Thanks dbeast and expect more of the same as the build continues.

Gameover> Big grin at ya. I can Earl Scheib a car..... but this was done at a very professional level and about as expensive as a paint job can get. Sanded the OEM color down twice(second time finer grit) preped with solvent and silver metalflake applied-then process... 1 day to dry then 3 coats of candy , then 3 coats of clear over the next 2 days, then 2 full days of wet sanding twice / different grits and three buffing passes each with finer grit. The result overwhelms me and I have to be careful wherever I go and park out in the boondocks to avoid door marks. The paint cant be touched up, and a redo would involve twice the effort having to sand down hard and start with OEM Cranberry all over again. This was explained earlier but I know alot of you didnt see it the first time around and well.... I LOVE to talk about it It'* been a lifetime dream to take a car to this level and what better car than the last Bonnie made. Thanks
