thanks josh, there is a lot of dust in the paint. im used to respaying cars in a workshop and i normally get 6 to 8 spot in it. when are u coming down to do the gas tank, ill take u for a drive...


thanks for your help shannon, great job. i wonder what temp the car will run on in 41 degree heat?
will be rubbing it back tomorrow and get the buff out for a while till it gets too hot.
i dont understand why u need to wear suits for the wedding, shorts and tank top sounds good to me

Depends when you are back from the honeymoon and you are back into the swing of things. I figured you would be back to your normal routine of things by February.

the clear went on 20 mins after the last silver coat.
41 degrees here today so will get a bit of polishing done before its too hot
polishing wont be finished before the wedding but u cant control the weather
handles go on late this morn, then get the block power flushed just after lunch
rego at 9am today. still needs full detail after and a couple of small cruises

i love sa's walk in rego setup, there at 9am paid my $220 for seasonal reg (so i can leave unreg for up to 9 months) and walk out with 3 months rego, it hasnt been rego'ed for over a year (doesnt matter if it been out of reg 10 years here)
radiator is in now, with a filter to catch the loose scale in the block, dont want the clean radiator getting blocked again.
mirrors and handles and door trims on next then off to get block flushed
