    Oh my gosh does it ever end. Now down to color cut and buff. Next time think I will find a smaller car to work on. Yes wet sanding out the orange peel. First go around is 1500 sanding the hole car wet that is. Then 3000 behind that. Then the buffer comes out. Well here is a few pics. Russ. IMG_0101.JPG IMG_0102.JPG IMG_0103.JPG

    Just think Russ you almost got it licked everything is down hill from here, cause the motor and transmission is a piece of cake

    Yes D. I really hope that the rest goes quicker. Every one tells me the body is half the battel. If every thing goes well with the motor then it should be a piece of cake from here out. Ha Ha. Russ.

    Yes 69hemibeep that is for sure on the edges. I just lightly touched them after sanding the flat spot's. Most people don't realize that those edges just don't take the paint like flat area's do. It turned out pretty good if I say so my self. Russ.
