MI New Member/Rust Removal

Whats up guys! My first post is a fun one. Finally got to start the rust out on my 8! Started by grinding the old rust out, fiberglass(where needed), Bondo and spot filler. The whole car is getting dipped Balloon White after completion. And the wheels are getting dipped a granite metallic. I am just going to start off with a few pictures with some light captions. Once it is finished and i can post on the DIY thread I will go more in depth!



This is my 8 before I started. I wish I had a photo that better showed the condition. Sorry



This is the worst of the rust after it was grounded out. We used a dremel for most of this work



Driver side, also where the rust hole was. I used a combo of Fiberglass, Bondo, and Spot Puddy.



Same thing on the passenger side, a lot less rust over here.



Primer on the driver side



Same for the passenger side



My aero flares..but not the standard install. I decided to fiberglass everything in. Why not!?






Made a great decision going with fiberglass!



This is a bumper lip I ordered. Love the added style. Do you think I bolted it?? Nah



Cause fiberglass looks better



Worked on the engine cover



Magnaflow exhaust.

Misc....
