Part Sourcing

The first thing I did after getting the hatchback home was a walk-around. I pretty much had an idea of what I was going to modify, but I had no clue what I was going to find once I started disassembling it. This is where I learned the difference between the “want list” and the “reality list”.

SEM Exterior Trim Paint

I decided to restore the exterior trim instead of replacing it because it was faded, but not damaged beyond repair. I also wanted to get my hands on a few of SEM’s products and this would be the perfect opportunity to see how well SEM’s Trim Black performs.

Overthinking is something I often do and I found myself staring at the car trying to figure out what to do first, then I realized there’s no blueprint to this.

First Things First

My motives with this blog are simply to document my projects and pass on what I learn to anyone who takes the time to read about them. The store that may or may not be active on this blog is a result of requests I’ve received for certain items I’ve fabricated or designed for my projects.
