From an owner of 4 Rocky's in the process of rebuilding I can agree with Frank. You put us to shame with the effort going into this build Woody.
The paint looks nice. I wouldn't worry about the durability of it right now; it takes a solid month for the paint and all the hardeners to cure properly. Just don't put any wax or polish on it until then.
Ok now my sincere opinion. What a beauty this will be when it's done. It's F'n gorgeous and those shipments that arrived will be stellar on this gem. I said earlier, this is my favourite paint combo / style for these Blizzards. I'm glad you stuck with it!
So, in my defence for the slow progress of my builds, all the usual excuses and I can't help but waste so much time trolling the net for the white whale which prevents the work from getting done on the other "off-white whales" that I've already acquired.
On a side note and I only bring it up because I know you can ALL relate to my state of excitement; I'm on a work course about 6 hours from home and my wife sent me a text message yesterday during a lecture. "There is a big-a$$ box that just showed up at our door. It's from BC so I just put it with your collection." SWEEETTT!!!!!! And this is what slows the process of restorations ......... collecting. I can't wait to get home!!!!! (obviously to see my wife
This build is making me feel like I need to re-focus and git-er-done.
There are no mistakes, only learning curves.
