Fenders:

Tomorrow they start removing the old paint and offcoarse there will be pics!!

Ok, so, works are moving fast:

The car:







All the parts that have to be repainted:





The OEM CSL trunk lid modified for the OEM rearview camera and button and the toolkit:





And, last but not least, the power bulge welded on, ready to be finished and painted:
