I just painted it again. Had to swap everything over to a new chassis because people like to wreck into my coupe. Had to build another hood. Installed solid front motor mounts. Refinished my woodgrain console and dash. Finally installed the type ii cams and gutted y pipe. I need to get with Matt about a new chip. I put a lot less pearl in it this time.

If you get a 20 gallon, find a devilbiss 5 hp and it will keep up pretty good. Dont get a craftsman or generic.

you gotta post some pics!!

Glad to see you back on the forums by the way. How's things out in NC??

Oh yea, I finished that engine pull/rebuild project by the way. I remember I was asking you for advice awhile back right before you moved. My coupe is running awesome, that thing is fast as shit!

I'll be doing the sedan this spring, debating on running a 3.5...

Chopped looks like he does a real nice job, i went to school for refinishing and collision repair and all my mechanical knowledge has been self taught. its been a couple years since ive sprayed anything in a booth, no access to one anymore =(

I am wanting to paint my coupe before next winter comes around, im hoping to find a good price or a booth i can rent for a day or 2 around my area.
