    Yep, Did'nt want to put a 10k dollar paint on a 5k dollar wagon. Took 20-30 hours to install, $450-$500 in material and it's guaranteed from 3M for 5 years. No body shop down time, No disassembly, No over spray, No DA sand marks on glass and trim, Just a removable colors. That look and feel like paint.

    I know the feeling, mine theoretically shouldn't be here. The front clip, doors, and half of a quater panel had all been replaced when I got it back in the '80s. Probably pulled from a junkyard for use as a drag car, evidence being holes cut in the frame for ladder bars. I also had to replace floor pans, but I wouldn't trade her for a cherry, we've been through too much together over the years. Ah, first love! Ain't it grand!
