Misty Gold

Yesterday  was a very nice day, light breeze and 71 degrees at noon. It took about 3 1/2 hours to shoot the GM Gold Mist. I used 4 coats of Wandabase for coverage and then 2 coats of Southern Polyurethane's Universal clear.

For a trainee, the afternoon went better than expected. I really like the Wandabase HS, It lays down perfectly for me. Add the SPI clear and the job went very well.

I'm improving on little things, I cannot imagine painting a whole car at once!!  I think this is pretty classy for the Stude!

Shall We Continue??

"Run Hard and Put Away Wet"

That was last year, it's taking a little longer than expected but we're moving forward. Although not sure of the future of my land speed retro rod, I'm going ahead with the 63 Hawk dash. 

I've begun the finishing of the walnut after fitting the components to the dash.

The dash had a preliminary sanding of the epoxy primer yesterday, and will get two coats of building primer today.

I hope to have a finish painted unit to display next week.
