Buffed out Paint, Installed Trim, and More

Lot of little stuff today, I finished welding the exhaust up so the car is now nice and quiet. I then buffed out the paint and put a coat of wax on it. I didn't have any turtle wax so I ended up putting some…

Rear Inner Fenders Replaced and Cut Springs

The Inner fenders were a pain to get in without hurting the paint but they are both finally in. I bent them anywhere that they were getting close to the tire. There is plenty of room on the back end to clear even bigger tires.
