    Adjusted the doors, fenders and hood Saturday. We’ve got the lines and gaps as good as they are going to be. Next Saturday we will put the lower valance on and might have to move things again. 873030BD-C7BD-438D-A6CA-2D0D2FA38C2A.jpeg 7319796C-9BC9-4B8F-A01C-3F5A39FBD632.jpeg 2873CBBF-9004-498B-8366-45B50D772DD7.jpeg B336EB76-A86B-466A-B10E-200431F63B31.jpeg E8E24B91-84BD-4A4C-80CF-0BFB145BBA18.jpeg AD38C6B2-B4B8-4826-9E5B-3A1BBBA3384C.jpeg D3E501C6-BDD0-4E47-A2C1-D4C08D8C45D4.jpeg 4B9DECD3-8803-40CE-A37B-D309307B7206.jpeg

    Considering how these cars were "gapped" at the factory, you have done an amazing job, looks fantastic.

    Thank you very much. We took the hood off then we did doors, then fenders. Put the hood on then had to tweak the previous work a little. We might have to tweak a little more when putting on the lower valance. That will be next Saturday since I am on 12 hour shifts this week for an outage here at the plant.

    It doesn’t look pretty but they are even. DCA36D5D-E265-4A1F-8DB7-F1B9D1788887.jpeg Lower valance on last Saturday and stripes laid out today. That Stencils And Stripes kit didn’t work out very well so we went by my assembly manual. 94D0A532-BA8D-415F-BC4F-F7A69828B1BB.jpeg A975DFD0-A3AE-4D01-8367-56D77E0E4C84.jpeg

    Watch out for tape residue from that white stencilng tape. I just used it and it left residue down the center channel. I had to bury it in clear to fix it.

    So when stripes were originally painted were the spoilers mounted or off the car? If off the car, hiw did they insure the stripes would line up, or did they care?

    Not sure on that question. I would say they laid them out then removed the spoiler to paint like we are.

    It’s amazing how even the first coat of clear brightens the color!
    Looking very nice! :cool:
