Between Franz , Riley and I we knocked out a good bit of the main cage work and tacked it in yesterday.
Thanks for the coming down helping Riley.

Dude.. yesterday was a DAY!!! damn I slept like a rock last night!!!! Audrey and I sanded and sanded until I felt we could spray some white on it. Audrey also cleaned out my booth and changed my filters and scraped the glass on the lights…. it was nice to have the booth cleaned up… Anyway.. You guys know I am all about saving weight… even on materials!!!! So… This is JUST single stage paint, straight on bare metal and a little bit of body filler.. ONE EVEN COAT…. I didn’t two coat ANYTHING!!!! I mixed up 3 sprayable quarts and coated it inside and out!!!! Silver white… Like bus bumpers and wheels… 😎
