    The paint is here, the gist of the process is that with all the body work complete you spray a jet black base coat, followed by a mid coat which is clear with the metal flake mixed in. This is all topped off by a top coat which is catalyzed urethane that hardens all the layers. The paint will be on by the end of the month, after that is all reassembly.

    Did they mention the rough textured finish that upset Nurmix so much? :-)

    Don't you dare, I was super tight on the lack of buffout and wet sanding time. Buffout needs 90 days cure, I had 9 hours, Nurmix can kiss my
