    I'm Almost done with the sanding I need my wing to wet sand...:banana:.. I had polished the right side of the car but i left out a few little specs on the clear where i didn't sand and man you can tell big time... so i went back and did those small spec i just need to go over it again. I had done a light pass with the buffer and looks good but need to go over it one more time.Better move slower and make sure i do it right than speed up.. Its my first time so dont want to fudge up.... Then move on to the next step of the polishing.....

    The car is really looking good. I like both the hood and the gas tank ideas.

    i Want to see it and actually hear it too......


    I have a question about my sump tank.. I have the one that has two 1/2 fittings ,shouldnt one be higher than the other one for the return?I bought a npt to an fitting and seems that it does not go in all the way it has like about inch thread an goes in like 1/2 to 3/4 in. Is that normal? I tought it was the treads on the holes because it had some stuff from the sealer i put in the tank. But i cleaned them out with a threader chaser/cleaner..still does not go in all the way... Help please.....

    I was outside put my back bumper on permanetely now.had it loose when i painted because wanted to get a little under the original position and i knew i had to get in there when i did my cleaning of the treads.. well i also put my trunk brackets or springs whatever its called. The paint stuff is like 90% done need to wax andneed to do two small touch ups. my cowl vent cover and my tail lights.. I want to overhaul my tail light started sanding them so i can paint the black trim around the red.... then polish them with my headlight polishing kit..see how it turns out...Need to look for my vacum diagram what i actually need and domnt need.....well ive had a long day have to stop in the garage...Have bartending training tomorrow...
