Sadly the scratches from the previous owner who got his car keyed aren‘t fully gone, but definetly less visible.
I‘m still waiting for some missing parts before the car can be assemled again, ordered them at my local Toyota dealer and I hope they arrive soon^^
Soooo, let‘s do a comparison from the car and parts before and after the paintshop, shall we? :D

Well, first things first, let‘s start with the worst damage
