And, in case you didn't notice, Matt's was reman'd in Canada.
With the winter weather looming in Michigan, I decided to get the rest of the paint finished this weekend. Has a few setbacks but overall a good weekend. On the second coat of the gas tank, I discovered the hard way that the cap was cross threaded on the gun and I dumped paint on to the tank. Also discovered the hard way that the rag I used for wax/grease removal must have been contaminated as I had a few fisheyes pop through. On the positive side I figured out how to correct the massive orange peel problem I had with the body. This time I waited 20 minutes in between coats and it was a night and day difference as it laid out way more flat. I think I was rushing the coats before which led to the orange peel.
That laid down really nice Looks good
Looks real FINE.
Looking awesome bud!!
Really nice! Great job.
Progress report- dash was grained by Stuart Lyman and he did an awesome job. Had a chance to get some paint on the inside of the body and get a few things into place- like the gauges....
That dash is way too classy for a hot rod!
Dash is stunning! Love the rest of the build as well.
