    Yeah not looking forward to that, my panels are far from perfect, cab and front fenders probably going to take a ton of work.

    My brother gets credit for most of that work, He has been putting at least 4 days a week into working on it, was hoping to have some color on this last weekend but we are still sanding the cab, Maybe this weekend? We are both also working our normal jobs and working on this when not doing that so it's like a second job at this point, my work starts doing mandatory overtime this week and every other for the rest of the year I'm told, extra truck money I guess. Gearvendors are sitting on my garage floor at this time too.

    Dust pile resembles my patented method. Apply, remove too much, repeat.

    Education is expensive. Keep that in mind, and you'll never be terribly upset when a project goes awry.

    I'm happy with it, we ended up wet sanding all of it after it had sealer and three coats of color on, the sealer was spitting little goobers all over and we just had to fix that before continuing. Basically then it got shot again with some color and 4 coats of clear. We will let it cure for awhile before continuing, we got hit with dropping temperatures and a little snow here. Got some chassis things we will address, I need to get the mounting wood coated too in preparation for this stuff to go back on the chassis, that'll allow us to do a lot of assembly on the chassis and starts some upholstery during the winter?

    Was checking it all out again yesterday.

    These came in while I was at work today. I don't care what anyone else thinks cause I just absolutely love the color. Can't wait to see it all together with the pile of parts that are waiting. Still tons to do though.
