I also received my replacement visor for the rear view mirror which was in excellent shape. I also sourced an NOS horn button from the UK which really makes the steering wheel pop and I'm very happy with it!
I did have to repair a broken tab that holds a tar board in the engine compartment. I don't have a lot of pictures of me actually doing work and my lovely photographer helped with that. :)
I also cleaned the garage out with a nice water bath and soap scrub. Trying to remove as much dust, paint remnants, and body filler as I can. Again, at this stage it isn't super critical because most of it will be sanded off anyway. But also better to have it clean just because.
Here's a couple pictures of the areas I block sanded but there are still some imperfections in the panel. Hopefully the latest layer of paint will take care of these, but if not I will do as many coats as required.
Yesterday I was able to get the fenders, hood, and decklid taken care of as well as some small pieces that needed another coat. They all turned out well with no runs. I did get a bit of orange peel which I attribute to the high temperature and thick material.
Today, I finished the doors, body, and top side of the hood. They all turned out very good and I am happy with the results. I saw two runs and again some orange peel. It has been 105-115 degrees here the past few days and although I've been trying to get a good start in the mornings it's hard to avoid the temperatures.
