Default Resurrection Day is Near!

This is it. The time is near for LOLA to Debut her new dress.
I should be finished and ready for pictures tomorrow. I might respray the top because it has quite a lot of Cutting Compound sprinkles on it that most probably will not come out. All I have left to do is the Fog Light Assemblies and a few screws and of course the TOP.
I purchased new door Moldings from Marshall at Trussville. And when I took them out of the bag the passenger side was kinda bent up. I tried to straighten it as much as I caould, but I still don't like it. SOOOO, I'll have to call him and see if I can get a replacement.

Default Late Pictures!

It's been a couple of weeks since I put her all back together. She still needs pinstriping and I think I will paint the black stripe on the bottom again. I purchased a new LOGO emblem from Japan also - I didn't like the old "toilet bowl" emblem. I haven't stuck that one on yet either. All in all, I'm pretty happy with the finished results.
Thank You All,
LOLA

Did you paint it yourself? If you did, how long did it take you to finish it off? And did you use BC/CC?

no I didnt do it myself, all I did was some sanding and some minor body work my friends dads body shop did it, it took them a couple weeks to do it, but hey it was free

I can ask him how he did it if you have questions

I'm going to bring this back to the top just 'cause it's awesome. So you did this in your garage I assume, cause the car is on blocks. You didn't build a little booth?! I notice there's not much overspray on all the other things in your garage. What did you do for ventalation? What equipment (gun, compressor, water/oil seperator, respirator, etc)? How is it holding up after 2 years?

You -
In the garage -
Funny you should ask right now, because I am compounding out some over-spray from something else I did near the car about a month ago -
STUPID ME!

I got the paint on-line from here:
http://www.automotivetouchup.com/
Clear coat and SU Base Coat and some primer for nose cover and raer cover and the accident area at the rear quarter.

Lots of Vinyl that painters use - 1 Roll
2 fans - I didn't really mask off the garage - Too much of a pain in the ***, although if I remember coorectly I did cover many parts of it. But with the fans blowing and sucking there wasn't much of a problem.
I bought 2 HVLP guns (low end).
The compressor was (crappy), but it worked. Small compressors have a tendency to make more moisture. YES I used a water separator but moisture still came through at times. A small pressure regulator was also attached to the guns.
Double filter face mask about $40/50. (You need this for sure)
I removed all of the belt mouldings and anything RUBBER, for a more professional look. I hate paint/tape marks on the rubber.
Side mirrors werwe also removed.
I painted the hood, trunk lid, headlight covers inside the garage and outside.
Once again - The most important part is the prep work and how far you want to go to make it look right - My feeling was that if a paint shop wants $2K to $4K to fix my car and they are not rocket scientists, then I can do it also. It just takes time to do it right.

~~ The paint was the most expensive (app. $550) part of it. I spent around $1200 including the ($360) for the new front fender and the used door (whole w/windows and internals). ~~
