Finally got the engine bay, door frames, door edges, lower surface of hood and trunk painted. Installed the engine and transmission along with the front suspension. Working on master cylinder and brake/fuel lines. Then will install hood, trunk and doors. Final painting coming soon I hope. Larry

I hope so, but knowing how slow I am????. It has taken me 3 months to get from the practice fender I painted to this point. I still have to paint the exterior, then color sand and buff it all out. Don't have a clue how long it will take to get all the electrical, interior, seals and all the glass put back in. Still have to get the exhaust put in and run the engine for the first time. Spring would be nice, but I guess I'll see???
It would sure be nice if everyone would like to volunteer a tech day when it comes to the start up of the engine. I don't have much experience at that. Crap, I don't have much experience at any of this. Oh well, long time before I get ready for that. No since thinking beyond painting for now. One thing I do feel good about. I am still making progess.

I will have the exhaust on by then but we can open the electric exhaust dumps. I already warned my neighbors that I want to make it loud some Saturday morning. They are good folks so I think the Mill (Yuppie) Creek patrol will leave me alone.

Well Larry, if that is the quality you are getting by taking your time. Just enjoy what you are doing, and dont put to much pressure on yourself.
Looks great!!!!

Larry - Sorry for the late post... was out of town for a week.

This is looking VERY NICE. The detail is impeccable. Like all other members, you are welcome to request a tech day or days, so when you get closer to that, post a thread and make sure you contact Kenny, Patrick, or myself to send a notice out via an email as well.

Oh boy -- now the fun part can start... color sanding. But it looks very nice all one color. Good thing the weather held out for you this weekend.

First 3 coats! How many do you plan on?

I just did some wetsanding on my front fenders after a repair. It can be VERY time consuming but rewarding too. Here's a video series of a Meguiars class on wetsanding. This is part 1 of 5:

Some good information and tips.

Going to sand this with 600 and apply two more coats. Then apply two more coats and sand with 1000, 2000 and if good stop there. If not I will go to 3000 grit then buff it all out.
Got a lot of good info from the painter at "Dreamers" on Evergreen Way about their process and bought the "Paintucation" series on body work, painting, and color sanding. Good videos.
Lots of work but that is what I did to the practice parts and they came out looking good. Larry

Well, I got back from our trip to Tucson so it's back to work on the car. Thought I would attach a couple of pics of the polishing work. I have the trunk finished, the right rear quarter, hood is done but I am not satisfied so more work to go. I have a few repairs to perform on the left quarter and around the roof rails. Getting there but it is so slow and soooo cold. Pics are of the right quarter.
