We pretty much spent the last week and a half sanding and taking care of the 1st stage buffing. Here's a couple shots from yesterday- these pics do NOT do this paint job justice. Just cell phone pics.






Now for the real payoff. Here's a reflection shot of me in the doors. This is after the final buffing but still before wax. My head looks a little crooked from the curve of the door, but this will give you the basic idea of what we have done with this thing....





^^^ This one is my favorite!

Alllllllllmost! I'll have a couple more crappy cell pics posted up this weekend. Pass door is gung and the trim is starting to go back on. Sat we'll get the other door on and adjusted as well as the heater core replaced.

It should be on the road by next weekend. When we roll it out I'll take some pics with my good camera and post them up.

The paint work is officially done!!!! We need to sand and buff the topper yet, but no biggie. That can wait until fall for all I care. The warm weather is finally here.
The windshield won't be in until next week so we are waiting to assemble the dash until that shows up.

The bumpers and radio antenna still need to be installed, but those will only take an hour Monday night. I'm going to be as lazy as possible tomorrow. 14 hours on this thing today after 70 hours of my day job and working on this thing every night this week to get it to this point about did me in.

Enough chat!!!!
Pics:






I'll get some good non-cell pics next weekend once the bumpers are hung and the 35's are back under it.

Thanks guys!!!

I'm going to leave the wheels alone- for now..... I'll see what direction this build takes and wheel/tire options are a ways off since these wheels are in perfect condition and the tires are brand spankin' new. A year or two down the road I might bump up to some 17's on a matching color theme.

Thanks! Tonight we'll get the topper all sanded and buffed and maybe even stuck on there. While Jim's working on that, I'll start re-assembling the dash. There probably won't be any major notable pics to take until the 35's are back under it and it's out and ready for the street and dunes.

That should be this Thursday night if we can keep up this pace.....
