It is definitely coming together. What protection are you planning for the front face?

There will be a sheet-metal piece along the bottom 8" or so that was removed to cap the frame rails.
It will go from fender edge to the other fender edge.
There will be black Rhinolining or similar on the the sheet-metal piece, as well as the off white plastic piece above that.
I'm going to ask Jay about some putting on some clear chip guard on the front of the area he extensively reworked that will be blue.

It doesn't matter at all to me, but a reminder that day is Father's Day.
I am available all day, but anytime in the morning would be great!

@cammerjeff will be the first to find out how it pulls behind a Solstice.

I can believe it weighs that much it does have 3 Solstice Wheels & Tires mounted on it! I will post here how it tows empty, and loaded.

Thanks John I was thinking about 10:00 am. PM or text me your address so I can figure out how long a 1 way trip it will be. I am guessing about 2.5 hours.

Updated with more pictures.

Wet sand and buff is done for now, and bumper cover is installed.
Jay says after the trip to bring it back for one more round of buffing, as the paint is still a bit soft.

Paint work is done, Jay still has to make a couple of trim pieces, and clean everything up.
I'm picking up Saturday morning.
