The fixing of an old Kia (photo heavy)

Often though of as pointless by many, but they don't own one, so to hell with them! Lol

I've been a busy boy!

This was the work of a ford utility truck backing into me. It was about 4 inches deep at one point...

Not bad for $115 dollars in supplies...

Word to the wise, don't let your $30 can of color match spray paint sit for 2 years.

It took 3 hours of rubbing and polishing compounds to get it to blend. Not to mention the waxings... LOL

Greetings drx350,

Nice job on the repair - wish I had those auto body skills.. ( It would've looked like a giant lump of filler with paint. ) :D

Your Sporty is looking good ! :cool:

Congrats !

Thanks, it's far from perfect, but it's a lot better than it was.

Yeah, you tend to get pretty good at auto body when you own crappy old cars your whole life... LOL
