    Oval body is already stronger just because of the small windows right??:) looking good boys! Kicking ass! 😎

     

    They should graft a split into the rear oval just to mess with people. 😈

    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… 😎

    JJ blasted and hung parts for paint yesterday. 81705811-D926-4D7F-B387-B5F1098E8076BB09313E-1862-442E-9FB8-ABD11E763213

    I also knocked out seat mounts yesterday. BFC62CFC-2AD7-4623-805C-E8190965AD2F9CFDEB8B-084B-4BEC-A99B-398D381BE39D068C20FC-332D-46DD-B64D-8F2D02F81F0B63B8930D-3CF5-4C74-A93D-1393C75E2188031FB711-8B9B-4B67-8E39-83ECE9652F8FC69DA0C8-B72A-46EC-BFE1-C8A065C83E8FC428563F-EFFF-4CFD-9B10-5E9B67E33075

    Man… what a push…  I feel great!!  But I also feel tired…. 😎   My hands and wrists have been just throbbing at night!!  Holding onto the air tools and shit really toughens up your hands!!!!

    I got some parts to paint…   One even coat right!!!  It’s funny doing things this way.. where weight is more important than the surface finish… 😎  The single coat on the car looks WAAAYYY better than you would expect… flat as all get out, crsipy!!

    Pat kicked ass on seat mounts and welding shit yesterday… we are making great progress… 😎

    Luck is when preparation and opportunity meet.👊
