Yeah, I am just so jealous, I need to get my corolla painted lol.
BTW you should totally make some sort of DIY post on that interior work you did. Looks like it turned out great, hope it holds up for you.

so I picked the 86 up last night and was stunned by the paint, the color is exactly what I had hoped for, very happy with the outcome. the pics don't do it justice, but heres a few anyways. re-assembly starts Saturday.

got to work last night on the back end, that's about 75% done. love the way the sprinter tails look with the new center garnish, cant wait to put the Live Sports TRD replica wing on today. started the rear quarter windows, after rummaging thru 3 sets of clips, I was able to make one good one with no broken tabs. then it was time to put the adhesive on, and it was dried up, so ill be getting more today. drivers door is 95% done, looks great I think with the carbon rain visor. tonights agenda is to put back window in and finish up the hatch, then install the rear quarters, and then attempt to finish the doors(picking up the oem door lock cylinder pads from the dealer today).

had another 3+ hours to hammer **** out last night, this is going by quickly!
started on the rear quarter windows, sealed them up with 3M windo-weld and used non-brocken clips.
Image

all little bits and pieces on hatch and doors were taken apart and cleaned thoroughly and some painted.
Image
Image

then the trim was put on after some drying time. doors are also back together and complete sans the interior door panels.
Image

then the back glass and wing were installed along with the rest of the hatch parts. just need to seal the rivets that go inside the car, and put wiper motor in.

little more done, with a problem encountered. put the headlights back in, lined everything up, but the motors and lights don't work. ran thru all the connections & fuses, all looks ok. need to bring my multi-meter up and diagnose the problem. what a pita hand cranking them up and down to line it all up.
Image

then I put the welting(trim) on the sideskirts. its a great fit, from a late 70's Camaro/trans-am. bought 15', left with about 2'. only comes in this light silver color, at least that's all I found.

Thank you, even closer after tonight. Pics to follow tomorrow, im beat. Side skirts on, interior side panels on, rear wiper, antenna, some hood trim, and wheels done. Also took a ride around the block. Lost some sockets that were in the trunk...no plugs in spare tire well, but the bag of screws on the front managed to stay
