A+ job on smoothing out that corner. Thats one of the hardest spots the get rite. But you did a great job feathering it all out.
thanks... My second time with body filler... Im takinh my time as i want it to look at lease semi clean

So far with what im seeing, it should turn out very nice. One word of advice though if you ever plan on running wide low offset wheels where youll have to roll and pull. Be very very careful. With all that body filler in the body lines, it will spit it all out and crack the shit out of the work youve done.

ok not much has happened as i been busy with work and moving... the only things that been done from the last up dates are finishing the fenders to primer stage, sanding the front pignose bumper and sanding passenger side door... i have about 30mins to a couple hrs that i work on it about 1-3 times a week so its gonna be slow as ive been doing it all by myself... my friends them dont enjoy working on cars like i do so it doesnt help

here are some pictures but once again i dont have much of the process as i get carried away in the time i have working on it and forget to snap some






i also tried to fix the driver side qp but gave up and am still looking for a qp to replace it



i guess someone saw my awesome project and wanted to buy it... they left there card so i called them back just to see whats up... LOL


random picture of my diff getting welded awhile back i forgot to post up

please dont mind the lighter color primer on the headlight covers and driver side as it all is going to be redone and sprayed with automotive paint instead of walmart spray cans lol... also i think everything looks pretty good so far but what do i know, im a noob still in the learning process so everything ive done so far looks good to me... btw can u tell the front fenders has had there body lines filled just by looking at it?? to me it seems like i just see where the body curves

I've seen that sunrise grille before somewhere. Do you still have the 02 SE-R, or did you sell it?

That would make sense then as I am fairly certain I saw that grille on a wrecked golden orange colored SE-R here in GB at the pick and pull yard. I remember sitting in the car and wondering if the seats would swap into my S13.
