My 88 Calais

Hey guys, i have had this car for a little while now, but i have come to the conclusion that i need to start on making it how i want it. I have majority of the brands of parts that i want in mind, but i would be more than appreciative if anybody had any advice on anything.

I took these pictures today, had a good day for it, so i thought, why not?





Im going to start with the tint next week, then back and side venetians. Ill update this as i go.

looks real tidy mate, only thing i would say is get the black at the bottom of the bumpers and skirts repainted, aswell as the rear boot mouldings.

Cheers mate, yeah paint will be happening this weekend (Monday, Tuesday is my weekend haha) I plan on doing the bumpers and the skirts, then ill get onto around the windows. Iv just been thinking about buying new boot moulds, they arnt all that expensive, or do you think im just better off with some paint? Iv got new taillights in the mail as we speak, so new moulds could be the go?

gd stuff, if the moulds arent cracked then theres no reason to get new ones, put a lick of paint on them and they'l come up like new
