did some traveling and used that opportunity to leave my car in the garage to have this done.
What's your plan with your mirrors?
De-"Explorer" the mirrors--just like we've done on the rear trim. I did the filling and smoothing work on rear lamp shield trim a month ago and have it sitting and waiting.
I got an extra pair of OEM mirrors for $30.00 (from a totaled Ex) and disassembled those (which was a PITA). Those are waiting as well.
After the body work on the rear, everything (body, rear shield, and mirror) will be painted all in one "session."
Now, what in the heck am I gonna do with these black Ford badges I spent a hefty coin on??
Cant wait to see the turnout of your project as for the badges, you could probably sell them on ebay.
Somebody answer me this. Once you have done all this debadging and painting, what happens when you go to sell the car? I would think it would certainly devalue the vehicle. Unless there is a small contingent of folks wanting something like this, I think most folks would shy away from a purchase like this.
I'm thinking resale or trade-in value.
How did you get the eyeliner trim around the headlights?
What did you use to tint the taillights?
Complete debadging & smoothing of front grill and back... very nicely done.
Mind me asking what that cost to do? I have no clue what body work like that runs.
