Thanks guys. I am taking a bit of time off this weekend to get prepared for winter on the property. I did manage to do a bit of assembly on the rear of the car before the body is attached to the chassis. I will try to get a pic up later today.

Ordered my Upol Raptor Liner kit for the floor pan today. I will be spraying that this week and preparing the body for attachment as soon as all my new gaskets and seals arrive. Maybe the body on the pan this weekend.

Thanks for the kind words and Thank you West Coast Metric. I got all my seals on Fri. Weeee. So today I put in the deck lid seal and the front trunk seal. I also got the rest of the Raptor liner sprayed on the inside of the car's front bulkhead. I also undercoated in the rear.

I bead blasted the master cylinder and also the pedals then painted the pedals. Got everything hooked up before I had to perform a yoga position to get them in when the body was attached. If you have ever replaced pedals, you know what I am talking about.

Tomorrow after noon, the pan meets the body for the first time in a while. I got busy this past few weeks and need the shop space. So I am kind of advancing my schedule a bit. But, I will be able to work around it.

I also found a guy not far who says he can handle the windshield chop. Weee. I ordered new aftermarket glass for it.

Um,,, did you leave a red strip under the rear apron for a reason? Or is that an actual red stripe?

But I'm liking the whole thing Mike!
Now what's the design for the front hood gonna be?

Carlene,

It is a red stripe that separates the black and green. :)
No art on the hood. All black. The art is under the hood with the other details.

Do you still plan to use the custom cog emblem on the hood?

Dammit, slow it down and stop doing such badass artwork! You're making us look bad!

Bang up job as always!

Question, since you live a generally cold area and you seem like you know your stuff when it comes to paint. What temp activator did you use for your paint? I ask cause I'm using a med temp, 70-80. My 70-80 temp days are numbered. Should I worry about anything if I heat my garage but the temp isn't exactly 70. Say 65. Wont it just cure a little slower and perhaps make my paint lay flatter.

I use mid temp. I spray between 58-68 range for the most part, even with heat. I like it slower, it flows better. I just give it more time between coats. Not much wetsanding needed when it flows out nice.
