Busy early last two days, final sand of epoxy primer, and wash off wipe down then this morning sprayed epoxy sealant coat, pulled plastic from primer work.  Have several drips from bad tip in gun that will not always seat and some from me dripping sweat on flat areas that will have to touch up sand and blend in primer edge at w/s sides of cowl but getting there.

Primer repairs completed, tip on gun was bad and have fixed that.

Been scuffing the fresh areas since epoxy base has hardened and dressing up the painted areas readying to shoot the real color to the machine. Weather has been all too hot and or humid to do that where Mon/Tues/or Wed will be as close as can get for awhile.

Will be spraying early of a morning when below 70-75 and humidity down working to be completed before 9am and heat of day sharply rising.
Between the hardener and hot flash reducer need to be done spraying color by 80-85 degrees. Clear has to be on within a few hours of color final spray.

Going back with the original Blue Metallic but adding Phantom Gray Metallic on the fender areas of hood
Once rebuild rear fenders they too will be that gray.

Weather Liars did it again, predicted M,T,W to be reasonable all last of last week, then last night ALL changed, Rains setting back in so after it today, last of scuffing done, water washed followed with a reducer wipe down for loose paint dust.  Last up, around 3:30/4 in the morning will tack cloth the truck and lay paint.

Have Doc appt week from Monday, secondary visit to get hearing aids cleaned(earpiece Filters) and Friday the 19th going to retrieve drive tires in Oklahoma., Rains predicted all the in between days so not a alternative.

Update, Weather Liars missed by 24 hrs, Rained last night and into early morning, 90+% humidity this morning with dew dripping off my shop sides and gutters outer surfaces.  Threw in the towel until at EARLIEST Wednesday.  NOT in the mood to waste $2200+ in paints to have a orange peeled mess.
