well in the last 2 weeks i have stripped it all and ready for respray .as my family are all in the car bussiness i can get it sprayed and all i have to do is pay for the paint so it will only cost me about 600 for the paint it was goin to be a full respray in and out with the vy-vz commodore impulse matalic blue but i dont rele wanna drop the engine so im gunna do it a pearl white im doin around the door jams and every where just like that but just not goin to take out the engine so its all ready for respray nilly now its getting undercoated this sunday and then about 2 weeks after that the pearl will be done then cleared so i cant wait ill get sum pics up of it pulled apart 2morro but heres a couple as wen i got it...
