    I set the bumper on tonight just to check out the color match and it's a spot on match. I doubt I even have to blend into the door but I suppose I better just to be safe.

    Got the hood and fender painted tonight. I used a medium reducer instead of slow so I got a bit more orange peel in the paint, and a fair amount of dust and bugs. It will defiantly need to be scuffed and buffed. I think this will be the last time I use Omni paint though, it takes a lot of paint to cover something.I'm risking it by not blending the door, but I looked at the bumper again tonight and I can't see a difference in the shade of blue . I'm looking for a problem and can't see it so I think it'll be alright.

    Nice work! I haven't heard anyone like Omni after they used it a couple of times.

    Well this sucked. I went out to the shed Sunday night to find my clear coat turned milky when it cured. I thought what the crap and wondered what happened and according to google high humidity can cause that. I had the shed floor watered down for dust like I always do but I guess this time it bit me. I buffed it shinny but it's not a match like the bumper, it looks light. I'm going to fold on this one, It has to got the body shop to pull on the frame a bit more and I'm going to have them spray it too. I'm sick of it.

    I've had high humidity burn me too! Isn't living in this area great? I just wet sanded it and resprayed it. Yesterday and last night turned muggy fast. It looks like this next hurricane has changed our weather pattern for 3-5 days too.

    Well that sucks.. but it happens to us all.
    One of the dangers of painting many parts over many days for the same car.

    Well I think we're on the homeward stretch with this thing finally. Local body guy got it repainted for me and I got it mostly together now and it's looking pretty good. This has been one of the longest easy rebuilders that I've done, probably because I was sick of it before I started. Sorry about the fuzzy pic, I don't feel like going to the shed and re taking it.
