Pictures of my car in the bodyshop

Home  \  Off Topic  \  Pictures of my car in the bodyshop

I figured you all would like to see my car in it's least finest hour, what with primer and filler covering almost all of it. But here it is- it is still in the bodyshop until tuesday (it's been there since last saturday), hopefully they'll get it out on time. It was supposed to be ready Friday or before. I suppose it's no big deal- at least they're doing a good job. So hurr it is:

Phew I thought you were going to rice up your civic. What clour are you going to have it?

No- I had considered a body kit, but I can't afford one that actually looks good. All the inexpensive ones are quite ricey, and there is simply too much risk involved, what with cracking, warping, and not even fitting in the first place.
I am having it repainted black. With a new hood, new front right wheel quarter panel, and total resanding, undenting, and paint, it totalled to just shy of $1560. Bring on the sizzle.

You've never heard this place called the "dirty dirty" before?

Haha, I was just messin with you. I know a lot of people call the south "dirty-dirty". It was a play on words.

Finally, last thursday, I got my car back. I've taken a few pictures of it, although they don't really do the car justice. These pictures don't really portray the silky wet look it has. But in any case, they are at:

I appreciate the compliments, yall. This car means a lot to me, and I'm hoping to make it as nice as possible with what monetary resources I have. I already owe my dad $3000 for the car and paint, and I'm looking at another $1000 for... stuff. I wanted your all's opinions about what's next- Should I get headlight covers, this nifty 3-piece spoiler I found at Extreme Dimensions (It looks like an Eclipse GST spoiler only not nearly as tall), taillights, or new wheels? The rents probably won't let me get anything until I get the car and paint payed for- they say "I need to pay for what I've got now."

I'm thining about the spoiler or taillights for Christmas. But then again, I want a membership at the Louisville Athletic Club, too. So I don't know. I'd like to have more money, but who wouldn't.

This is why Im getting a second job. :thumbs:

Anywho, as for the headlight covers, the blackout ones like I had? Go for those and paint the inside of them. That way, no light can get through (Since it is a VERY bad idea to have them on at night). You could still see the headlight through mine in the day, so I was going to paint them. But the accident took that oppourtunity away. PLus they're only about 40 bucks for a pair. And they look Smexay on a black car.

On a completely different note, I must say. Your little dancing animation people keep perfect beat with "What are you Waiting For?" by Gwen Stefani. It's mesmorizing.

haha, so they do..
