Blocking out the lumps
Pretty much ready for paint. Hoping to get it in color this week. BCA regional is later this week so that’s going to throw a wrench in the timeline.
Roof is white. I didn’t want to take the chance of dragging my shirt in the paint or kicking the sides of the car when I’m standing on step stools to reach the middle of the roof. I’ll have to put this car in the air to paint the bottoms of the rockers, so it will be even taller then. I figured this was the safest route.
In the garage until 1:30am over night…got it done, though. I’ve moved it down to the big shop so I can get some small paint work done in other stuff. While I wait for this to outgas, I’ll be working on getting door and quarter glass fitted. After a couple weeks, I’ll knock the orange peel down and buff it out.
Wow, that looks sharp. Is it Silver? Or is there a hint of green in there?
It's called Sylvan Gray Poly, has a hint of green. In person, it looks more green than it shows in the photos.
First round of buffing about halfway done…
Sticking shiny bits onto the car now….
Front clip got hung today..
Man I bet that owner is getting pumped!
No doubt! I am, too..
Hell I’m pumped and I have no part of it!
Just amazing work.
Front and rear glass is in. That was fun.
