So I stripped the Faces down with: 320, wet 600, 1000, and 2000.

Then I buffed, and Polished them.

I have Not cleaned the wheels I have done lol Please do not think thy are cleaned up haha

That is all for now, I am working on the wheels today going to try and get most of it done today, since I am so0o broke I can't buy parts hahaha

So I kinda quit being lazy...
Wheels are done, just need to be put on the car, and cleaned.
Sorry for the ****ty pics, I need a new camera..
Sassy approves!

New lugnuts.

I started cleaning up the interior where it sat all winter. I just stopped driving it one day there was still pop bottles, and food wrappers in there. lol
Put the Spoon wheel on there as well.

So0o.... I picked this up! Pretty pumped about it, don't know a lot about this wheel got some people checking into it. I do know it is very very rare. haha

If I can get my friend Seth to send me some pics of my car they would be up but he is lazy. lol so blame him!!

It was nice finally meeting you dude.

Thanks for all the comments guys!
I will have a pic of the battery this week. I am doing a lot to the car for Import Alliance.

So I took the Tri Y off, and got a stock header for better fitment.

The Tri Y took it rough.

While the header was off I wanted to clean up the motor a little I used Rust- Oleum High Heat paint and painted them engine and trans.
(Sorry the pics suck!)
