    Man that looks like fun. I didn't even open up my kit yet, so it's interesting to see what it all looks like! Which one of his kits did you say you wound up getting?

    Why the low compression? Is the motor getting boosted?

    Good progress, man!

    Well from the pictures that do upload for me - the engine compartment looks F-n fantastic - I really like the color and the application - I would of spent a little extra time and cleaned up the engine bay of the larger unused holes - but I have a slight case of OCD - but if your painter can apply that to the rest of the car you'll be 'rocking' - I still want him to explain to me about the wetsanding between clear coats -...what's he using 4000 grit?

    yeah I'd be interested - not that I'm an expert or anything -but that just sounds funny to me - maybe a smal blem or something - with 2000/2500 - and the clear would re-infill it - but the whole car - :confused:.....and then to apply two more complete clear coats - maybe he's found something out that I don't know - get the grit of paper and procedure if you can ...
