I'd say it's "okay". There are some areas that need to be fixed, a few low spots I couldn't see without it shiny, and the body line crease that goes from the taillight to the wheel opening has a small dip in one spot. On the bright side, with single stage paint it's a lot easier to fix body work. I expected to fix some areas after painting.The body looks straight as an arrow. Nice work.
Very impressive work in my opinion. Congratulations with this great milestone. Looking forward to see the completed car. Keep posting.It's painted! But I'm not that thrilled with how it went on. The first coat went on great, very smooth, but when I started the second coat something was wrong with the gun and the material wasn't coming out right. I had a full cup of paint with hardner in the gun so I kept going and tried to adjust the way I painted to make it work but it ended up very "rough". I've never had a problem between coats so I'm not sure what happened otherthan a blockage somewhere in the nozzle. I did a quick cleaning of the gun before the next coat and it went on great again. The damage was done though and that translates into a LOT more clean up sanding.
The last image shows the front fender sanded and one pass with cutting compound. You can see how rough the rest of the side panels are.
Well, with enough effort, you can actually polish a 'turd'. Proved by the Myth Busters.Peter, my delicate eyes wince whenever I read the word "turd" applied to the Great White or whatever you may want to call this beauty in the rough. The expression, "You can't polish a Turd" certainly does not apply to this survivor. Just a gentle thought. Steve
