    Sanded the hood with 80 grit yesterday.

    Then stripped the front of the deck lid and sanded the back of it with 80 grit before moving to 180 grit for a few spots. Forgot to take a picture of the deck lid! 🤦‍♂️

    Sanded door jams and around the engine bay seals and vents with 320 grit. Helped Dad spray 2K primer on the front fenders as well.
