Yeah the kit wasn't that bad. Just some sanding with an orbital and by hand to get the seams done. Will need to put the high beams in to work on that section.

As for color I have 3 in mind but haven't decided which one I want to go with.. All I know is I want black wheels.

Well... It's painted. The guys have wet sanded, buff and polished it.. Here are two photos of the Soarer.. Black and white photos until it's all put together.

Started working on the wheels myself. I bought these on ebay they are Stern ST-2 19" wheels.. Got em for $50. The chrome was shot. Brake dust and scratches. So wanted to paint them....

How it looked before



Etching Primer



This was one I did a while back and had sanded it down to see what did not adhere to it..



Etching Primer again



So far got two wheels Painted... Will try and have the rest done by the end of this week so I can put them on the car.

Wheel 1



Wheel 2



May give them a wet sand with a fine grit and polish them once done to make sure they are super smooth...
