Before and After Accident
#1
Just came across two pictures that happened to be side-by-side and really show how much different the car is after the accident. The body shop did a great job and the exterior is in great shape.

Though I hated the fact I had to wait a year to get my car back for something that was not my fault, I am kind of thankful that it did happen- after all, who doesn't like a free restoration?

BEFORE PIC- The day it came home to me two years before accident

Love the shine it has, they couldn't match the color so I had a couple days home with a bunch of paint samples. Of course it was in the winter and there was no sunny day to bring them outside. So it was basically through my gut that I chose the color.

First let me be the first to congratulate you on stepping out of the "INTRODUCTION" pages and silent lurking to "have a conversation" with us!!!!

Now for the car.....wow they really did give you a free restoration and it looks beautiful. That is one of those colors that just pops with the new paint technology vs the 40 year old process. Congrats again!!!

That's some cool before and after shots. After looks much better and that colour really works on a coupe.

He has all the vices I admire and none of the virtues I despise

Thanks, but I have good ninja skills so I'll be back to silent lurking. I really love forums and when I have time between classes I will pull them up and soak my brain with car stuff.

You really have a sweet ride. Honestly this is one car I can say looks better after an accident than before it. They seemed to do a very good job with your car. That's a rarity, especially if it's insurance/warranty work.

Thanks! I am not crazy for vinyl tops either. That is the original factory top. I was going to have it ripped off, but I have grown attached to it. I think it makes the car stand out more. For some reason I can't picture the car without it.

I don't think you should rip it off seeming it is original to the car but it is all what you want to do to the car it will look great either way, how is the interior ?

They did a real nice job... good color choice. Your paint looked better than mine BEFORE your accident! I'm still digging the vinyl roof.

The interior is all original besides the carpet. The car was in a garage for many years where mice got in. It smelt terrible so replacing the carpet was one of the first things we did.

I need new seat vinyl badly. Both seats have big rips in them. But I don't know if I should just get the vinyl or replace all the foam too. Super expensive.
