Post Berger Panel Done
Well on Tuesday I was able to pick up the berger panel from Darrins shop, Thanks to Mark and Darrin for this. Decided to attempt to paint it myself...Started with sanding down the gloss paint then doing a couple layers of primer...

I let it sit for about 1/2 hour, sanded any imperfections, then went with Semi-Gloss (Satin) Black paint...

Finished Panel on the car with Mirror finish inserts...

Yes that is a gmmg catback...got it when vengance racing took over selling the catbacks from gmmg. I absolutly love the sound....with my headers, 3" catted y to the gmmg...absolute screamer above 2500rpm. And what i love most is its actually tame between 500 and 2000rpm, quieter than my old flowmaster so i can cruise by cops easier :lol:
