Well... an Epic Fail on the first try at Spraying a Clear Coat. Looked good after spraying final coat. Went back a couple hours later and HUGE RUNS pooling up around the holes. Chalked this up to just using the garage lights to see what I was doing and putting on too thick a final coat.
Stripped it again and started over. Used my 1400 Watt 2 bulb Halogen Tripod Work Light to see what the #@%^ I was doing.
Viewed from the side straight on....
3/4 View from back showing end curved portion....
Not perfect, you can see a small scratch/dent where the recess for the shock is. This was under the OME paint. Didn't want to take the time to file it out as it was fairly deep and on a multi curved surface. I didn't know if I could remove enough metal and still keep the proper curves so I just left it.
Time to run up to see where my parts stand. Hope some are in or I may be having my mechanic cancel some orders and go with other vendors and parts.
Cool man, I'm glad it's finaly coming together. One of my favorite mods is the kellermans http://www.newthruxton.com/html/kell...n_signals.html, Small, BRIGHT and really well made, get compliments on them all the time.
I've heard good things about the acewells but I prefer anolog gauges, do you not like the minis?
Really stoked to see how the exhaust is gonna come out.
