Good thing is I never stopped with the gym. Lost about 90lbs!

I'm just not interested in working on it. Much rather be outside doing something else. If I had a shop or larger garage it wouldn't be an issue but with the Mustang and all tools it was hard to fit the challenger in it this past winter lol

Oh well, if the guy that hit me up don't want it I may give it another go and see what happens till either I'm in love again or it sells. Once it gets all stripped to bare metal I won't be getting rid of it.

Bottom of the doors are good, I looked inside the door with the filler and don't see or feel damage so it must have just been to make it perfect? Maybe fender/door didn't line up good enough for them idk

And I haven't. I've been busy getting healthy, lots of gym time. And I did so much so quick I got tired of it so I took a break. I'm going to have my cousin come over and try to knock out as much as possible one night.

Some bondo is okay it's the quick fixes for rust that's not lol, but it is looking very good, definitely keep it up.

I had to take a couple day break because I was getting fed up with it actually lol. Probably hit it again tonight.

And thanks! Idk guess the door had damage. The rear quarter has rust and/or damage. I'm replacing that tho bathe door might get replaced. If not the god thing was I couldn't tell it was done so that part was done correctly. The guy who painted it purple did good work.

sickfox Removed locks, moldings and the rear bumper. Oh and some paint! lol. Lots of paint...





Oh and I found filler. Great! Going to replace the back panel, probably door not sure tho. The back quarter had some rust so that's the main reason it's getting swapped.

I just found it funny how both cars had purple underneath the main coat.


And it's good it's cleaning up nice.

Now as far as the paint job goes from the previous owner, how's the metal? She looks pretty clean with no dimples on anything.

And yeah it's cleaning it up nice, going to have a lot of small areas to hit later. Now I'm just going to get all major areas then work around it getting edges and what not. I'm thinking the jams won't get stripped because he didn't spray them really. I'll sand them and clean them up real good.

I'm not sure but could be because right after the purple was bare metal.

So today I picked up two gallons and some smaller cans to put it in along with a few cheap brushes. Works alright, of coarse I wish it was a little better. But I have to consider the horrid paint that was applied thick on top of other layers.

Pics of progress






Figure tomorrow I'll have that done and move on to another area.

Looking awesome man
Keep it up
