Yes the car is coming right along SET, looking good. I have a couple of questions though did your son ever get his toaster repaired?  And what music are you listening to at this point of the project? These are terribly important questions I'm surprised someone hasn't. Ask already ;)

Cheers guys.  ;)

Mr Kid, ROFL that really made me laugh........ you crack me up.

No the toaster was er, toast.  A for music, at times like this , it needs to be played real loud, just ask Renovations.

Wow sounds like a great group ! Do you think you could bring them to the Nationals the next time you are over? That sounds like the kind of music that Renovations
 would love !

excellent. This sure is coming along just great. This is going to be one of those cars you have to stare at for hours just to see all the cool changes and detail.

   It is also nice seeing a car turn out so great without needing the huge shop or professional paint booth. You give hope to the hopeless(aka ME)

The cars looking good. Are there some kinda scoops in the hood looks like heat extractors maybe it's just a light illusion.

Sir English...you're my "inspiration" for backyard painting. Your car looks awesome. I see you're already wet sanding. Should I be doing so as well? I figured I needed more "leveling" and coats before I smoothed the primer. Let me know..I'm a quick learner but this is my first full car paint job (I went down to bare metal first)
(and no..I have no idea where you got those scoops but they're really innovative....perfect)

Hey, what happened to the orange?! I like the vents on the hood!

I was going to cut the vents/scoops out of a third gen T/A hood and put them on my Esprit hood, but never got the chance.

Heres a sneaky peek.......... its not finished yet..........





Its going to be flatted down and shot again to gain some deepness..... thats a straight black, no clear.

I do think its about time i got somewhere decent to paint though !
