    Some of my parts had a date with the sand blaster, blasted quarter extensions, gas tank straps, door hinges, tail lights, mirrors, headlight buckets, Some other stuff too I can't think of..primed the front valence and drivers door along with all those misc parts.. Whole car besides drivers door and front valence are now blocked down to 320 grit.. Then we're ready to prime again- block to 500 and paint.

    Took it on 150 mile drive to meet tanners1 (Sam) and Dono (Don) and his son Dillion. Nice cars and even nicer guys. Was a good trip despite the sprinkle.

    Everything is now blocked to 320! Primed the shell, a door and front valence today so I can block those down to 500... Sooooo damn close!

    Going to have to get blocks to put my jack stands on.. Hard to shoot primer under the rockers & the stands are the highest I'd want tem to be at.. Don't want to miss a spot when painting... ( can't get under due to air hose coming out the bottom of the gun and it doesn't flex on sharp angles )

    Got the last of the suspension and control arms out. And picked up new rotors/calipers/front Suspension ready to start re-installing it.

    Mental note for next time. remember to take the car too a car wash and clean it before starting any work
