Yupp. Same color, just a few emblems and minor things shaved.

I haven't updated this thread in a while. Gotta get to it...

Car was estimated to be ready today. Turns out not to be. Body work is almost done, fenders are getting rolled on Tuesday-ish, and car should be done like Friday next week. Went to look at it, snapped some pictures off it.

I'm truly happy I went with Century Auto Body. If you're in South Florida, check these guys out. They're not pushy like some places, all sales man like. Greg's a cool dude, seems like someone interested in painting and body work becuase he likes cars and likes doing it, not for the money. He really seems like he wants to do what's best (and within budget) for the car, the paint, and long term quality.

Anyways, onto some pictures.

looking good! is there any way you can tuck that muffler a little further in? Doesn't look very OEM sticking out like that, or maybe its just the angle of the photo. Regardless, I love your car, I only wish mine could have turned out as well.

that's actually a pretty clean shop.
one thing i don't like though is the fact that he didnt cover anything.
nice shiny wheels and muffler getting coverred in blocking dust......
$1.00 worth of plastic goes along way in saving cleanup time.
plus,to me it's bad buisness to let a customer see their bright and shinies covered in dust that i created.

the car looks great though,i can't argue with that.
i just wish it had a better looking owner....say....me for example...

The muffler is getting cut off and have like a regular oval-muffler welded on with a shiny tip, or I'll just order a complete exhaust from ebay. Both come out to like $100...

My girlfriend told me there's a small little dent on the rear quarter panel.
I almost cried when she said that.
