I'm sure some people would let you entertain yourself on their cars if you love it that much, lol

Really I was hoping you guys would think I'm nuts and offer to help to protect my car from me. 😀

Now that is something I haven't considered but not immediately opposed to and will give it some thought as I continue my insanity of wet sanding away

Hey John, pretty soon you're gonna feel the urge to start taking lower valances off, mirrors off, sunroof felt off, wiper blades off, etc.... but be careful as that is a slippery slope.

Whether you are still driving it around town now or not, is not mine to judge, but I'm guessing based on your prowess, that you have no problem grabbing milk from your local market,... and giggling when a neighbor gets to say "I see you've got a bit more done there Johnny!"... All great to think about ... (at least in its current state of progression, you can still drive it!)

But eventually you'll have to make a decision on how to finish the wet sanding along all the transition edges to all those pieces/areas mentioned above. Now might be a good time to make a connection and start a dialog, either with a buddy who has a paint booth, or with a paint shop that would be willing to make that final spray you'll need. Take them along on the journey with you too. It will make for a wonderful ending.

.... unless of course you are building that paint booth yourself in your own garage. Which I would NOT put it past you to give that a go!

Keep up the enthusiasm & stoke!!

Steve my friend from afar our minds work alike what you lay out above has been my plan all along. My son in law has a good friend who owns a body shop many years of experience and will do the body work and the respraying buffing ect I will do all the tear down and reassemblingand most if not all prepping. Believe me I have made paint booths in the garage before wife not happy but to paint bikes. I may decide to do the door jams front fender wells though myself. Thank you for the support from DC all you guys are great

Looks like it was sold by Tiffanys?! . One of my favourite colours! German standard Colour, RAL 6027, is very close!

Keep us posted!

The journey continues. It appears who ever painted Talia blue was more ambitious when they sanded the front fender.
