    After sanding we found a couple of small imperfections I wasn't happy with so I fixed them and epoxy primed again. It will be ready for paint after a little wet sanding with 600.

    Looking great. Can't wait to see mine in that condition.

    Do you have renderings of the finished car? Love to see what you have in mind.

    Today I sprayed a couple of coats of SPI Universal clear. The next step will be to wet sand and lay out the stripes and spray more clear.
