Default How about Some Basecoat?

This rain is slowing me down. I shot the Base Coat on the hood, rear bumper, front bumper and headlight covers at least. Going to have to shoot the Clear Coat another time. This is soooo time consuming. I wish I wasn't so ---- and I didn't have Ship Wrights disease..... Taking me forever to complete.
Pictures for your viewing again! :gay:

Default LOLA on BASE!

Well, here are a few more pictures for you folks. Almost everything is BASED now. The Fender covers are CLEAR COATED. As soon as it stops raining, I'll get bask to work on it. The hood needs a new base coat & the rear fascia needs to be base coated --- Then it's on to the CLEAR COAT for her......... Pictures BELOW. Click on them to make them bigger.
Apologies for clarity -- Camera doesn't work too well in the enclosed garage!............

Default And Here's some CLEARCOAT!

CLEARCOATED - I'll probably let it dry up a little and then sand it down with 1K grit paper and reshoot the clear. I want it to be better than it is, but I'm tired of FUTZIN with it.....
P.S. You might notice that the windshield surround hasn't been shot yet - I'm going to do that separate from the rest of it.....

Thanks -- Yes -- First time - Lotta work involved with it and I still need to do more before I put the whole thing back together. I want it to look like a new car paint job. Plus the best part about the whole thing is that it is a 2 part paint system with base and clear, unlike the original factory paint jobs that were a single stage system. Thsi way I have a real deep shiny look because of the multiple clear coats and it will not fade out and dull.......

no but if you put the tires on the left side on the car that were on the right side of the car your tread will be pointing in the rigth direction.

How about if I turn them upside down? :gay:
NO - I know what you mean - The tires are on the car right now so I can roll it in and out of the garage. - But, thanks for the heads up on the rotation. I might not have noticed it if you hadn't pointed it out to me!
And Thank You for the Compliment. It's a real Pain In The *** to do it, but then I can only blame myself for any flaws in the finished product. I do know one thing - There will not be any RED PAINT on any gaskets or seals around the car. I hate it when they tape off a car around the seals and gaskets and leave telltale signs that it is a REPAINT!

You can do mine next! It needs a paint job soon. The front bumper, finishing panel, mirrors, and drivers front fender all fade fast. I wax the thing about twice a month so you can't tell, but I get tired of doing it.

Sure BRAINY -
I'm CHEAP TOO! $20 per hour I've probably spent 70 hours on mine so far and it still not done = figure it out to $2500 in labor - No paint and supplies :gay:

Default We're TALKIN SHINE!

What do do think guys?
Is this Mirror finish or what? Now I just have to sand down the rest of the car with 1500 grit wet paper & Compound it out and then double wax it.
Oh ya, forgot to tell ya that I ran out of paint on the front bumper REDO. So I'm waiting for more paint to finish the front bumper and the winsheild frame....DAMN!
It's going to blind people when I'm done with it - Of course it has only taken me like "FOREVER"! :gay:
