It’s Coming Home!

Paint is Complete. Reassembly Next.

Friday, April 16th, 2010

Ken has finished under-coating the body, color-sanding, and polishing. I cannot wait to see it in person. This weekend the body, doors, hatch, and hood will be reassembled onto the chassis in preparation for shipping next week.

Under-hood Paint and Armor Coat Complete

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Things are really moving along now. The under-hood paint is complete. Ken did a nice custom job on it that look’s really sharp. The bottom sides of the car, as well as the front portion of the nose have been covered in an armor coat (heavy duty clear coat) as well to prevent rock chips, etc.

Paint Completed.

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Ken finished paint last night and sent some new pics today. The hood and sides get an Armor Coat clear coat applied today, tomorrow the under body gets painted, and Thursday is assembly day.

Painting in Progress…

Monday, April 12th, 2010

The paint process is underway. Ken sent me some pics after the first basecoat was applied. Another basecoat is up next, then clear. The car is scheduled to be shipped back in a few weeks.
