Re: 68 Vert stored 21 years
I've not seen you post on this thread before. I'm on my second year on the Camaro. Year and a half on the body at AutoBody at a tech school in Tacoma. Teacher Doug for my class is a grouchy ol bodyman who has done more than a few show cars in the day. I swear he put dents in my car at night because he used to walk up, says "lookie here" on some new ripple I'd missed, etc. I'm not perfect but I am shooting for perfection in my first attempt at this. The teacher for the other class, Bill retired. New guy Joe is on board, comes from a shop specializing in Chevy Muscle cars. Paint guru by specialty, has a 69 Camaro Ragtop, several Chevelles. If I miss something, these two guys keep me straight. Anyway, now closing in on this, last full coat of primer is on the pig.
Yes, longboarded with 180 until I could not stand it any longer, then a few more weeks at it, more primer coats then repeat.
Yes, have some longer blocks I am using on the 400 wet sand, pics shows me with 6" soft pad
Yes, will do 600, that comes up next
Lot of metal flake in the Rallye Green paint. Have engaged Joe and Doug on painting the car apart in both booths, vs loosely together, vs jammed, assembled and gapped etc.
