Yesterday we finally got it close enough to paint. We took special care to ensure the bottom of the car didnt get any overspray on it. If you remember we have already painted the frame and under side of the car. We started this paint job like all the rest. A full coat of sealer. We then sprayed 3 coats of the special blue color. We followed that with 3 coats of high solids urethane clear. Now that the body is painted, the next step will be to wait a couple of weeks to fully cure. Once that happens we will start the High Performance Finish part of this job, wet sanding and buffing. This job has really turned out great. The body on this car was very nice and straight before we even started and it really shows now.
