Probably sooner than that.  I have some underside cleaning to do and then just finish prep for paint.

Oh and this was last week...

I've been sandblasting in the paint booth this week.  Absolutely miserable job.  I found the only way to keep sand out of my eyes...

I have safety glasses on under the goggles as well!

Sandblasting is a nasty task outside of a cabinet for sure. Have you tried a hood style over a hard hat? It can be a pain in the butt if you have to stick your head inside of somewhere.....like the internals of a car, but I have never had much problem with it getting in my eyes at least.

Of course with your get up, you could always try out for a spot in the next start wars film  :grin:

Tahiti blue is such a great color!

If his subs and engine are already done, he'll be back on the road by spring.....

Theyre done. I do think I need to pull the rear one apart though as I might have overitghtened the front mounts against the bushings, they appear ever so slightly squished but its enough to make it half a bolt hole narrow when lining it up to the old shell.

Dan, loving this work!!

Yeah PORd them and the bottoms got epoxy where the frame and skin press together. Keeps it preserved from moisture.  I'll slosh a little POR in there tomorrow to cover anything towards the bottom I might have missed where the epoxy spreads out.

It's a good thing you're not subjected to drop-in visits by OSHA. If so, they'd be all over you like a cheap suit due to your choice in footwear.

Went well considering it's been a few years since I've done one.

Well that's a wrap on this one.

You do excellent work, paint looks great!
