Your gaining on it. I have more trouble with rounded surfaces than flatter ones. The opposite of women, I like em without flat surfaces

Wow! I guess that's the first time I've actually seen in writing what it takes to achieve a good quality paint job.

That confirms it for me.... I don't have what it takes to do that level of finish work. I'm lacking in Patience, mind set, patience, equipment, patience, know how, patience, desire and cash!

I do like watching you tho.

My bride might be right!! I might have a slight problem.

Don't mistake what I'm doing here for professional work - it's just the way I do it. Right or wrong, it's what works for me in a somewhat less than sanitary or optimal environment and I'm always open to learning more and improving.
The bottom line for me is that I would pay big time for some one else to put in the time needed to get it even to my level of finish. Also, if things don't come out so great, at least I didn't pay someone to be disappointed .

I hear and feel ya ZZ. Being an "EX" body and paint guy spent 80hrs
plus just on the cut and buff way too many times but if you want the mile
deep look and a quality shine that's what it takes .... looking forward to
the finish...

I have been away from the page for a while and was wondering how your project was coming along. Looking great. You might have this baby on the road by the time you hit 100 pages. Keep up the great work

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Thanks! Dunno if it will get done that fast, just block sanding the second coat of hi build primer and spot filling now. Maybe some color on the main body by the end of March.

You had 2 dirty words there, block sanding! Look at my 33 plymouth build and you can tell how much of that I done. I used to be real picky until my back, shoulders and hands went to crap, now I just don't care. You are doing a great job, it's going to make a nice hot rod.
