normally i'd agree, but if the whole car is being painted afterwards who cares? i'm more concerned about the interior, bondo dust doesn't come out of leather easily

LOL BTW the picture of the skirt on the pass side is a little magivering I did custom... I got a side from a "i" and I have an "Li" so I cut it in half got a piece of sheet metal sunk the rivets and cut a piece from my damaged one, lined it up and bada bing bada boom here we go Li side skirt... I do know that's not the "right way" yes I am planning to get a side skirt in the future and I know I'm gunna hate that it doesn't look perfect but for now it'll do... It helps when the fam biz is an Auto Body Shop... And yes no parts on the car lol but meh the whole thing is getting painted

Just saying... I actually just took the chrome off the min before I took the pic and I was in the stage of stripping the parts off of it... If i scratched the paint or dinged the roof it's in the shop for a reason lol to get body work done to it so whats the harm of a bit of spot putty and i didn't want to put them somewhere to get damaged or misshaped or bent till I found a perfectly safe spot away from grubby hands

Nice update!

When will it be all put back together?

Hopefully by Tuesday... Then I'm taking it to Parkview for service, Oil change and maybe they can help me with my little latch problem on my trunk... The thing looks like glass... I had more pics of it in the booth but my phone got stolen from my wholesale last week. So pissed
