Ahh, cover your eyes, my car is running around topless.


Here we are all loaded up and covered, ready to run over to the paint booth.


A quick sanding, then wiped down and ready for primer.

Overhead view. Has a few small speckles that I will wet sand out, and a few sags in the clear. Will see how those turn out when dry. They seemed to be flowing out real good.
