Pretend I'm Gleb; "When did you get tall enough to reach the roof of a car?!"

Hey, like you said, for what it is and what it cost, it look fine, at least over the internet it does. Better not be any over spray(roll) or I'll be picking it off with my fingernails!

I could be wrong but I think when you're going 120 mph (?) down the back straight at Mosport, you won't be thinking too much about the sheen of your paint.
It looks great.............. from here!

Thats what I've been told! Although, I am kind of weird like that... I actually care about how my car looks. My expectations of a racecar that is regionally run is clean and tidy. It may not be as awesome as a professionally built car, but I want it a step above the usual racecar you see at the regional events. If you look at some cars there, you wonder how they get past Tech Inspection. I don't want to ever feel that way about my car. A quick glance at the outside of a car speaks volumes about the inside (for me at least).


So, I finished doing the roof this evening. Again, I had to hold back a bit with my expectations, as I knew it wouldn't be perfect afterall... I mean, I guess I could spend days and redo it all, but for what? Lets just say its a good 5 footer paint job and call it a day

Here is the pits I was talking about in the paint. Once this is sanded down, another skim with a block and it would be pretty straight... assuming I had thick enough paint.



You can see more of the pits here in the light reflection. Across the whole of the roof, the middle is probably the worst for texture, plainly because I didn't really care to try so hard to level it out there since its not that easy to spot. It is visible in the reflection of the tool board.



This is probably the worst spot on the entire roof. In the middle, at the back, just in front of the rear window... this was more of a prep problem, as I just got impatient... Meh.



But from a bit of a distance, it looks good for a track car.

I respect you a lot for wet sanding every time I have done it I **** up and go through the paint and get pissed.

I am scared of it now. I need a test project lol.

^ Haha thanks man. I have an E30 hood if you want it? You could practice on that. I (well, Steve and I) grinded it to make a rusty hood for his grey car a few years back so its a bit wavy... but you are welcome to it if you'd like.

Put the cars original hood back on today... what a heavy piece of shit! A fiberglass unit is definitely on the list in the spring. I'll probably take a crack at molding the second (also rusty) hood that I have... luckily it is a bit straighter than this one.

Starting to look like a car again! Although a parts car maybe with every panel a different colour lol.



Got it all lined up, holes drilled for the pins, and some rubber hose to space the hood up at the back to keep it level.



And the pins found in the shop. Looks good enough! I still might cut out some round plates to rivet on the hood to surround the pin, and transfer them later to the real hood once I get one made up. Pin straight on paint makes me cringe!

Hmm... I can only imagine my gfs face if I brought home an e30 hood.

2002 Turbo sir. Replica, well made, however the part that was used for the mold was a bit short on the sides for some reason, and because of that it doesn't fit at the edges to blend with the line of the fender. I'll have to build that up over winter to make it match up because it drives me nuts. That is why it isn't painted yet.

Haha,
hell yes, they are.

Infact, my original comment read something like " You can make a turd into a princess" followed by the link, but that wouldn't have been nice.

So I just posted a positive comment which would serve your purpose and not make me look like a meanie. Why you gotta go and take that away from me?
