I've never painted a car or motorcycle tins in a booth. Always outside, no mask. I'm lucky I don't have lung cancer or something.
Let me draw you a fucking picture!

Since im working outside i had to prime the whole body before i called it a night when i primed it the first time. I had a little body work left.

So i stripped those areas today when i blocked it down and bodyworked what i had left. Its officially in first prime now. and on track to see final prime tomorrow and color this weekend if the weather allows it.

I also stripped all of that nasty thick undercoating too. what a pita! but it was pretty rewarding to see all of this healty og paint and solid metal!

I used a combo of a light angled hammeing for the thick stuff and a putty knife/80 grit/laqcure thinner for the thin and pliable stuff. It took a long time, im glad thats over!

Came out real nice. Nothing like a nice coat of sealer/primer to bring it all together.

Ok, I spent the whole afternoon trying to get a laptop and get these pictures up when i could have been working. But ill try to make up for it in the next several hours! [-o<

Saturday and sunday i had to follow up on a few leads, so i went dubalope hunting instead of working on this. It was worth it!
