Unemployed and overjoyed!

Wow it's been a long time since I last worked on this! I recently had some weird things happen that have left me temporarily without a job, so I've got a bit of time on my hands.

First order of business is to figure out where I'm at. Here I've got all the parts laid out. (Note the new computer!)

Nothing like a good ol' test fit to get your day started

Always painting

It's all coming back, it's coming back to me now. I've got to file down this putty...

Done, time to prime

After some spray painting, I thought that chroming the exhaust headers would be a nice, fun way to get back into the swing of things.

We'll be applying Chrome Bare Metal Foil

Partially completed

Here I'm cutting the foil, doesn't need to be too precise

Lift up the edge with the knife blade and position with tweezers

Gently use the tweezers to smooth out the foil

And here we have it

Tomorrow I'll probably be applying lots of carbon fiber decals.

Total: 81.5 h
