Thanks guys. It's moving along fairly fast now. We bought it to keep the techs busy when we were slow....... and then didn't get slow lol.

As the body shop owner that let me do all the body work on my 68 C10 last winter his words still ring in my ears. They were "keep sanding".

Update! The car's out of the booth and gleaming in the sun. We ended up going away from the orange and choosing something more sultry. This is Lexus 1J7 Atomic Silver. We chose this color to better accentuate the body lines and curves down the doors.The fenders will come off now so we can refinish the engine bay and start reassembly. We'll also start to cut and rub the car after it fully hardens. We like to open the clear up with 1500 to let it fully gas out, then begin the whole polishing process. More to come!
