    Fenders are in polyester primer, and I blocked the hood as well. It already has a really nice layer of (fairly new) paint, so I am just running over it with a block to smooth it out. It's amazing how wavy it is, since it looked great before I touched it.

    Great work Adam. Can’t wait to see color on the body.

    So my goal of end of Feb to have paint came and went. I’m back at it after a month of trying to finish my shop.

    Fenders are getting worked now.

    I got a fun surprise from the UPS man today...

    Fenders, hood, and underside of trunk lid are in 2K primer. Getting close to color! I am always torn on how to go about painting the trunk lid. I know the factory did it with it installed on the body, but that method is a bit sloppy for me, with access to painted areas. I think I'm going to paint and clear the underside now, and then flip it and paint the top with everything else (not installed on the car).

    I hosed some paint and clear on the trunk lid after work today...having a hard time photographing it to get the right color as in person. This is going to be a stunner. What a great color!
