The most important, yet least appreciated part of any paint job.I've not stopped , prepping for paint is not exciting . The paint that's going on may well be though . If it works ...and no I'm not saying yet . But I'm getting way ahead of myself , loads of prep to do still , but it's not exciting so i won't bore you . Thanks for all the positive comments by the way , it's really driving me on through my sanding funk
Thanks and yes it is , there are no real wrong ways to build something like this , genuinely I had an idea what i wanted , but the details , not at all .The most important, yet least appreciated part of any paint job.
At least you are creating your own shapes, rather than just repairing the factory's design. I always find that much more satisfying.
Did you use any templates or gauges for mirroring the left and right sides of the body?
I don't even know know what you just said but yeah if you mean its all over the place then yes it's got a real skitzo vibe going on ... Ideas keep happening , it's evolving . I don't even know how it will end up , let's see what falls out of the skip next . I've pulled something from the junk pile , another what if is occuring soon . The paint is coming together on the frame , if I pull this trick off it will be a " you did what with what" moment ? I may need to rub it all back and go again if it don't work , but what's the harm in trying eh.I love the lights and fins. This build is all over the place temporally, late 50's futuristic Caddy wings with modern CNC turned aluminum bits on an art deco frame. It's imagined past futures meeting the present.
