Default 85 Euro "aesthetic resuscitation" by Austin aka KilnRed

i had the fine opportunity of meeting Austin Embry today while dropping off my 85 euro to get the proper paint treatment. Filling in rub strips and the fugly federalize markers. L999 33x Prussian blue. This was the original color but was badly faded. Looking forward to updating more pics here from Austin.

If/when I ever get around to painting mine I'll be deleting the "not OEM on a Euro" bumperettes, as well as the rear spoiler. Really like the look.

Will it look odd having a front spoiler and no rear spoiler....that's what running through my head at the moment..

I spoke with Austin earlier this week and he hasn't had a chance to get started on it yet but was hoping later this week or next...

So for us not in the "Know", who is Austin Embry and where is this shop located?

I have to assume, from this posting, the 928 painting experience is good/great.
