Looks much improved.I guess nothing like some fresh paint for the summer and or year!Eventually my car will get that area done,once I get the mechanical stuff done one day.I am chilling right now and Monday I turn a touch older 44.I have to work but at least my company gives us 8hrs personal time to use when ever we like for our birthday(pretty cool) I think.

Here is the masked off pinstripe area ready to be filled in with the red trim
Could have gotten yourself one of these
and removed the pinstripe permanently, though they used to be cheaper 12yrs ago.
Oh Lord Spike!! I have to keep that pinstripe there to keep me straight!! If I didn't have that there it would be one heluva crooked stripe going down the side... LoL!!
Looking good there Orlen. I also wrap my rollers and brushes in a wet rag and then the plastic. Can keep them from drying up for over a week or more.
That is a lot of masking there orlen.Seems you have been busy for sure.I stlll have not been able to mow the last two days due to rain,rain and more rain.I however did replace my garage door seals since the originals well are up to par.Plus some other outdoor trimming,and some pressure washing.Anyway things are looking good and you will get it done I know.
The rain sure has been coming down for sure. Seems we get to pick from heatwaves & fires or lots of rain and floods.
Been on the lookout to see if the State of North Carolina happens to float pass by here!!
That is def a much improved look my friend! Looks great orlen.
I like it, especially the low cost option you used. I hope I get mine painted this summer. I need the inspiration, of course driving my 89 Z24 with the top down on a hot night is also a great motivator too.
Definitely an improvement removing those Atlanta braves stickers. I can send you some stl cardinals stickers to replace those. Lol.
get some black paint for those lines on the left tail light...
Mask both tail lights off and paint them both. They will look like new.
Would like to get a spare set to "play" with. If I screw these up it could prevent my Bird from getting her next inspection, so I'd rather play it safe and wait till I can afford another set. Surfed EBay today and found 6 Tail Lights for sale. I was astonished to find so many. Ha haa , ya know by the time I'm ready to buy I won't be able to find 'em!! It's all OK, I don't be needing to get this completely finished up anyways - it'd take all the fun outta it!! I'm very Pleased & Grateful to have accomplished all I have done this year already!
It's been a Wonderful Year
Not that I expect to find anything, but if I should, are you wanting lights with or without the black lines?
If you get lucky with lines that is Great. Even without the lines I can have a pair to work on and see if I can get them polished up and paint the lines on them. I just don't want to clown around with the only set I have and accidently drop one or maybe screw up and get black paint where I shouldn't - then mess up the lense trying to get the paint back off. Thanks for keeping me in mind in your travels!!
The weather finally Cooperated enough today that the Old Man was finally able to drive the Repainted 'Bird to work. Easily the most fun drive I've had to work in quite awhile!! That '80's styling along with the 2-Tone Treatment really stands out amongst the 90's / 2000X Crowd.
found this while backing up some files so thought I'd leave it here for future reference for everybody Cheap Roll On Paint Job
