I spent another full day in the shop today, mainly sanding and sanding and sanding. :rolleyes:

Here's yours truly, applying tape to the underhood area.


Here's the car in ground-coat.


And, finally, here's the base-coat.

Red enough for you? :D

See Chapter 21 for additional photos.

Thanks. I'm rather pleased that no one has commented on the fenders.

I think they've achieved the look I was after. :D Stock to all but the trained eye........but........capable of great things. :D

I noticed early on that the fenders looked wide. But, it blends so perfectly that you'll fool a lot of people.:thumbsup:

Here it is in clear-coat, prior to final buff.








Bad photo as there are all sorts of reflections and lighting issues in the booth.

After drying over the weekend, the buff out will be done on Monday.

Tuesday......... body-drop and the trip home.
