The NOS trunklid is no longer in rough delivery primer... used 60 grit out to 600 grit to prep for sealer. Tonight more sanding and sealer. Tomorrow morning, we try and get some basecoat down.

Coat 4. After it flashes off completely, I will wet sand a little. No, the lid hasn't been body worked, as that was not the intent. It will be covered in like paint and layers so that I can body work the entire car later.

The internet said my paint gun was terrible for auto paint. WRONG! I set it up as my paint buddy told me to and it did great! Almost no drag on the 2000 grit sandpaper. Only flaws were one bug and the lack of body work. Tonight, clear coat!

Three coats of clear. Next up for this lid will be lots and lots of elbow grease! After it cures... 600, 800 and 2000 grit then color sand, cut and buff.
1st light coat


2nd wet coat

The clear really woke that up... Body work needed or not, the paint looks damn nice.

Once I removed all the masking I found out that the respray was a lot more gray than the original spray. Thinking on that, I probably should not have thinned the paint that was in the can as it was already thin and I didn't realize that.

Still sorting how to reverse engineer the rear end of the car without destroying the structure.
