You're come a long way, baby (Before and after thread)

Post by bronson75 » Sun Feb 12, 2012 12:34 am

A friend of mine emailed me the before picture recently, it was a blast from the past, so I though I'd fire up a thread for before and after photos and stories.

Bought this 6 years ago, it would barely run under it's own power:

A bunch of years, tons of garage time, and a little cash later, and this is how it sits now, a reliable summer daily driver and autocross class champion:

Of course it isn't done (probably never will be), but it's a far cry from where I started!

Wow... That looks 10x better.
How did you get rid of the faded paint??

Yeah, I didn't remember how rough it actually was when I got it!
The paint was in fair shape, there's some burn-through on some edges where someone got a little happy with a buffer.
Some good detailing and LOTS of wax makes it shine up. It looks good from 10 feet, but up close, it's got its imperfections.
It could use paint. Eventually.
