Paint and body modifications. Hopefully there won't be much added to this. ; )
I got my 2003 front bumper cover back from the bodyshop last week. They did a really good job on fixing the FOBARs and resprayed the bumper. I installed a new aftermarket bumper reinforcement from RockAuto and replaced the front bracket that is in front of the A/C condenser, which I got from Swedevil.

I dropped the 03' front off this morning. It is going to be reconditioned and then painted. I will post pictures of it when it is complete.

I couldn't wait to install it this weekend so I went ahead and installed it that night. There were a lot of people who know the car stopping and asking if I was in a wreck since the front was off.

All I had to do is buy the paint. I did the sanding on it. He prepped the bumper with primer and putty to fill the small pinholes. He wet sanded it for almost a day and then painted it that night. Sadly, the paint work wasn't what I thought it would be. I could see scratches in the primer, and the base coat/clear coat wasn't
