Well, I got the trunk lid, drivers door and marker lamp bezels base-cleared today. I'm waiting for the base coat to dry on the passenger door as I am typing this:

I squirted some more parts over the weekend. Sorry for the poor lighting, but i have been putting the painted parts in my basement to keep them safe and the lighting down there is like a fine Italian restaurant. The hood is done too, but it's up against the wall in the garage w/ a truck in front of it, so I'll get a pic of it later in the week.






The roof and quarters are scheduled to be painted this coming weekend and that'll be it for color minus the bumper filler panels.

Hello Guys and Gals,

I sprayed the roof and quarters today:






So all that remains is the bumper filler panels which I will probably do tomorrow. Next, the reassembly begins.
