First coat of epoxy this week and I got some new aluminum interior handles for my custom door panels, I couldn't use the plastic RS Ones so I found these, nice build quality!

Lol, yes but it's epoxy primer so it's very forgiving. For the next year I'm sorting out the driveline and finishing getting it back to longhood before I repainted it Viper Green (I'll use a friends paint booth for that and clear)

This step is just to get it "presentable" as a matte white outlaw look. The flattened epoxy looks pretty good with all the black accents. FYI I have painted many cars over the years in single stage, in not so great environments, you water down the floor, and then lay enough paint down to be able to wet sand out any imperfections, then buff it well and it looks like a million dollars.

30 years ago in high school I learned that from a buddy's dad who use to street race in the 50's in Chicago, they would use paint brushes to paint thier cars with automotive paint, right on the street, then wet sand and buff. He had one of his original Willys that was painted 30 years earlier and it looked really good still. CRAZY!

Back in the day we sprayed my old Datsun 510 in my garage, but we used many coats of good ol lacquer, so everything sanded right out and it looked amazing.
I was trying to fig out if we missed a step and that you painted it a really cool version of semi-matte.
My 911 is a single stage paint job, another case of doing all the work outdoors. But I'm no body/paint guy and you can tell if you get a little to close.

Found them in the U.K. from a Mini supplier, not too bad a price either

So fun to drive, the turbo boost is so addictive! A few finishing touches and it's ready for the show on Thursday.

My son and I are off to our first car show today at work. The side stripes bring it all together! Need to finish my custom door panels, but overall she's looking great!

Successful 60 miles of driving today, stayed at 95C, great oil pressure and no oil leaks showing up. Ohhh and the turbo pulls hard starting at 3300! Great day!

Great couple of days with the car. Finished my door panels last night, went to a show today worth my son and took the car to show Hans (the 85 year old German guy I bought the car from)... he loved the way it turned out and was all smiles when we took a drive in boost!

Here is some video my buddy took from his Cobra on the way to Cars & Coffee yesterday morning... Love the boost! The car cruised so well down the highway and the sport seats were so comfortable. It is a blast to drive!
