Weekend sanding down the side and front ss kit...
oh my got was it beaten up had to take most of the paint off, the guy who i bought it off painted it white with no sand down and primer before he did....
Took a long time to clean up.. I ran out of paint for the side skirts but got the front painted gonna get more and use the compressor for them and the doors + handles

Ill put some pics of front bumper later, going to put it on tonight :D
