Finished the body & paint work this weekend. Turned out OK - not exactly pro... somewhere around (slightly above?) "used car lot" quality.

Even got the polishing compound and wax out - sure cleaned up nicely. Didn't polish/wax the roof though - gotta save some for Ivan. Anyway, it looks quite respectable for a $74 car! I'll post pics once the racing stripes are on. Not sure if I'll have that done for next weekend or not - we have to make our tow bar this week.
