As you all know, I hit a deer a while back. I went on vacation this past week and thought it a perfect time to get things fixed. So, to the shop my car went. Well, got it back from the shop yesterday and I'm loving my car once again. I swapped in 01-02 headlights instead of my broken (and before that, weathered and ugly) 99-00 lights using a little elbow grease and the help of a friends grinder. At the shop I took the opportunity of the down time to get some other work done. Here's the list...

-Fixed dent in hood and respray
-Front bumper and WW lip filled and resprayed
-No-limit grill w/mesh painted and installed
-Taillight covers (courtesy of Cue) painted and installed
-Brake calipers painted
-Dash painted

With the HID replacement bulb (I had one blow thanks to the accident I believe) my car should look darn near brand new (the front else already does). I will have pictures of it ASAP (I am going to try as soon as I get home). Of course, with the fresh paint, I have to wait to give my car a full detail and wax for the 2 weeks or so just to make sure I don't mess anything up. Of course, in 2 weeks I'm going to have to claybar the darn bugs off... blah. Anyways, my car is coming together between all the new work and the LED swap along with some other things I have in progress. You'll have to wait for that though.

Here are the pictures... and yes Cue, that cup of coffee was a steep price to pay, but I think I made the right trade :rofl:

So, here are some pictures of the deer damage followed by some pictures of the present state. Before you make any comments, I know the vinyl doesn't look right, but the piece on the front bumper and ww lip had to come off for respray, so I am going to take off the black stripe and either have it remade or just leave it depending on whether I like it without it or not...

Car looks hot man. How long did it take to do the interior and what kind of paint did you use?

I had the shop paint it for me. He smoothed it down and painted it. I can't imagine it took any longer than any other car parts. All that's left to paint now are teh A. B, and C pillars, the overhead console, and the 3 trim pieces on the hatch. After that just some interior stuff to work out. Thanks for the compliment though.

Well, they ARE a little different just because they are freshly painted, but, the rest of my car hasn't been waxed since before last winter, so once the waxing is done, they will match almost perfectly. I just have to wait for the paint to finish curing. Thanks though.

you havn't seen that design before because it's a custom design ;) glad you like it though. It's a love it or hate it design. I love the look, but others feel it's just too much. Tony from Empire designed it for me from my ideas, and since he's the man, came out with exactly what I wanted.
