  • so first 'fun' was sanding a run on the inside of the scoop.... blanking amateur painter (and I hope that JA is still following this)

    borrowed the go-jack to make this easier to sand

    and now we're getting there

    as I mentioned yesterday.. this is a 'good enough' paint job. IF I ever use another body shop, I'll be 100% more thorough when I pick up the car.... really, I'm as mad at them as I am at myself for accepting the crap work.... and still, it's a race car - who knows, maybe the next fix will be a nose or tail after I run out of talent.

            given the level of hate I already get from the Optima judges - it'd just be background noise.
            and let's color that - dead f***ing last, 4x running. I lose to stock Teslas....

                  • lots of color sanding

                    did not work well, think I'm going to matte clear the center or even most of the hood (which solves a glare problem) as fix.


                    of course, that means waiting another 3 weeks before I paint to avoid lifting

                        • JMHO, but I would lateral the leading edge of the flat off of the leading edge of the hood to the fender peak line and as that line tapers off, follow the line to the leading edge of the A-pillar... possibly a wolverine slash on the fenders rather than the GS stripes?
