And done with the primer, rust is all dealt with and it's ready to be painted black, pretty good for a brush and $16 of paint

The fiberglass one? Previous owner made that a while back and put the stock one back on to daily drive, I don't have it

Did some more work to it, spaced the trunk to sit flush and got a the last piece for the back, looks so much better now

Also installed some hood pins, the hood was a pain to open before but now it's smooth, the installation wasn't too bad, didn't have to drill the body at all, only the hood

Annnnd it's black
It's not done but the first coat is on and it looks a lot better, the black looks nice with the black seat I have for it, I want to get some floor mats, and hopefully address the infamous firewall water leak

Slowly making progress, the car is practically as good as it's going to get without spending a lot of $$$ on parts because there's such little aftermarket support for these cars, so I've just been cleaning it up and making it my own
I got some 1.5" hub centric spacers because the gap with the fender flares was killing me, they fit great and made a huge difference

The fitment is perfect
I also painted the fender flares white, I love the new look

Haven't made an update in a while since I've just been doing things to make the car better
I bought the car and it had some problems, nothing major, but as my current DD they need to be addressed
it has a really bad balljoint, I ended up just ordering a whole control arm with the balljoint
After that, it'll need an alignment (it seems to have a lot of positive camber and a lot of toe as is)
High beams don't work lol, the usual beretta firewall leak, luckily no interior will help with that repair
He replaced the temp gauge sensor before I bought it, but it still seems to be running really rich, on top of that it has the usual SES light over 50 mph, and really inaccurate oil pressure
I also want to address the ABS light and now (even with the proper amount of oil) low oil light
Also the parking brake does nothing, I don't mind too much as I haven't had a car that's had a working one but I would like to get that fixed
There's a nice hole in the roof from an antenna that used to be on the car
Also a crack in the door, the drivers door is dented and on the inside near where the seat belt is mounted, it's cracked , I'm looking for a nice door with manual windows ATM
Other than those things it's a mint car, I want to focus on getting the little odd ends fixed then do some more performance mods, I might be keeping a lot of what I'm doing secret till Beretta fest 2018 which is close enough for me to attend :)
