Hey guys, I have been encouraged to share a little video posted at Kirban Customs web site that shows progress being made on my paint job.
Some of my body panels are color painted and clear coated. They will still be wet sanded and polished but look great even now.
The remaining panels are next in line so before the month is out I will be re-assembling my build.
still a lot of work to go but I am finally feeling a little better about doing the work remaining. I kinda lost my "head of steam" for a while but this is encouraging.
Have a look:

All my black painted parts are done and look awesome.

I did the bodywork and sanding down to 320 grit on the primer. Darrell Kirban (who was the "D" in D&R) is my cousin and he has a bodyshop where they did final sanding (400, 500, and 600 grit wet sanding) and all the primer and paint. He does nothing but high quality work. It shows. He will be doing the wet sanding of the clear and all the polishing.
Still more to go but no less quality on the remaining parts.
Thanks.

This paint is a solvent paint. I'd have to ask which manufacturer but he has a complete system where he mixes his own colors from a formula. We decided on an Aston Martin titanium mainly because he has painted so many and we agreed this color looks fantastic.
Darrell is connected to a company that restores Aston Martins and he does the body and paint jobs for them. I like to mention one year he did two Astons that were entered at Pebble Beach. One came in first, the other came in second. He's that good.
The problem is I'm so afraid I might scratch or damage something when I assemble them. THEN, I might be too afraid to drive it because I wouldn't want anything to happen to it.

I need therapy.

Ron, great job, as usual! I know what you mean about scratching it. After years of hard work you almost want to put the car in a glass bubble. But....it was made to be driven!

Ron,

That is so cool! You have been one of my inspirations over the years, and will continue to be.

RON, you can apply 2" masking tape. lets say you are installing the rear bumper put a strip on 1/4 . this way, when you'r ling up it wont harm the paint. also you can rub the tape over your pants (over your leg) so its not so sticky

Keith...
I have a video at youtube showing the locations where I bolt the body to the chassis.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QcN4bp24OjQ

Of course that does 't show you HOW to split the panels. It is a lot of work but, as you see, not impossible.
Before you separate panels, determine where the split will be. (DUH)
Then DON'T COMPLETELY CUT THE PANELS APART. Leave short sections attached so the panels will keep aligned. Make a slot along the split line wide enough to insert a flat piece of something like FRP or ABS plastic. Tape completely over that piece with masking tape (so fiberglass won't stick to it) and insert it through the slot. Square-up the panel to the body panels at a 90* angle and secure it there perpendicular to the exterior of the car body. Fiberglass a flange from the body panel over the taped panel on both sides of the flat piece. After the fiberglass cures, cut through the remaining sections along the split line and repeat the process to make the flanges continuous.
Look at my video for locations.
