Day 152

More painting today!  Caroline's return flight home got delayed a few hours which was the perfect amount of time for me to get some things painted and drying while I picked her up at the airport.

The color was VW L29 Blue Gray and it is more or less the VW stock color for primered objects.  The big one here was the gas tank.  I ended up painting the bottom with the top part masked off.  I'll do the reverse next time.  There are also some odds and ends like the arm rest support bar, heater muffler covers under the rear seat, and a piece under the hood that supports the flasher.  The wiring cover and trunk liner are also Blue Gray in this particular year.

Anyway, I'm very happy with the progress and the results. The color turned out GREAT and the painting skill was very good.  No problems with the gun and excellent coverage on the paint with no runs!

I am going to flock the glove boxes and then move onto the wheels painting the inner disc first and then the outer for that classic two tone look!
