Nice job, Bill.
It's good to see you making some progress. That paint looks to have good body to it.
Btw, what did you decide to use for a 3rd brake light?

Haven't made it to a junkyard yet. Been so busy with life. I hardly found the time to clean these panels and paint them.

Turns out that paint on the plastic panels doesn't stick well, It scratches very easy. And I used adhesion promoter too


how did you prep the surface?

I forget what grit i used but i sanded it a good amount. Cleaned with lacquer thinner most likely. Then put a few coats of promotion adhesive on. Im kinda bummed out that it wasnt really a dye. Its just spray paint
