You did such a great job on your 36/40 dash. Great color. Will we be able to see it in Windover at speed week?
Perfect Kipp.These cars look so great in maroon.
Thanks Everyone. She is getting so close to color I can taste it and yes she had to be maroon. She will definatly be out to Bonneville for speed week.
I made some carts to hold the front fenders today. I will make a couple to hold the rear's tomarrow.
We want to see the fender "carts"... we're afraid we'll miss something!
I took some pic's of the fenders on the carts this morning before I loaded the fenders in the truck.

Nothing fancy just some carts I had with some mounts added.
I left work early to get her loaded on a trailer and then take her to the paint shop.

two days and counting until paint I cant wait!!!!!!
Holy shit balls Kipp!
Man I cant wait to see this! Hey if you need an extra hand loading, etc I will be in SLC today......let me know.
This is exciting! Be sure to get plenty of paint under it. One trip to Bonneville can ruin a lot of hard work. That crap is hard to get completely off. There is enough salt on the streets and parking lots in Wendover to wreck stuff.
Kipp, Euro Sport looks like a great and together facility. But with all the hot rods in the works there, maybe they should think about re-naming the place! With all the time and effort you have put into this project it should be comforting to have it painted in such a facility. I sure the results will be spectacular. Will it be a two stage (color and clear coat) or single stage finish? With the finish on you will be just about half way done with this one! I mean because of anxiousness or deliberate caution, assembly from here on out seems to take an inordinate amount of time. I'm 8 months past paint and still not done!
Best Regards and good luck with all your endeavors, KB.
I know right!
Thanks for the offer Eric.
The salt is nasty this is true but there is nothing on earth like it!
Euro Sport is definatly a nice shop to be able to have access to and I will powder a frame or two for Tom for letting me use his facility. She will be painted in base clear.
She had better be finished by april at the latest. As long as everything keeps moving at this pace she should be done for spring. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Tomarrow paint will fly!
That maroon will look great - I can't wait to see it! I've had my 38 coupe for 35 years, and whenever I get asked what color I'm going to paint it I have always said maroon. Fantastic build!
It's Paint Day!
Yes it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have been doing last minute little things this morning like wet sanding one of the fender skirts that slipped through the cracks and a few other little flaws.
I will post pic's later today or in the morning if painting goes to late. Wish me luck!
To a bum like me it's sure to be more than perfect.
For you, after the months of amazing work you've done, I hope finally seeing it in color makes you smile real hard for a long time to come.
My first car(1959) was a '38 coupe and the planned color was Honduras Maroon. It was the only color I knew the name of, It never happened. Any time now.
I've seen pictures of the painted body, but I'm not stealing his thunder and sharing them! Looking amazing!!!!
Are you talking about milkweed? He looked like he was wearing a new shade of maroon too...
Ha! No, but yes. We really need to convince him to wear a suit while in the booth.
It's 130 in the morning and I just got home. The body rear fenders and skirts are done and came out beautiful. I will go back tomarrow to finish everything else. will post many pics tomarrow.
I´m so excited,can hardly wait to see them pics.
