Well my goal is to paint it around my b-day in may. There is still alot to do before paint even comes near my car. I'm trying to do most if not all of the bodywork myself and between school and work this semester there isn't much time.
I'm either going to be buying or borrowing a 16" orbital longboard sander within the next couple months so my doors, hood, and top of the trunk should be damn near perfect. And I also want to get a couple grinders and a better 8" orbital sander as mine is more for finishing. Everywhere I did bodywork is going to get sprayed with 2K primer/sealer/filler and the whole car is going to be blocked with 400 grit sand paper. I'm not goint to be spraying the car though. I'll leave it up to a painter friend of mine who I consider to be pretty good. And I'm probably goign to go with a deep dark metalic/burgandy/redish color. Kinda like this:
I'm still not 100% on that though.
