See, I told you so lol.

At first, the clearcoats started to come off in small speckle. As you can see, I removed about 50% of the bumper's top coat (the darker paint in my previous pics) by myself. I literally tried almost everything in order to remove only the topcoat w/ tape adhesives, razor blades, air compressor, etc. Then, I got a minor hit 'n run and it cracked the bumper so I gave it up about 1 year ago lol.

Good thing about this upgrade is that I get to keep my original bumper for moding it w/o her face being bare naked while she gets her face surgery.

Feels nice to take a closer look of her face. Even a pic like this was too close to show, before her old face lol.


First time ever to show her outdated eye w/ a closer look lol.

The shame


Is your lower grill painted white? Just checking he he.





----------------------




A little progress for a lazy person lately.



When I first received a BR's front polyu lip, I figured it wasn't perfectly flowing with my side skirts.





It took a while to move my lazy ass, but I finally decided to try adding a little more contour on the lip by shaving it with a dremel + manual sanding.





Just this section on both sides. BR's ver.1 lip has the nice contour on this particular section, but the ver.2 is very flat for some reasons.





It needs more work, but I'm glad that it's becoming descent.

Nice work, Richard. I wouldn't have noticed that unless you pointed it out. Good to see perfection in progress
