Hey all,
Im about to start work on my EF Fairmont, a full respray inside and out and XR front conversion. Was wondering if it would benefit anyone if I took photos of the whole process? Im a 3rd year apprentice panel beater and I will be doing all the work at home, everything apart from painting it, this is stripping, repairing etc. I get the impression that a lot of people think a respray is a weeks work for a couple of grand, when it is usually months work and anything above about $7000 to do a car inside and out properly, so thought maybe i could post some photos as I go? Would this be beneficial to anyone? I'm going to be doing it after work and weekends, interested in anyones comments.

Thanks
