    Rear valance needed also some work, there was hit probably same time when rear bumper got one. The valance is very thick sheet metal and it was twisted and bendy so it needed serious hammering but after a few hours it fits just fine with NOS bumper. Bumper is from @detmatt (..thanks again!)...

    Because I really don't know what will be the final body color, this is why I ended basic black (semi mat) all over and underside will have another layer in semi gloss dark gray metallic. Yes I know, that's not a original style but I'm not a fan of original body color...

    Noxudol spraying done! Two medium heavy coats all over except cabin floors ones. It takes almost 55 liters!!! Sounds like it is very effective stuff, if you tap panel it sounds like old wooden toolbox filled with wool sox!! Surface is little rough but it was very difficult to spray even layer...
