More pics to come. Depending on when the front bumper gets shipped it should be done (crossing fingers) by the end of the week.

BTW Im really glad I didnt attempt the body work myself. After hearing about how many mistakes I've made Im glad Im paying a professional handle it. His name is James Wemmitt and he just started how own business in Fayetteville. We agreed on the level of "niceness" I wanted and so far things have been going really smooth. He's a really nice guy and so far Im glad to be doing business with him.

Are you going to change colors also while you are at it? Looks like the whole car is roughed up.

Anyway, keep us up to date!

The color is called Brickyard of the '03 Nissan 350z. Its like a really dark burgundy. It will look black at night. For some reason I like colors that are really dark shades like that. It should be done by Monday.

Ok, Here are the pics! There are obvious imperfections. The clear coat for some reason didn't cooperate in a couple spots. But Im happy. I didnt want it perfect. I would say it's pretty good quality for not having to pay 3 grand. I gotta go back in a week so we can buff out some of the spots where the clear coat is dull. Note the pearl doesnt really show up too much in the pics. In the sun its actually pretty glittery.

And before you tell me, "lower it" NO Im not going to do that. The front bumper is already an asses hair away from the ground. And yes, my tires are big...and dirty.

That looks really good. You don't need to make any discalimers about that paint job...
