Right now I wish oh-so-much that there was a couple of more hours of the day…so I could spend some time in the garage. Work and other stuff haven’t let me spend the time I’ve wanted there lately but I hope things will change from this Friday.
Anyway, went by the garage tonight and once again it’s time to praise my father. Hands down, without him the car would be miserable. Thanks dad, you’re the best! Thanks to him, things are moving forward.
This weekend I’ll get my hands dirty as well!
While at work today, daddy-o sent me a picture. Apparently he assembled the “whatever-it’s-called” and put it back on the car. I was a little scared that the paint would differ a little from the rest of the car but according to him it blends great!
This morning we painted the hood underside and the “whatever-it’s-called” holding the front lights!
First we started with priming the hood and the plastic thing. For the “whatever-it’s called”, we used a primer intended for plastic.
Then, we started shooting the paint and after a number of coatings we decided that it looked good enough to call it a day.
It’s not show quality, but that’s not what I’m aiming for either. Considering our experience with shooting paint, I’d say it looks pretty darn good.
Spring’s on its way so now it’s time to assemble everything and get the new engine done!
This weekend we’ll paint the underside of the hood
More to come this weekend…
While me and my wife’s been on vacation in NY (of course bringing back lots of fun stuff from Summit Racing), daddy’s been busy in the garage getting stuff back in the engine bay. He spent a lot of time painting and polishing stuff and it all looks really good!
Now that the engine bay looks great ,it would be sort of stupid not to take care of the underside of the hood.
So next up is to sand it down to get rid of surface rust and old paint! Once that’s done, we’ll paint it!
