Hi Jack
My arms and shoulder hurt just from seeing you block sanding.
Not a fun job but well worth it when itís all shiny!
Steve

Each step is better behind me than ahead of me! There's still a lot more nasty work ahead, but after the paint is done it's all clean work.

I started painting today. This is single stage gloss black. I removed all the panels that bolt on and painted the rear half in the garage.There's a little dust but no problem. The whole car will be sanded and buffed anyway.

The rest of the parts will be done in my friend's booth over the next few days.
Here's a link to a short video. For some reason it doesn't auto rotate correctly. It's sideways. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuSa...ature=youtu.be
