    Thanks Ed...I'll gladly pass along the baton to dang near anybody dumb enough to take it..haha..

    Thanks Josh..

    When I buffed it outside, it looks slick as glass in the sun..when I got it in the shop under the florescent bulbs ,I can see some sanding scratches on the hood ....I'm really hesitant about doing anymore sanding and buffing...I'll probably just leave it alone for now

    Also...I've been doing a little bit of the wiring...
    question is my heater switch..I'm pretty sure the low speed is burnt up..
    I can read ohms on high, but not on low...
    the only thing on the switch is (Cole Boston)..I looked a little on the net but cant find a exact match...would anybody have a idea of one that would work...
    I cant read ohms thru the coil...and shining a light inside the ceramic it looks like the coil is broke/burnt in to

    Solid red is a funny color like that. It hides imperfections very very well! It plays tricks on your eyes in the sunlight, just like a bright white. I always wet sand and buff whites and reds in the shade, or in a shop. So many imperfections can sneak by which is good because you don’t need to make it perfect like a darker color or jet black.

    that's good to know Josh...
    I never thought about it like that...I knew white would hide about anything but didn't know red was about the same..
    some of the scratches I'm seeing are from the pre-paint I think..i sanded it all with 400g , then painted...my spec sheet says 400-600g, so I went with 400g thinking it would give the paint more to bite into...
    I havnt seen the same scratches on the fenders though, but when I wet sanded the hood I only used 2000g then buffed...the fenders I used 1500g then 2000g then buffed..
    do I need to go back and hit it with 1500g then 2000g and then buff?

    The scratches can be from shrinking basecoat and go all the way back to the primer even. It’ll continue shrinking back even for months, especially with big temp swings. For a solid color I wouldn’t go passed 400 grit prep before basecoat. And then depending on the orange peel and how much perfection you seek, you can start with 1000 wet on the clearcoat, and then 1500, 2000, and finish with 3000.
    3000 is a simple once over on a da sander so it’s not a lot of extra work, but also not necessary in my opinion, on solid red. It’s all up to your discretion and what you want the finished product to be. Really high end shops will even block wet sand With 400-600 to start and finish with 4000-5000. Nutty I think.

    Ph ...what, you don't like my fuse?....haha.. the glass was cracked on it, so I broke the rest of it off to keep from cutting my fingers...it still makes contact so I stuck it back in to do my ohm tests...thanks for the part number...that looks like it on the one site...the other sight that has it for sale doesn't show a pic of it...

    goodness gracious...I just tried to order this $28.97 switch, and then they tacked on $26+ dollars for shipping/handling/service fee...so I hit delete order....for now
