I chose to use the least perfect of my two GM SS hoods (keeping the honey for car #78). Little did I realize at the time but this puppy has been a real bitch.. little tweaks in a few tough to fix areas.. I'll get her though Wink

Its over on the right in the lime green House of Color primer.

I couldn't sleep at night with the doors the way they were ( thin white and a few burn throughs) so I redid them and now they are way good.

The nose is final primed and needs blocking and finess before final paint... I can see a light at the end of this tunnel... can't wait to get the car back into my garage and finish installing the interior!

I guess we are all a bunch of wierdos because every novice guy that sees this car gives me a look like I'm a kook when I explain the flag poles and trailer hitch etc confused

Wait'll they see the giant stickers and pin + nose stripes roll

Dude! The car looks great! I am not sure about the height of those flag poles. Do you want the flags visible from the lunar surface? LOL
What are you using for primer? It looks like the EDP.

Looking most excellent!!!

When do you think you will be painting the nose? Will you paint the nose stripe with the front end assembled, or in pieces?

I think you might want to remove the flag poles unless you want everybody think your related to Corky from Life goes on roll Just teasin Bro!!! Your Car is stunning!!! Most of the parts finally came in today for my carSmiler BTW, Cliff said the Dash pad was correct. It is the same exact color as the original one that was on the car. So that was a helluva Score for 42 bucks plus shipping yea

I think they'll look good stuffed up you clowns a.............aaah never mind roll

Listen. I followed Mike Lakins directions to a tee and used Ed F's templates etc... some things that don't match Charlies are much too late to correct..but I'll bring a hack saw to Carlise with me and you brain surgeons can choose a length that makes you happy Wink

Good for you on the dash pad Tom.. great score!

Steve. I'm painting it all apart, hoping to mismatch the stripe ever so slightly like GM did, hoping to show black on the inner fender structure and hood lip and finally hoping the white ( being a new thinned batch painted at an entirely different shop...3 months later) will mismatch ever so slightly as GM did on occassion...

weird enough for you? Razzer

Gary. Its called NAPA Complete primer-surfacer. part # TP522. Its high build, straight to metal and sands down awesome fast with 180 then 220. The good part is that its a hard 2 part and its shiney.. after the first cut the low spots show flagrantly which is absolutely perfect for a novice like myself..The bad news is a gallon with the fixins is just over $300.00.. luckily theres enough for the whole car
