As I said before, the porosity in the surface of these parts left a little to be desired. There was no need for the company that built the 904s for Porsche to make these parts perfect. These were race cars, not show cars. Our problem, or shall I say, the problem between what the customer wants versus what the car provides (in the original state), is day and night. As I always explained, we walk a narrow trail to keep both the car and customer happy.

Jack and I did the final sand on Sunday and I painted it at lunchtime today.

These pictures show the color being a gray tone, but they are actually satin black primer. Tomorrow both 904 tails go right side up and I start block sanding for gray primer. Hopefully, by the end of the week we'll be shooting silver.
