Nice, Shiny Black

 This will be brief.  Before painting starts today, let's check how it looks.  With two coats, it has dried to a fairly good black color.  I must say that it doesn't look as uneven when viewed in person as it does in this picture.  The lighting in the barn makes picture taking difficult.

After a few hours of painting, which goes faster now that the canvas doesn't soak up the paint like it used to, the still-wet paint looks nice and dark.  But if I had it to do over again, I'd be tempted to try the Sherwin-Williams method of dumping a huge bucket of paint over the car and letting it run down on all sides.  It would be quicker.

Be that as it may, I was left with a couple of hours to spend sorting parts and disassembling a few more seat frames from the 300.

You know, I can see you sitting there right now at your computer.  I bet you're a coward.  I bet you don't have the courage, the intestinal fortitude to visit IRM's Train of Terror tomorrow night.   Admit it, you're a wimp.   Or prove me wrong.

I wanna see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black

Yes, we want it painted black.
Just don't paint that red door black!

How about looking in on Michigan 28? Can you show us what those guys are up to lately?
