I was a paint refinishing apprentice  (back in my living in Vancouver days... many-many moons ago)  These pictures bring back a lot of memories. (I consider myself fortunate to have learned from one of the best bodyman/painters in the lower mainland)  The painter that you hired is extremely good at his trade!  Lookn forward to further progress photo's...

 I would guess the end of next month Chris. Most of the work happens on the weekends at this time of the year. Soon as he is in final primer we will dry fit all moldings and emblems. Dash, inside tops of doors and trunk need to be painted. When car goes to paint booth he will paint inner fenders, rad support, heater box etc. while garage is clear.

Yi! That is a LOT of time and effort (but the end result should be mirror-perfect, me thinks).

Do you go that fine (800) with base clear? Seems really fine...I stopped at 400 with my car, but it's single stage paint so I'm guessing it applies thicker than base would...
