    the bumpers and skirts still need to be done, but we are going to do those seperately.

    i wouldn't say "very fast". lol

    probably b16 in an EG territory...

    "very fast" is "very misleading". lol


    what happened to the wheels... they look gold or something...

    i beat the hell out of a tercel all the way to FL, and it was slow.

    I dunno it could be decently quick. Low 14's high 13s probably.

    did you use base/clear or something else? i know there's paint that you can just shoot and not have to clear between coats. i don't know too much about paint but i think after you wetsand it, you should spray a coat of clear back over it and then wax it. should shine it up nicely.

    nice job btw.

    i would have had to laugh a little if it was a 3 banger. At least he stuck with a 4.

    btw I think the paint looks good.
