Good to see your back at it Ryan.

 

Thanks Mike. Its been really hard to find the time to get anything done this time of the year. The weather is nice now but now is the busy season at work, working too many 12 hr days. My goal is to have it painted in the next couple months. Ryan

I finally found some time to spray the gloss black single stage urethane today. My plan is to sand the black, tape and mask for the stripes then shoot the Grabber blue base, unmask the black stripes then shoot the urethane clear over everything. I'll probably have to wait til I get a long weekend again. Ryan.

Oh yeah that's what I wanted to see! Some fresh paint.

Hopefully I'll have the body in color in the next couple weeks.

Thanks everyone! This was my goal this year, to get it painted. It's far from being done but at least this big obstacle is out of the way. I'll post some better pictures of the body when I get it outside in the sun. Here's one of the hood, haven't cut and buffed it yet.
