|Shoved the Vette outside so I had enough room in the garage to paint the hood, doors and all the little items.|
This red has no metallic in it so painting separate is not a problem. Just make sure the paint is mixed well.
Windshield leaked so I FILLED the area between the body and the rubber gasket with 3M #08509 sealer. It's black, sticky, and messy. I don't believe it will ever harden. Cleaned up the excess with Enamel reducer. No windshield leaks.
Door leaks are another matter.
|Due to the high temperature and my painting ability, the clear has a bit of orange peel
(the same as new Vettes).
Wet sanded with 1200-1500 and buffed it.
For Project '74 my thoughts are do the base coat one day, making sure it's just the way I want it. Do the clear coat the next day. We'll see.
