    That looks excellent.. I wasn't aware you could tint it to match body color, really cool... feel like Ive seen some factory and aftermarket paintjobs with that much orange peel

    Looks like it turned out pretty nice. Good to know you can tint it to the color you want.

    The color doesn't look nearly as much like "red oxide primer" in person as it does in the pics. But it's not as bright as the orange paint.

    I'm having a little bit of a dilemma as to where else I should spray bedliner. In the rear I'm done and I sprayed the wheelwells and wheelhouse flaps with bedliner, as well as up in the quarters, around the taillights, and the tailpan and tailpan brace.

    My fenders are 99% complete and I plan to spray the inside of them with bedliner. I also sprayed the bottom of my "fender protectors" with bedliner.

    My inner fenders are custom and are made as two pieces. The lower parts are what the a-arms go through and there's vertical pieces above them that extend down to the front splash pan. The front third is the stock piece from a stock inner fender.

    I'm thinking about spraying the lower splashpan behind the bumper, and all the wheel side of both inner fender pieces. They're not visible when the car is on the ground. There are two "flaps" at the back of the inner fender that are removable. One is a custom one, and the lower one is a stock piece. I might spray both of those with paint since they're visible when on the ground and more so when the wheels are turned. Thoughts and opinions?

    Today I did the final 400 grit sanding on the doors, fenders, and lower inner fenders. I've blocked them until I'm blue in the face, and as far as I'm concerned they're ready for paint.

    I got the passenger fender addressed by using new 320 grit paper and a very light pressure. After a couple coats of primer, all the ripples were gone. I finished up with 400.

    I also finished the ashtray and glove box with one last coat of K36 and 400 grit sanding. I'll have Matt paint them the same time as the dash.

    The upper inner fenders are 90% complete and I still have the tailgate and hood to finish. Both of them are probably 80% done now. I have some odds and ends that I may end up painting myself, but I'm not sure. It's a lot of little pieces to haul to the painter and back. But he does have a booth and I don't.

    Still shooting to have everything ready to paint by the end of June.

    Looking really good, I think the lower splash pan and inner fenders on the wheel side would look great... I kind of like the inner fender area to have a softer sheen than the body... feel like it helps the paint pop more... That's my .02, but I should probably go to bed.. Excellent work!
