    I like it way better like this. Looked good before but I think all your hard work has paid off. The other side benefit to all this sanding and work is sanding off your finger prints. A good time to commit a crime. J/K.

    Just completed a bumper to bumper detailing. It was hard to remove all the primer dust from sanding.

    Used Jasco on the headlight trim to remove the black paint, then some steel wool to bring out the chrome.

    With a couple hours of disassembly and masking you would be ready for paint. :)

    And soon you will have some rust on those bare spots to go along with your paint. (y)

    I started this thread 3 years ago today. Looking back, my only regret is changing my dash (since I've taken the exterior repaint down to the original color). :(
