I think they look very smart!, looking forward to seeing how they turn out, after your wife has painted them.

That foam reminds me of Bubblegum I used to buy as a kid btw lol.

What ya all think ?....... Going to go ahead and wet sand one more time, Then one more coat of paint. Windshield Is started... Just a ton of detail stuff left to do and the rear deck that will cover the electro's. Great thing about the interior is it didn't add much weight.

Thank you "joker"....Lets see, 2 clear coats,Inside and out. I believe it was 3-4 coats primer," I sanded a ton of it between coats" and 4 coats of paint top deck and 3 on the bottom,"wet sanded between all coats of paint". I went with the really fast drying medium priced rattle can black, I did have it drying to fast as hot as its been. It's Was real hard to do 50% overlap while spraying keeping it wet enough that it could flow and not pick up over spray texture look. I think I need to use a lil longer drying paint or spray in the morning when its a bit cooler. And yep, She is a very good painter. She loves to help me with the builds, and always wants to help and gives me great advice. She loves her rock crawler too.

Totally wasn't happy with paint job Or body work.....................Stripping it down to do it right,OR at least as good as I can do. wet sanding it all as I go. Black is sexy but it sure did show the poor quality of body work I did. Hope to bring it up to speed like a boat should look.
