Some of you guys might remember this thread… https://gbodyforum.com/threads/80-lemans-tear-down.33025/page-8

Anyway, I still have the car and it finally made it to to the point of no more bare metal. Hoping to have paint on it in the next couple weeks. Then the long process of trying to figure out how to reassemble…😵💫

Alright, I messed up on my color selection. I thought I was going with Dark Sapphire Blue Metallic, but I think I can grow to like Blue Sapphire Metallic…

Looks good
My first “nice” car was an 80 lemans
Almost factory perfect for 1800 bucks in 92 lol
I destroyed it and always feel a pang of regret when I see one

It made it back home! Well, everything but the front bumper. Didn’t have quite enough room to load it without potential damage. I didn’t want to risk it. Now the long process of assembly begins…
