    Removed the Door Open Buzzer

    Funny enough I found mine disconnected, not knowing what it was, I plugged it in. As soon as I realized it is the door buzzer, pulled the plug right back out, no thank you. Often let the car idle in the garage and leave the door open. That noise is annoying.

    Here is my 72 Grande 351c 2v

    That is why I got a few sags and runs, went a bit too heavy trying to glass it out. But I did 3 coats so plenty material to cut and polish. Honestly I rather deal with a run than dry spray.

    Here is my 72 Grande 351c 2v

    Only the 40 grit one is useful. The others I didn't bother with. Buy a couple of them. You will wear the edges on curves of the car. I also bought the 2 inch strip discs from Amazon for some of the more complex areas like around the back window of a coupe. Used a cordless drill for those.

    A tip for anyone painting their car, I used speedokote epoxy primer, which sands awesome but their tech sheet says to use a 1.3 tip, don't that stuff is thick, the second round of primer I used a 1.6 tip on my paint gun, so much smoother finish. The black is also speedokote Jet Black single...

    Here is my 72 Grande 351c 2v

    So more progress was made today. Tomorrow I need to sand out a few runs, then spray it again. Followed by a cut and buff and should be good enough for me. Not going for show quality, it will be a weekend cruiser. Not perfect by any means but not bad considering the last car I painted was a...

    Here is my 72 Grande 351c 2v

    It actually works great, doesn't heat up the panels too much. Went through 4 sanding drums for the entire car. Removing 2 paint jobs on this car so it was pretty thick. Much faster than using an orbital sander.

    Well finally got some warm weather last weekend here in Washington. So I finally got to spray the epoxy primer. The primer went on a bit rough not sure why, but I needed to sand it anyway, so it's not a big deal. Now on to a bit of bodywork. I used a 1.3 tip which is what the tech sheet called...
