The stars look good, why not.
You have done a really nice job, something to be quite proud of.

The Evercoat Slick Sand polyester primer is a real high build and works real well with block sanding panels perfectly smooth.
I could have block sanded with the epoxy primer, but it would have taken a few more coats.

Totally beautiful transformation It reallt sets the front off now. Great job.

I just now noticed the ceiling of your covered area in the pic above the Texaco globe. Looks to be beadboard. Is it a vinyl product or wood? I like the looks of that over conventional soffit.

It's looking great, Roger. Truly first class job. I can almost hear the "ding ding" of the driveway bell just looking at the picture.

Thanks for the complements everyone.

Kevin,
Yes, it is wood beadboard painted with oil base paint. I used oil based on it and the garage doors and latex on all the Hardie siding.

Stars Completed

Thanks for all the compliments!

Got my stars done. I filled the seams with lead, primered with SPI epoxy, painted with ss urethane in Texaco red and then cleared with SPI universal clear.

Still haven't ordered the letters yet but hope to soon. I also intend to set in those concrete pads for a walk way to the restroom entry on the left side and get rid of the ugly old carpet.

Concho Valley Corvette Club

It was "Spontaneous Sunday" for the club and they decided to drop in!
Nine Corvettes in all. Ten including mine inside the garage.

Update:
I have ordered the letters to put the words "MARFAK LUBRICATION" and "WASHING" over the bays. They should be in next week.

Also, thanks MRGM for the complements on my shop!
