Hey Art, yes everything is good thanks.The Vega should be nice when done. For removing the under coat on my car i used a small propane torch to heat it and a scraper to remove it,then scotch brite. I did it like this on my tank too but my tank has been bone dry since 1987 so it was all good.

Robert, you have to post pics of it all in primer and torn down, you cant just go from robin egg blue to a nice green perfect paint job without pics, its not allowed...LOL :D

its a build journal, it also makes the rest of us lazy people who dont work on thier cars get off our butts and get motivated..hint,hint :lol:

long time no see, hope all is well.

Nice color. :th:
Are you adding a white "GT" stripe to it or anything?

Its a jaguar color green, applying more coats of color than the paint calls for to get it to darken a little more. its close to British racing green just a little lighter.
The Vega kinda looks like a frog to me so this color fits the car :th:
