Just a few pics to look at while sipping your coffee.
Tomorrow I will clear coat the tin. I also got the headlights installed and wired into
the grill.
Sorry Alan, no video. Way to high tech for me.:smile1:

OH GOODY, a paying job!!!!!:dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana:



Decals won't be ready till Tues. I decided not to clear coat the tin after I tested it
on the battery cover. Something went wrong there, and caused it to wrinkle
on one side. Not sure what, but didn't want to chance it on the rest of the tin.
All the tin was painted weeks ago, and I washed and rinsed that battery cover real well.
I'll have to strip the cover right down, and re paint it. Steering wheel is in the paint booth now.

Alan, notice the headlights. That's as close to video as it gets around here.:D

Will, A-ONE job.:thumbs:

What kind of clear were you using?Clears have a strong solvent.Is it compatible with the type of "base" color you used?

The base is Agco acrylic enamel. Dang, can't recall the make of the clear, but I talked to the paint pro at the autoparts, afterwards, and
he said that it shouldn't have done that. He also said the clear was lacquer based. Sure smelled like it was. The rest of the battery cover
that didn't wrinkle, really didn't look all that much better than the other pcs.(not cleared) Certainly not worth the effort and risk of messing
the rest of the tin up.

I edited your post. When you are adding pics, they can be moved if you 'insert inline'.
