The Best Laid Plans...
At the same time, my 1957 Ford project has hit a snag, paint. I finished the body work, primed it, and shot a gorgeous coat of light blue pearl paint on it, then cleared it. It looked really good, even the wife was impressed. I noticed some light orange peel in the paint so I wet sanded it and of course, I went through. I guess I was a little heavy handed. Well, back to square one. Strip it , reprime it, and I planned to paint it today; except, I can't. I have to repaint the underside of the body with enamel paint which takes forever to dry. So I guess I'm repainting it next week.
What makes these two event worse is, I have the local IPMS show coming up next month and the Mustang is kind of being built specifically for this show. I'm not real sure it will be done. The '57 Ford needs to be done by the end of March, I'm pretty sure it will make it. The next project will be box stock, just to keep it simple!
