Don't think the dents won't happen any more, 'cause they are aluminum after all.
At the nuts point. I just did the seat trims and have been cleaning the paint for literally 2 months. I think I have it as clean and shiny as I can for a D90 that has been out of the garage. It's really starting to look good again. Just waiting on the new rear bench trim and to repair some holes in the dash front switches the PO installed. Finish the SS hardware, install the AC (2 years later) and I should be able to leave it alone! HA- I doubt that.
These and the corner piece are the last of the exterior. Bumper, tire carrier and light bar should be back from PC next week. When I looked at RN they showed the NAS D90 for $129 + shipping- I guess that is the blank. I would assume the paint shop would be able to cut the cage holes based on the old panel correct? I'm not too great at cutting holes, boards, things that involved a saw tend to be measure 5 times and cut 10 times. I haven't taken the fender off, just the flare so I wasn't sure if it was one big hole for the cage or 4 smaller holes just for the bolts.
