Quick trip to Walnut Creek this morning. Cleaned overspray from dash
and steering wheel. Good thing as the paint is hardening. Just
Went back over the body surfaces. Sanded paint with 400 wetordry to
remove dust specks, orange-peel and any paint imperfections- all ready for
final coat but must wait another 48 hours for first coats to cure.
Re-masked all door openings, Picked up my
unsuspecting brother at
the airport. Drafted into service he ran the hose and lights as I put
on the final coat. Lighting still a problem but only 3 dry spots.
Will try to remedy at a later date. Pics as follows-
