Also was able to install the two rear bumpers, the license plate light, the rear lower valence, the license plate housing and license plate. That concludes assembling the rear of the car.
The car is suppose to go over to Auto XTC this afternoon when I get out of work so they can install the carpets, but after weeks and weeks of dry weather, it looks like heavy rain may come in this afternoon. Just my luck! If it does, the move will have to wait, as the car does not have windows yet, not that I intend to ever take it out in the rain. It may come home in the rain, but if it's raining at home, that's where it stays! There is always tomorrow.
Next will come installing the front grill. I may drive it a while before I decide to install the front bumpers. Really like the looks of the car without them. Then I can start on assembling all the door windows and parts, then put on the door panels. Sure is moving along now that paint is done. I had my wife lock up all the guns in the house in case I put the first scratch on it, just to be safe!!!
I will try to take some photos before moving it to Auto XTC, as right now it is under a ton of moving blankets and bubble wrap!
