    Just do the bottoms first. Seal, paint, clear. Let them dry for two days. Prep the tops, mask the bottoms and start painting shooting the rest of the car. Sealer (wait 1 hour) , stripe color down the center (wait one hour), set hood and decklid in place and lay out stripes. Remove hood and decklid and finish taping edges and fully masking off stripes. NOW CALL IT A DAY ! 2nd day. You are going to need to do a little light sanding on the over spray (we should have another phone chat for that). Shoot body color, unmask stripes, shoot clearcoat.....

    Thanks.
    That'll be much easier I think.
    Last time we chatted, you had said I'll need to "scuff" off the over-spray with a gray scotch brite pad.
    That still the case? Or.. does the master have still more to teach this Padawan learner?

    Gray SB is good but where the overspray is heavy you want to hit it with some 600 dry.....maybe using the SB as a backing pad...…...NEVERMIND! I'LL JUST COME OVER THERE AND DO IT MYSELF...…...da bat

    The Spray Booth is about 1/2 done. It's up, the seams are all sealed with duct tape, and a bunch of led strips for added lighting. The leds, along with the main shop lights.. and ... the ambient light from the open garage doors (I'll be spraying during the day) provide plenty of light to see what I'm doing. There's more light than it looks in the photos due to the auto white balance of my phone camera. Still need to seal in my blower fan and the hvac filters. That'll be tomorrows project. Tonight.. Beer-o-clock.

    The light at the end of the tunnel is in sight! I just hope it's not an oncoming train

    Just ordered this from Amazon.
    It says will render the wearer totally invisible to all people named Jeff.
    I should be safe now.

    OHHHHH Your in for it now. Obviously you haven't learn this lesson:

    You don't tug on batman's cape
    You don't spit into the wind
    You don't pull the mask off that old lone ranger
    And you don't mess around with the Jeff

    Nice knowing ya.
