My 1993 SSP coupe looks good, right?

Wrong. Unfortunately it's all an illusion. This car defines what a "ten footer" is. I painted this car about 4 or more years ago...in my garage...in a rush. I am the first to admit my paint work was sub-par. It got me by. I am about to completely tear the car down for a real paint job. I have my painter lined up...I know him...and most importantly I trust him. 100%. I will be doing most of the prep work myself. I have already done some pre-planning and purchasing. I have a set of rear quarter windows I reconditioned which came out good.

I also ordered and have in my possession all new side body moldings as well as the A pillar trim.

One good thing is when I painted it last time I had the quarter windows out, doors off, the fenders off, all parts under fenders were painted. Door jams were painted with the doors off etc. so I won't be doing that this time (taking the fenders and doors off) as the paint under there is still all good. This was during my 2017 garage paint job.

I will try to update this as work progresses if you guys are interested.

I had sent them to a guy to have them restored...a dude named Ryan......it's a long story....he had them for 2 1/2 years and did nothing to them. A guy on facebook went to his house/shop and recovered several dozen sets of windows he was holding hostage that belonged to various people around the country. So, long story short, I spent over $100 to ship them, another $150 for work that was never done, ... $50 for the guy to recover them for me, and another roughly $75 to ship them back. THEN I basically sanded them, and used spot putty, sanded, putty, sanded, primed, sanded and finally finished off with SEM Trim Black.

This is the original hood with the original vin sticker. I painted the underside today and have a new insulation pad to go on it. This hood will be put on tomorrow as I prep the other panels for paint.

You can probably tell from the under side of the hood why I won't be painting the car.... :D It will mostly be covered up by the pad so I can live with it.

The windows were not too far gone, so I just used some 3M spot putty. Lots of sanding and re applying the putty.

Haha. It's funny, about 10 years ago while in Toronto every time someone would find out I was from Hawaii they would always ask "do you know dog the bounty hunter?" I would say "who?" And they would look at me like I was crazy for not knowing...or appearing to not know. I actually do know him, and cant stand the guy.

Not surprised, knowing your line of employment.
