Default looking back

Its that time of year again when we look back and wonder what we've been doing on our projects. Thought I would try posting a few pics of the project and was wondering where I got all the energy. I did have help from my buddy Pierre and Ray the painter guru. First pic is of the 30 Murray 4 door which had wood rotten clear through, next is the cab shortened up after I decided to convert to a pick-up truck, last pic is about 4 months ago. Except for the interior its ready for the road now. Colors are Niagara Blue Light with Duchess blue trim (paint from Global)

Well, I threw together a stand to hold my 29 tudor rear fender while painting the top surface. It is now in prime (black feather-fill over epoxie primer). Another week or so and fender number one will be done. Two months on one fender - that is not excessive - is it?

You've been cautioned about trial fitting the fender before you shoot color, right?

Yes. After block sanding, 'll take it up for a try before shooting the top coat. If it doesn't fit it will be MORE than two months per fender!

Good. You should be fine, then.
