The car is finally painted!

Still a lot of work to do putting the car back together but its well on its way.

The car was painted on Saturday in 40 degree heat. Luckily white isn't susceptible to heat unlike metalics.

Ended up doing Clear Over Base (COB) that while more difficult gives a better result. We used expensive paint and thinners which paid dividends as the finish is really good. The car got 6 coats of base and then 3 coats of clear. The plan is to rub the body down with 2000 grit sandpaper and then buff giving a near glass like finish.
