Prep sanded the clear for my pinstripe guy to layout lines for me. Well worth the cost for me to pay Shane to pre-tape and now I will tape off and paint the 3 colors (chocolate brn, sunrise yellow and southern orange) Then feather and bury the stripes with three coats of PPG clear.

This process is about 30-40 hours but the outcome is well worth it and no future peeling tape stripes and always a good vibrant color.

A few have asked about the finish materials I'm using.. Well with a shortage of CA EPA/ VOC restraints... pigments are a premium and in short supply here now. So I ended up using PPG Global on the bases and clear.

Just paint materials for this job are close to 3800.00 (4 colors and clear with additives) plus epoxy and poly primers, paper, tape, welding, metal and plastics. Where Omni and Matrix come in around 700-1000.00 for the same quantities here in NorCal.

I'm extremely happy with the higher end materials over Standox/Axalta, PPG MBPX OMNI and Matrix MPB that I'm used to shooting for BC/CC on trail rigs.

Gonna be another sweet riding 60!
When you are welding on axle housings is there any concern about warping?

Out in the morning sun.

Windshield for this one and two other builds arrived.

New NON-lockstrip glass gaskets arrived.

*************ON A TECH NOTE... For all those that plan to remove doors and not beat your head against the doors re-aligning after the fact. I drill two holes (sometimes 3) in each hinge before removal. This allows the door to be installed almost identically to the way it was removed and previously installed. Huge headache and timesaver! **************

Cheers!

Jason

Rear 80 full float axle with Trail Tailor 4340 CrMo axles and ARB locker installed. Will go in on Monday. Spin it around, pull the front suspension, motor/trans and Tcase and start on the front coil conversion and LS3 install.

Front locker is built and ready as well.
