Jim got the first coat of Grampian Grey on tonight. It revealed we have a bit of work left to do, so he held off on the clear. We missed some sanding scratches and a couple of dings–staring at primer for ages will do that to you. Aside from a couple of minor points on the body, we completely spaced on one of the doors–it had three small door dings and a very small crease.
We’ll have to wet-sand the entire coat with 600 once the divots are filled, as we won’t be able to repaint it within the 24 hour window the PPG DBU requires. (It will be good practice for the 1500 wet-sand I’ll have to do once the clear is on prior to polishing.)
The flourescent paint-booth lighting is difficult to judge color by; the grey is medium dark with just a bit of warmth in it. The following photo is stiched from two, hence the fake wide-angle look.
Where are the dots? The stripes? Perhaps a nice bumblebee???
she looks great! Just keep going & keep me abreast of further progress. Cheers to both you & Jim!…j
I’m with Allie! I think some Hello Kitty! emblems on the doors would be nice.
Great pictures. I have some very similar views of my 67, GT. The final paint was just finished last week.
