She's back, and better than before!

After my little mishap a couple of weeks ago.....




I finally just drove the old DD Boxster down the turnpike again. Felt good! Looks great! They did a fantastic job on it! Cost me a week's wages, but I have no one to kick but myself. I learned a lesson about allowing myself to be distracted while driving. Happy to have her back on the road.

May be a few dents in the fender, but there's no more road rash.

Thank you very much guys!
LOL, no previous damage was repaired as I was trying to keep cost to a minimum and I plan on just replacing the fenders when I can scare up some clean factory silver examples at a decent price. This thing was full of dents and dings when I bought it.
Really, the entire headlight assemblies need replacement sometime in the near future as well. They're pretty faded. But then, it wouldn't be a beater without these attributes.

Come to think of it, the old hood had a foot long crease, hail dings, and scratches in it, so I guess that previous damage did get repaired!

Looks good.Might be a good time to go in for an alignment.
And maybe check online for some Pre cut clear film protection if not too expensive. just need to take your time when applying and use lots of liquid. I had on my hood before it was repainted and its the absolute best thing you can do for the hood And front bumper. It will stay looking new for years. Without the film the chips started appearing within weeks.
