    Looking good. I can't wait until I can get my dart painted. What are the specs on the 360? Make sure you post pics once you get it back from the paint shop.

    Dude awesome project. Don't take offense, but you are going to remove the door handles and antenna before paint - aren't you? Really makes the job perfect - you're at the point where everything else is off - go for it.

    Can't wait to see the finished pictures - same color, or ? ? ?

    OK, you're half way there now, convince yourself that the door handles need to come off. Then take your time and if the "clipy-doos" break I'll help you find them. You'll thank me afterwards. I'm certain your painter is an excellent artist - give him a free and clear pallet to work with. It's unfortunate the small areas where the grab part of the handles block the metal on the door, and the metal under the handles, will come back and bite you in a few years.

    "You've come this far Man, do it" :-D

    Dig the white / blue scheme.=P~
