well she was (is) a lil rough, 151k has taken its toll on the gtp... primarily rust free everywhere too- a shitton of miles- and lots of sentimental value to me = getting repainted.

all black again- insides of front and rear bumpers are going to be flat black tho too.

torn down a lil bit:










Ill update it as stuff happens. excited to get her back all pretty.

Oh man I remember doing the spacer mod to my spoiler. Pretty sure there was a whole squirrel under there.

Looking forward to seeing the progress :bigthumb:

Damn. Make sure you document the process well so people can understand what kinda work goes into a full repaint. I take it you are going to keep the GTP for a bit. :dunno:

Awesome!

I'd love to have the Mustang repainted, but then I'd be paranoid all over again. If it gets another chip, now I'm like 'Oh well, the paint is 10+ years old.'
