.. a stoplight launch could likely outpull a smart car now!

:cry:

The paint i got from Helmut doesn't dry. Now I have a set of wheels that need pro refinishing.
Helmut can't be reached (as per usual).
Eurodesign is busy for at least a month.

Anybody know a paint shop that I can bring these?

I have some stuff that will take the paint off faster than something that does something really really fast...

Other than that, have you tried Portugal Auto Body down the road from me in Breslau?

Went to drop off the wheels at Eurodesign today. They will be closing up shop in a month to move to South America. :(

Started picking up supplies to get this done on my own.

Randy, do you want the number of the guy that painted my RS's? He's located off highway 400 near highway 7 from what I remember but I can help you out with driving them and dropping them off there. Let me know
