    Ahh, love me some white 1st gens. You know what I always say "If it ain't white, it ain't right."

    But your hood is still too high, looks goofy

    just so yall know there is a reason for that piece sitting out 2 inches

    [​IMG]

    the door handle sits flush with the top of the door now

    [​IMG]

    im not sure about the door handle placement. im stuck between option "A" and option "B". "A" will be easier to do but "B" will look better

    option "A"

    option "B"

    straightened out the dends the best i could the filled them in with bondo, butt load of sanding till straight, then primer, then rustoleum high performance white spray paint, then rolled on 2 coats of rustoleum oil based protective enamel. it didnt come out bad but it would have held up better if i did 4-6 coats and it'd look better if i wet sanded it, i may still go back and do a few more coats and wet-sand it, but it turned out great for only having ~350$ in it

    fourm i got the idea from http://www.meguiarsonline.com/forum...1-My-quot-rustoleum-50-roll-on-paint-job-quot
