Go Dave !

Great shop to paint in. I got high as a kite last time there huffing quick dry primer fumes while Dave painted the driver's fender.

Paint it, paint it, paint it Black !

It will be ONE color, it'll be VERY industrial, I got several different idea's floating in the void. I got a good week's worth of prep to do. It will not be a final paint job, as I ain't several grand to drop on paint, but I want to make the car alittle "better" looking.

Dave, if you are going to do it yourself, look into the Summit brand single stage paints- Should be Very doable at home...

Guy down the road from me painted his whole 66 chevelle out in his driveway last year doing a panel at a time- turned out VERY respectable.

I am doing it, at home. Like I say, this will be a "Industrial" job.


I just need to decide on a scheme. Summit Brand is looking good price wise.

it's a shame to leave all that nice bodywork you did in primer, it's time you painted it smile
Industrial eh ? confuse

I'm not going green, as that will prolly be the finished color someday.

I have researched the summit brand ,and will use it due to budget constraints. I've used the epoxy with no problem.


I got something else in mind, something I've alway's wanted to do, that I haven't seen.

are you gonna get a visit from Xibit from West Coast Customs?

"Dave- we heard you like to post whore on the internet, so we put keyboards all over your car!- and put TV monitors under the hood so you can keep the post count up while pulling the engine! "

Don't for get to act pseudo surprised and jump around and hug him when he knocks on your door, and then you have to do the same after they reveal the car to you.

Try not to act surprised when they've added a BMW front end gold vinyl interior to it or something :)


Awwwww yeah...
