Almost There!

Saturday was final guide coat blocking. The weather could not have been better! I consider being able to roam around in t-shirt and shorts in December a gift from God. Notice my leaf blower in the photo...

When I shot this guide coat, I hit a pocket of dust with the paint gun and *POOOF* a huge cloud of dust was thrown into the air. Not a big deal in the primer, but not acceptable in the final coat. So a quick blast of all the nooks and crannies with the blower was in order. It worked great!

Also got all of the loose items blocked out, too. Here are the engine cover pieces and gas cap cover.

Then I shot one last chance coat of K36 primer.

Today, I will sand this coat then shoot the base coat (color) and clear coat (shine!).
