Updates are coming in fast…

Remember when I was trying to polish these badboys myself? They looked like this:

…and that was after grinding and sanding away for hours on that RH section. I finally gave up and gave em to Whitby’s to polish while they were doing the Boss’s bodywork and paint. Got a picture back today…

How do ya like those? Beautiful.

Speaking of beautiful… just a few days ago, I received and posted this pic of the body after it had been clear coated. The reflections of the shop lights show a surface that’s uneven and although beautiful, it’s not yet quite right enough…

So the next work they do is to wet sand the clear coat to make it perfectly smooth and straight, despite the 3 colors of paint underneath. Once it’s buffed back up… hoo, boy, does she look even better.

Trunk lid, wet sanded and buffed. Look at those reflections.
Trunk lid again…
Those reflections could not be any more perfect. The lights dont lie…

Thats it for today. Planning on picking up the BOSS 427 on Saturday, Aug 17. Jeff at Whitby’s says it’ll be ready…
