Talking Pictures of new paint job with Litronics :-)

Finally got the pictures off the camera and uploaded into my photobucket account.
Its like a whole new and different car, I recommend Y&S autobody to anyone, they placed my car in a 200 degree oven to cure the paint and damn it looks like how it would look fresh out the Factory in Germany. Needless to say I am delighted! Maybe in a year Ill get them to repaint from the Doors - Back since they only did Front Fenders, Hood and Bumper.


This first picture is just a "Before" picture so show what the Boxster looked like before the headlights were stolen and the bumper, hood and fenders were scratched....


Now the Afters!

Looks great! Now you have to get out your soldering iron and hack that yellow lense out of there.

Did they steal the amber corners or do you buy those?

They were stolen so these were free because of insurance.

Nah, i like the little bit of amber in there, as you can tell by now, to admire the 2003 factory look over a highly modded boxster front end. Ill try to get the 2003 bumper in the near future.

Dude if that's the case keep an eye out on eBay. There is a seller under the name 'eurowheelsusa' or something similar to that. They sell the same wheels as Wheel Dynamics except $200 less + colored center caps. They also provide good customer service,that's a plus.

That's a steal!

I think if I had it to do over again that's what I would put on my car. They were in my top three wheel choices, but Ellen liked the TSWs best. Now, the Carrera Classics even come in 19s. Best of both worlds!

Yo Blink! When are you going to post more pics of your car?
