Thirsty Thursday's!!!!! Had a 2 heat pumps to install after work (5pm)....killed them by 9 while second customer fed beers.....that led to the peelers for a couple more then stopped at a painter buddy from works house who was been answering my 10000 questions and they were in the middle of shots and doughnut contests on an old Honda 50.....should have got pics of the rubber on the floor of his paint booth!!!!! Fun stuff

I'm glad I split this session up and only cleared the main body last night and not the hood and couple removables......there was way more room and less blowing shit around stirring up dust! May do the rest tonight or wait a day to move tub, we'll see......


Thanks to all that helped out the paint rookie =D>

Yeah scrubbed the shit outta the place! Still ended up with a couple little bastards some how..... Gun I'm using blows a lot of shit around, wasting tons of overspray.....thinking I may pick up an HVLP before jumping on the oval to help out that issue?

spent the last 4 hours wet sanding the tub 360 deg...man clear sands like butter compared to that SS ](*,) there was one tiny fish eye and the only run I got was under tail light area right on the lip, super easy to make go away...... nibbed the couple flecks of dust out then 2000/3000....0 peel left and as perfect as I can accomplish
Just have hood and light housings to rub a bit and borrow a polisher

Didn't take any pics but it's the smoothest its ever been \:D/

I know I am going to soundly slapped about the head and shoulders for even uttering this BUT, just pick up a Harbor Freight variable speed buffer and go to at it. I know, I know, Harbor Freight stuff is junk, I have heard it a thousand times, but I have one of those buffers that has become a legend, I'm not sure how long I have had it, well over a decade, probably closer to 15 years, it just keeps going and going, I cant tear it up. Maybe I got lucky and got the only good one they ever made, cant say for sure, but I cant count how many cars have been polished with that thing and it keeps purring along. You have done an amazing job on this buggy cant wait to see it out in the sunshine.
