I know it's for a good cause (respray), but no-one should ever see their car in this condition...

Man, why do the rear speakers look so damn huge and, dare I say, ugly? I thought you'd be able to buy rear speakers that would fit neatly under the stock covers.

The 6x9 speakers look huge, because they are sideways... (i don't like it). Apparently the guys who did the install couldn't get them mounted properly because of the LPG tank and the lack of space under the rear window. Whilst the window is out I'll be getting them turned back to the normal orientation across the parcel shelf.

That white crap is what the car looks like when it is sanded back... These are only interim photos... only the bonnet and front guards had been sanded at that time.

I'm going for the same colour, or at least pretty close to it... might go for a little bit more red (just a touch.)

but will look good when it is done!


btw if you get a custom colour ie the more red... make sure u get the formula for the paint or at least a few more litres made up so IF worse case scenario accident/touch up you have the paint to match

I'd hate to see what a car looks like during a full body respray, in a different colour.
Btw wheres the best place to get that done, i just was thinking, do they replace all the seals, and take it all apart and put it back together?????
As in taking the engine out etc?

Sad sight indeed.

What is happeneing with the grill? is it just the photo, it looks like its been filled in, or are they actually just cosmetic, and don't have a hole behind them?
