Default Laguna Seca Bugeye, now with more Black chrome

Well I think this is my first time to post in the Members Gallery, but after 2.5 years of owning my psm 02 wrx I decided it was time to paint it. Lucklly my friend just finished his 2 year degree is body work, this is his first color change, but far from his first paint job, he also did all the body work.

how she started





after about 2 years we decided to start on the body work


did some custom work on the bumper







then the body work started

haha no problem man, its actually 04 Bmw M3 Laguna Seca blue pictures really don't do it justice, and it will look lighter in the sun, all those are in the paint booth with florescent lights . in all with all the body parts labor and paint ( all PPG top of the line material ) I will have 2250-2500 in the car, more than i expected but its over a time period of about 6 months. All I got to say is i love it, and I am very great full to Adam my painted and body man for all the time he has put into it. Now maybe I can park in the cool section at the car meets. I will try to get pictures Monday right after its been sprayed, and then Wednesday after its all done

Well I was going to, but then to have radio I had to get one of those tacky antennas you have to stick in your window and I have an autodimming mirrors so it would not be in the middle, so I will just leave mine down
