yeah i do need to move my lighting but that wasnt the issue in this case.  No big deal, when i painted my 67 with this stuff i had to do it twice because of runs on my sail panels and general first time mistakes that come with painting in 20x9 carport lol.  Ill hit it with the 400 block when its dry...I just had already went over it pretty good with 320 so i think i just got to a point where it was not fully cured. Its enamel so it doesnt always dry the fasted even with hardner

went much much better this time around. Spent the morning sanding everything then i hit it with 3 coats. Amazing what setting your gun to the proper operating PSI will do. I also remember to actually mix the paint before mixing it with hardener and such. So the sheen is way different.  I still have to paint the scoop inserts but they need some work as well as the inner areas of the trunk and fenders.

thinking about getting some Matte Black plasti dip and doing the standard mach design black out of the hood. Minus the pin stripe as thats too much taping. Kinda a ghost look on the satin.

Thoughts?

Finally got back to work. So i was all ready to go and remove the intake and it was a giant pain in the butt!!! The distributor is stuck in place, everything is in the way. I had to use a pry bar to break the manifold free. But ive got it off and cleaned. Next comes installing it but i need to wait on a couple parts. 

Weiand 7515 Intake came with the car so i did test fit it and leave it in place to prevent dust

On the bright side..Engine looks clean
