My interior isn’t too bad, mainly the lt side of the seat back on the drivers seat and now the headliner, but the headliner really does look worse with it out of the car. It’s really not the bad. I guess it’ll never end, right?

So I know that these are hard to see but there is probably 30 pea sized dents, with a couple of bigger ones. We are going to tackle these tomorrow after work. Then I can get the final prep and blocking done, get the roof prepped and the plan is to paint the vehicle sometime next week.

So the painter and I were supposed to get the PDR work done on my roof last night. At the end of the day yesterday he said he had to run home and would be back at the shop to help me do it around 6 or so. So, while I was waiting for him to come back, I got the final fitment done on my hood and fenders and just tinkered around with the car while I was waiting. I texted him around 7 to see where he was at and no response. I hung around until 730, no text back, no painter so I left, kinda bummed. I came in this morning and he had come in at some paint last night and finished it. What a guy! The roof looks awesome! Looks like there are a couple dents he couldn’t get to with the tools so I’ll have a little bit of bodywork to do up there. Mainly on the edges above the doors. So tonight I’ll finish up those small dents with a little bit of bodywork. Looks like Im buying breakfast! Now, I can continue!!

I’ll probably pick up a latch at some point soon. There’s a little play in mine that I’m not liking that much.

I went to work this morning and got the roof and hatch stripped. I took care of the little dents that weren’t accessible with PDR tools. There were about 10 small dents that needed some clean up. The paint shop dudes were there doing a side job so i asked the painter if he could prime my car and he said pull it in. I taped it up for him and he got it primed.

I also polished and repainted my 5.0 emblems, what do you guys think? The red was a kind of a pain. I ended up using some old red caliper paint I had laying around. Should I just spend the $13 and buy some new Chinese emblems? Or should I run my original to the car emblems?
