65 Valiant update with paint !

Ok, finally some pics. I matched the stripe to the glove box lid and it came out great. After the first 2 coats of clear, I let it dry for about 4 days, then wetsanded with 1000 grit and laid down 2 more coats. I have been doing this for blacks to minimize buffing. In this case, it has made the stripe impossible to feel too. The 40K mile original window rubber was perfectly reusable, and the new lockstrip arrived. Next, the drivetrain swap will begin ! It sure has been convenient to have it running and mobile thru the paint process, but it's V8 time ! I already fired the 318 on a stand and it's nice and healthy. I will hopefully buff and install trim this week before I leave for the nats.
