More.
Fucking.
Sanding.

Engine bay is finally done. Jesus that was probably the worst part of this.


roughing up any bare metal - this is the last part before I can epoxy coat


welded the stupid antenna hole shut


and mounted the side skirts since the holes will get primed and be rust proof

thanks, can't wait to be done with the painting..

Scuffing everything with the 80 grit as a last step. NO SHINY METAL!




got most of what I can with the DA sander.. gonna have to switch to the manual method to get the small nooks and crannies.

Hopefully primered on friday and raptor liner on saturday.

OH LOOK, MORE FUCKING SANDING!

Made some square holes to take a break and keep me sane.


Cut the rear bumper tab so I can run some fancy wheels later without rubbing on stuff. I'll roll them after they get epoxy coated so they don't get missed.



scuffed the entire belly, front and rear wells on the passenger side.
Probably another 2-3 hours of scuffing and then I can pressure wash it for the final time before paint. Should be masking saturday morning, prime saturday afternoon and raptor coat sunday.

thanks, I hope I cut enough off of the rear fenders.. would hate to have to do it again after I epoxy coat everything.

Finally finished sanding and scuffing!
gave her a pressure wash (inside too) so I won't have to work so hard to get it cleaned up later.

Epoxy coat tomorrow, raptor liner on sunday!
