    Well, I thought you guys would wanna see my car's progress at the paint shop.
    It's been there for 4 days, and my painter is awsome.
    Smaller shop, great rep, skill and hard work.

    anywho, I got some sideskirts that are a little different, and close to the look I want.
    He's got a lot of shaving and stuff to do to get it "just how I want it"

    the sides are bonded and will be blended for a clean, custom look, just my style :naughty:

    Here's a few pics, just starting.
    (they're phone pix)

    should look great jeff. the one thing i dislike about my car is the stock sideskirts. they just dont look right to me (damn mini running boards). i need to look for some other options even though i dont think there is much out there

    Looks great! I normally dont like that particular front bumper but with those sideskirts it looks to mesh really well! O0

    You put the sideskirts on!!! :banana:

    Car looks great man, I'm looking forward to seeing it with the sides bonded/blended in.

    Are you keeping the spoiler off? I think that looks awesome with that front bumper and those sides... keep up the good work man.

    Re: Dalamar's body & paint thread

    Thanks bro, I TOTALLY T O T A L L Y agree!!!!!

    I don't like how it sticks straight out, kills the line on the wells, and is kinda like a running board like you said.
    Believe me I've looked, there is no option.
    Saleen's look the best for buy and stick, but the gap around the door I don't like, or the step on top really shows on white paint.
    this will be different and clean looking when i'm done.

    Im excited :banana:

    Re: Dalamar's body & paint thread

    Thanks man.

    It's sad that ther aftermarket for the mustang is HUGE, I mean butt wild huge, and there literally no body parts that fit up clean, or are tastefully molded for our year. and trust me I've looked at everything, many times.
    but you know there's a shit load for chevy's and dodge neons and the ricers.

    I'm goin custom baby.


    Thanks man, I'm looking foreward to it as well.

    I've got a 281 spoiler going on.

    Thanks for the comps guys.
    68mustang, I got this stuff from ABCexclusive, but I had to call and talk the the dumb people.
    man there's so many GAY body kits!


    If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.

    True, True.

    NP, glad to hear it.

    did you try that degreaser, that stuff is awsome.
    I use mine every time.
    bugs and brake dust - fear it.
    you dilute it btw. my first time using I didnt dilute it, it worked AWOSME and my eyes were burning.
