    Took the fender in today to get sand blasted and gave it to my body guy to do his magic filling in the spot welds. Next is to the powdercoating shop to do his magic.
    I’m leaving for Puerto Rico on Tuesday for a much needed 2 week vacation from all this BS and body guy is dropping it off to see how it comes out.
    If it looks good EVERYTHING is getting PCoated when I’m ready!!!!

    Have a good vacation! I'm wrapping up my two weeks on Monday. We didn't go anywhere exciting, just worked on the rust ranch. Finished up putting down new flooring in the kitchen, the started the living room floor this afternoon. Pulling carpet is the pits.
    I'm looking forward to seeing how the powder coating comes out.

    The orange reminds me of my folks last CJ5 Renegade. Looks great on the frame!

    Thanks gm, my body guy wants to take it now and wet sand it and see if he can sand/buff out the orange peel and get it powder coated with another coat of clear.
    He's thinking the clear PC might be a little tough to wet sand but we'll see what happens,
    I personally think it looks good enough now.

    It will be smooth as glass after wet sanding, then the clear powder coat will keep everything looking good. You'll have a slick ride when it's all done. I can't wait to see it all together.
    I'm shooting for Sunday to start cutting out the driver's side floor on the wagon. I've put it off for too long, besides you all are making me look sad for not making any progress of my own.... The welders all tuned up, and I have got a big stack of cutting disks, so no excuses.
