    We’re getting there, slowly.

    The city is still getting all the gravel off the streets here in my area, and the weather is finally improving to the point where it’s nice enough to go cruising so there’s been no real rush up until this point.

    I would say in the next week or two it should be together enough to enjoy it for the rest of the season. Don’t worry, that’s still the plan!

    Thanks Eric.
    Yeah, I can mask, I know the proper technique and all that, I’m just really slow at it and despise it.
    I’m pretty sure I’d rather have a root canal performed by a blind man with a hammer and a pair of pliers rather than have to mask something for paint!
    :cautious:

    Thanks Martin!
    It’s getting there, slowly but surely and little by little.
    It’s like the old joke:
    How do you eat an elephant?
    One bite at at time...

    Thanks Jared. Send Sean my way, I’m pretty sure I’ve got enough to keep him busy!
    ;)

    “Ahem.
    First color done, and not even any runs for Motorhead Mike to point out!”

    (Drops the mike and walks off stage)

    Gonna take tomorrow night off and give the black some time to cure and fully harden, then it’ll be masking off the “B” pillars and spraying the second color.

    Sweeeeet!!!! That black looks real good D! Can't wait to see the 2nd color around it, as well as how the B pillars will "disappear" once the glass is installed!
