    Are you ditching the saleen wing? You should post this on ftf also in the garage section.

    :lol:

    I need a hood, rear bumper, and trim too. Can't afford it right now. The Capri has been there for ages so, I doubt it'll go anywhere... :D

    kind of wondering that myself. that WILL show through unless you prime the whole car in black. darker the primer = darker the paint

    looks like it's coming along nicely though

    Umm, the car is primered with grey primer. The black you see is paint.

    It'll turn out fine. This one did. :D :hail2:

    Does it matter? LOL I got it through JC Whitney 8 years ago.

    It's a Saleen style wing. Is that better? :shrug:
