As previously advertised.....here are the comeplete body shots. Today they were going to put it back in the paint booth to shoot the scoops with semi gloss black paint.
The tiny tape pieces you see on the car are marking minor paint imperfections that Harry found and were also destined to get fixed and rubbed back out.
As long as the weather co-operates and they get their final few items sorted out, the plan is to bring the car home on this FRIDAY!!
I just wanted to stay and keep walking around the car, I just couldn't believe it! Harry and Dave did a great job!

4 coats of clear coat will do that......and of course wet sand wet sand wet sand, that helps too! At this point the car hasn't had the final glaze of the buffer applied to it, it can only get better....

Keep in mind you need the doors to be off the car when you put the side molding on (or at least attach the little brackets to attach the molding on via the door jamb holes).

greetings,
Rob.
