Week 4: (October 24th 1998)
I am concentrating on the exterior of the car this week, I have removed all of the black molding as well as all of the exterior lights and rubber. I can now tell that this car has been repainted.... very poorly. There is overspray on the molding as well as the finishing caps by the door. The chrome headlight covers are basically ruined with blue paint as are the hood latches. At least the bumpers were clean when I took them off. The original paint must not have been treated correctly when the car was newly painted. It is just bubbling and peeling off. It definately looks as is I am going to have to grit blast the car down to the metal and repaint from scratch.
