    Here is the car I am working on on the side that is going to recieve the engine from the black car when finished. It is a 2000 DX, California car. Never seen a winter, I picked it up from an impound yard in chicago for 700 bucks, it had been wrecked in the front. Ran great, 100% stock and unmolested, perfect interior. Below is a link to my current daily driver, a build I completed last April. This silver DX will recieve a heart transplant from the black daily driver this spring. I figured it would be less cluttered to post the seperate build in a new thread and link to the other one for those interested in the setup it will recieve once completed.

    Painted the entire car, even though half of it was perfect, I wanted to upgrade the paint quality and make it truly 100% perfect, no blending no nothing. All or nothing!

    More updates to come once the car is farther along, the shell is currently sitting until it warms up enough to start swapping things comfortably. Couldn't drive it right now anyway, damn snow.

    We did all of the plastics as well. For those of you that are body guys and may ask, yes after most of the primer was done we did remove the quarter glass, windsheld, and rear glass before final prep and base/ clear.
