      Got it outside for the first time since color sanding. Still have a bunch of adjustments to do to the front end.

        I'm afraid we can't be friends anymore.

          Got the headlight buckets in. It's not that fun of a job.

              I wouldn’t live in a HOA for all the tea in China. I managed them for 10 years and despise them.

              And the car is garaged.

                Have you considered making some modifications?

                Maybe a pickup truck?

                Or a nice station wagon?

                  You guys are friggin clueless. I want to LEARN how to do this crap. You LEARN by doing it yourself. This paint job is going to turn out fine and I'm going to invite you turds over to rub your noses right into the hood.

                  I didn't take on this 3-year restoration to sub the car out to a bunch of people. I want to learn it myself.

                  I have a decent air compressor being delivered tomorrow.

                          I ordered new tires online. When they get delivered, I'll take them across the street to get mounted and save $300 on their quoted prices.

                            It's obvious how you really feel.

                              Made a lot of progress today. Have color sanded over half of the car. Wet sand with multiple grits, then rubbing compound, then polishing compound, then swirl remover, etc. Takes hours. It also looks amazing.

                              I installed the lights and molding on the rear bumper cover and am in the process of bolting it back on....it's starting to look like a real car again.

                                  Some of those people aren't just messing around. They are simply asshats.

                                    Hoohahahahaaa!!!

                                    Yo, one time, a blind boy felt my momma's face. He asked why was there a pizza on that camel's ass!

                                    My momma so ugly, you can sex her any way and it's always doggy style!

                                    This is Silky Johnston son. I hate everybody, and I hate my momma the most. I had that old one-legged ho on the stroll making me money before I turned 10.

                                    You can sex her if you want, but either you pay Silky or she pay Silky. Either way, Silky get paid!

                                    Footlong? Hoohawhahaha. Alright "brotha". Whatever you say.

                                      My stepdaughter had a baby at 18, giving me a stepgrandson at age 38. Far from ideal, but he's been a blessing and being around him since his birth has made me a better man. I have no children of my own.

                                          That's a stunningly good looking C4. Those can't be factory coils, though. The car looks like it's ready to go mudding at that height.

                                          What made you decide on the more modern exhaust tips?
