Day 227

Can you say three month hiatus?

Such a shame, but sometimes life gets in the way.  My motivation level also needs to be up there to get good work done.

Got the last fender color sanded and buffed today.  Still had some issues with burn through.  I think it is a combination of over aggressive sanding and a thin paint layer.  The more I reflect on it, it appears I had some dry spray and probably had too fast of a gun speed.  Considering I only had 1 run to sand out I think I was overly cautious which lead to other issues.  Live and learn!

In other news, I also bought a close numbers matching engine in Illinois.  We were there for Scott's graduation, I rented a car, looked at it, and bought it.  Then drove it to Caroline's uncle's house for safe keeping.  He then dragged it to northern Michigan and I disassembled it there with Caroline's Dad Shawn.

We boxed it up and then drove it down to southern Michigan where it awaits my next move.  I'm thinking I'm going to take it a piece at a time back home.  I'm also thinking of getting a large piece of luggage and putting it in there.  I don't know if I can trust it to be shipped.

I decided on my vinyl colors, just waiting on the company to get to it!

That's all for now, hood is next to be buffed!
