    I spent the entire day over at Matt's shop today from about 9 to 5:30 masking the car off to paint the rear. I can't believe how much time it takes to do this stuff even with both of us working on it. We completely masked the fenders and doors except for the BelAir "stripe" down them. I masked off the inside of the fenders where I sprayed bedliner so they will be ready to paint orange when the time comes. The doors were pretty simple, but the rest of the car was a lot of work. Since I sprayed the inside of the quarters and taillight area all of that had to be masked off. So now everything is masked and ready to shoot the tan color tomorrow. He thinks we should be able to unmask it by the end of the day. I forgot my camera so I took these with my phone turning it both ways...now I'm not sure which was which.

    Masking everything off sure is fun isn't it!! Worth it in the end to do it right though. Looks great.

    Yes, it's a lot of work. Unfortunately there's a lot more to go. Once we un-mask the car today we have to mask the tan to spray the orange. We don't have room to turn the body upside down in the booth with the doors, fenders, and hood in there so we'll have to spray the underside of the hood and the bottom of the car and firewall separately. That means we have to mask all of that off to spray the rest of the car. The top of the hood will be gloss clear and the bottom matte clear, so the top will have to be masked to spray the bottom. Same with the body....the whole body will need to be masked to spray the bottom orange with matte clear. I didn't realize how much extra work there was for 3 colors and 2 types of clear. Lots of steps.
