Good job! Fun to see a project all come together.


Quick question, why is your pylon thru the cover?

It all looks great @Showmaker. I was wondering if you were going to be able to run the speaker wires through the break points in the tower. I guess not. I think your solution is clean and looks much better than it did!

Looking forward to seeing the new decals.

Hey thanks guys!

Rockman, not sure... I think it's the original cover? There's a hole there for the pylon (a plastic ring sewn in and all). Looks kinda strange.

Dive, for sure! Us too!

Rocketboy, we'll get you a picture today.

Hey does anyone have some insight on wet sanding? We've done our research (we thought), but feeling a little nervous now that we're actually doing it today. Specifically, how long are we supposed to sand before compounding? We've started with an 800 grit, then moving to 1000. Not sure if we should be sanding until the decal shadows and little nicks/scratches disappear or if we need to move through the whole process (wet sand, compound, polish) before everything's gone. Maybe we should just be sanding until we have an evenly sanded surface (everything's looking exactly the same amount of ****ty, no sanding stripes or anything, ha)?

Thanks!!

Interior Cleaning

This weekend we deep cleaned the interior. Took approximately 2 hours to complete. We used Mother's VLR (Vinyl, Leather and Rubber) cleaner, a soft bristle brush, a "bug remover" hand scrubber, squirt bottle with water and a microfiber towel. We started with VLR and soft bristle brush to break loose as much grime as we could. Then we put more VLR on and used the "bug remover" hand scrubber to get in all the small creases of the vinyl. Last, we used the water from the squirt bottle and microfiber towel to remove all the cleaner. Some places (driver's seat, passenger seat and engine covers) needed to be done twice.
