Yeah, I finally took my Rex (chapulin Colorado) to the shop to be painted... It will be a complete paint restoration. I dont have the tools to do it myself so I have to pay someone to do it. The most important thing is that it gets done.
Also, I spoke to the manager to see if he let me sneak in to snap some pics of the during work time and he agreed.

I know you guys probably seen it but here are some pics of it....

Before, when I bought it (clean body, no rust)...

A little after the before with the LUMIRO love into it...

Now, JDM front end conversion...

After paint job...


I also bought a used bumper lip, installed Si stock tail lights, rear disc conv, DA front bakes, re-upholstered the front seats and the engine is squedule to arrive in my appt on the 4th... there are some other stuff done to it and in my appt waiting to be installed, I got a list for it, but I will release it later when it is completly done...here is a pic of my seats, I manage to adquire Si head rest for them...
BEFORE

AFTER

I'll keep this post updated, Might belong to the modification garage but I'm just posting to share with the community my little progress....

Same color as it is right now....My idea was paint it this color
A Little OT ...
This was my BG on my PS3 for the longest time.

I like the Torino red better than the Rio, it looks more upscale IMO.

hey how did you go about restoring those seats?
I met a guy here in Ft Bragg who's friend knows how to work with carpets, and fabrics but never restored seats before, so I challenged him. He did a pretty good job for $100, I helped him out with the head rest. man what a PITA that was.

I think Torino Red is the right choice, it will stand out more than another Rio Red SiR clone.
thats is another reason why I decided to keep like it is and my budget is also kinda low.

Man your really coming along with it. Keep up the good work and remember pics pics pics when it comes back from paint.
yeap, remember when me and my friends were struguling to get it running that day u got those parts?... came out to be the safe switch in the clutch pedal. Like 3 "supose to be" mechanics looked at it and I was right all the time.

But other than that, I got new front and rear S/D rotors, ceramic pads, Skunk2 Pro shocks, and a OEM replacement clutch and fly wheel for the engine on its way here too. A got a cheap set of red strut bars fron ebay (upper, lower front; upper, lower rear), I am hoping to have it ready for N14, working on the barraks parking lot is not helping at all. I already submitted my pass request so it can be approved on time for N14.
