Yes, at 51 I need glasses! Right now I'm finishing the seam between the deck lid and the cockpit.

The special tool I'm using is a bondo spreader with 120 grit stuck to both sides. This gives the perfect paint stick gap.

Now, Jack and I are sanding the front hinge posts. This will take half a day to make them nice.

A little sanding here, a little pinhole there...

And then urethane primer. Remember, we use dolphin gray as a color to mix in with the primer. This base of gray keeps cover coat to a minimum and makes the chips harder to see.

Chief painter at work again.

This coat will be block sanded with 220. Tomorrow, the car will get one final coat of primer and Friday I'll shoot the silver.
