That looks great. I'm about 2-3 days behind you on my 74 Vette project. Man what a job!! The factory primer/sealer was bad (cracked like a dried up lake ) and ruined the factory paint job, then someone primed and painted lacquer over that. Iv'e got it down to the fiberglass about 90% done, just some detail areas left. I'm a mechanic not a painter so I went to my local auto body supply store (Wesco) and told them "I'm a dummy tell me how to do it right the first time as I don't ever want to do this again" $280.00 later I got PPG K36-Q primer/cat/reducer, tape, paper, and a bunch of freebies (graduated buckets, strainers, sticks, ect). Iv'e read my books, got my guns, masks and portable paint booth. NOW I'm armed and dangerous!! This ought to be an experience. You go First. and share with us how it goes.

p.s. I'm gonna see if I can trade my last teenager that's at home for the Paint..
