well I finally got her back from paint, since she had a blue hood, driver's fender and bumper. Also the front of driver's door was crunched. Not the best mudding job in the world, but for what i paid, i can't complain at all ($200) I think it was never a show quality car and it still isn't, but She'll still turn a few heads rolling down the street. Also, I got my SS rims on (thanks, GoldSSWagon) what do you guys think?

Right after accident:


The body work begins:


This morning:

Did you get the rims with some spare cash left over from the insurance? Or the painter threw it in 'cos you're a nice guy? :D

no, there was no insurance, the accident was my fault, I got the rims from GoldSSwagon on the forum with some student loan money, plus i sold some parts from the parts car that we used to fix the JewRyde. I got a awesome deal on them though ;)

Are those custom made "Caprice Classic" rear quarter emblems? or you buy them somewhere?

I love them!
