Painting Begins

Welcome back. The next step is to make the fiberglass look good again by repainting it. I should have done this before lowering the body back down, but oh well - I needed to get the car off of the lift. After sanding, cleaning, masking, and cleaning again, several coats of semi-flat black will be applied to all visible areas of the fiberglass, then the panels will go back on.

Speaking of panels, I discovered a slight dent in the left fender, so it went to Houston along with the right quarter panel. After the fiberglass is sorted, the right fender will need to be addressed as well.

#3281 as it stands now - relegated to less-transient quarters in the far bay.

The louvres and engine cover have been cleaned and painted...

... And the pontoons, in the midst of painting.
