Yesterday I I under coated the underneath of the car nd the entire inside from fir wall to tail panel. I used raptor Berliner and it came out really nice. Today I painted the fie wall so I can drop the body on the frame within the next few days then I can tart the electrical and pluming while I wait for my buddy to start final sanding. The ball is tarting to roll.
