I keep the Swamp cooler patched up! lol
Its getting old now seams like every year I have to get a Pump for it. Finally cooled off a bit yesterday, but will be back to Scorching with a Vengeance next week so weather man predicts.

Not much to brag about still putting junk on sanding it off. getting better about putting enough on panel. Just more to sand off where its not needed.

I'm down to the last two parts to paint body color. They're repops so I may have issues when I get to final assembly. They're a pretty bad casting, did a bunch of work to them and then sprayed with slicksand. Final sand, prime and paint next.
I called about my wiring harness, they're shipping it Wed, 5 weeks after I ordered it. What's up with that? Did they lay everyone off but one guy?

Not entirely, I would have to put the whole car back together to truly test fit it. I did fit it to the center section and that seems ok. I already put the whole car back together before final paint and I don't have it in me to do that again for these last parts. Worst case scenario I have to respray the parts of them that you can't actually see. Half of it is hidden behind the headlight and headlight cover trim thing.
Everything that needs to be red is now red :goodjob:

These cover half of the other pieces so I should be ok.
