    Geronimo's "touch up" work

    After almost 30 years and an unfortunate run in with heaved pavement, Geronimo had lost his front airdam, and suffered from some road scars. In April, I finally obtained a "new" airdam to replace the shattered one, and the paintwork has begun. Here is the airdam and front bumper in paint:Click image for larger version.

    This is all done by the original painter, Trkdesigner. Many hours went into resurrecting the airdam, as it was a Hottops piece and was made poorly, as most of their fiberglass was. It was pretty beat up as well. More pics to come of the "touch up" work!

    Whoa. That is legit 'resto' work. So is this just the start of Geronimo's restoration and how far are you going?

    The airdam, bumper, and bumper ends, and the back of the passenger front fender and lower half of the passenger door. Also some chips on the back of the cab and around the right rear wheel well. More pics to come...

    the paint colors and design was my buddy's idea - so was the sticker he gave me for under the hood - "NOTICE - Insanity has replaced reason in the design and construction of this vehicle"
