Re: My 50 roadster pickup build

Was in the shop for a couple hours today and got some work done.

Pic 1 & 2 Have the freshly painted parts covered to avoid overspray.

Pic 3 Fender back on horse.

Pic 4 Inner panel mounted.

Pic 5 Can't see any difference, but it has been wet sanded with 600 paper and ready for paint.

Hope to show more tomorrow...Jim

Re: My 50 roadster pickup build

Back in the shop today, for a couple hours, all I got done was 400 wet sanding of right fender, had some scratches that 600 wouldn't take out. Sanded it 3 times with the 400, but it's good to go now...Jim

Got some more work done today. Really like how I'm getting something done each day, hope nothing upset the apple cart.

Pic 2 Ready for paint, I had wet sanded the hood again to remove some scratches.

Pic 3 Mark painted the parts.

Pic 4 & 5 are close up's of parts.

Hope to have some more tomorrow...Jim

Re: My 50 roadster pickup build

Jim, I forgot just how Picky you really are! I don't have the patience you have because I might have quit before the Final Cut and Paint your doing. That is why your Truck is SOOO Nice you don't Quit Until it's Time.

Re: My 50 roadster pickup build

painting is a patience thing, I am always too excited. what I am saying is I would have painted these parts 4 times by now and every time would have been wrong. so nice work!

Thanks joe, I know what your saying, years ago I had to make myself slow down, to get it right. I can still paint, but I let Mark do all the painting now, he's good...Jim
