... with many, many thanks to marshall lum of SE and jay over at JSpec Kustoms:

2. remove both doors and realign hinges
3. shave/sand down door and file the side skirts to clear
4. remold, reshape side skirts where it had cracked
5. re-fiberglass and cracks and brittle pieces of the kit
6. reshape, recut fender flares
7. mold fender flares to fit shape of the body
8. tap holes and drill flares on the body
9. trim off excess fender, grind down metal sharp edges
10. 2010-2011 safety check by none other than toddo808 fucccckah you da man!!!!

and off the pics:

1. mold/shave sliding door handles
2. remove sliding door rail
3. mold in 2004 TSX fogs, wire up H3 ion-yellow HIDs
4. sand down and install fabulous duckbill spoiler
5. mold in 98-00 LS400 front grille
6. mold in 2008 range rover side vents
7. install 2010 toyota FJ cruiser side mirrors, retrofit LED fogs in sidemarkers
8. jdm kouki 1999 taillamps + jdm bezel
9. jdm ESTIMA emblem (which i got in japan)

here's from today:

after 3 weeks in the shop...the side windows have all been pulled -- the sliding door is no more, the sliding guide/rail is gone, the outline of the sliding door has been welded shut and molded, the handles shaved and we've counted over 23 dings and dents on the passenger side alone... the fender wells have also been professionally cut and edges trimmed to allow for more aggressive wheel/tire fitment and up next is the primer and paint. the color is a single-stage BLACK with triple-stage clear on the lower panels to protect against rock chips and road debris at high-speeds, we'll see:
