Thanks so much Brian, you were so much help to me and I truly appreciate you and all the other Pros on here that are so giving with your time and knowledge to help out complete strangers. Hotrodding is truly a brotherhood and I am so grateful for this website and the people on here.

I can't wait for my next project, it will be a piece of cake because I made all my mistakes on this one and nothing teaches better than do overs!! ;)

Really Really Nice Job
 
The paint job looks out standing.

I congratulate you for a job well done.

What brand of paint did you so?

:) Thanks.

Summit Racing Single Stage Acrylic Urethane and Summit Racing 1:1 Epoxy primer. I also used some of their 2K High build but mainly just the epoxy, I liked how it laid out alot better and it was still pretty easy to sand. I think I just need more practice spraying the high build... gun sets, distance, etc.

I didnt understand the one picture at first, then I realized it was the REFLECTION. Absolutely beautiful.:thumbup:

Beautiful job!!! But you better get rid of the cat....An electric fence deal connected to the car should work wonders.

Heh, Thanks. :) The pics are actually at my neighbors house, he assured me the cat was not a jumper...:) I cant figure out if he was sniffing the fresh paint or saw his reflection...

It was a lotta work, but being able to say I did it all and in the garage to boot, makes it all worth it! Cant wait to try something else... I have a 98 vette that needs the rockers fixed and resprayed... that might be next.

Yeah I have cats that jump, and PEE! That is hard to deal with without killing them.

Hey Brian, wanted to tell you thanks for the tip about shimming up/down hood/trunk hinges... used it today and it helped alot.

Great Info!

"Yeah I have cats that jump, and PEE! That is hard to deal with without killing them." Seems to be a global problem.
