Hello,

Here we go again, picking up where we left 2 weeks ago. I continued polishing the Z06 body.

There are a few spots that may need some additional care but

PLEASE help me get away from the stupid idea of a repaint.

I'll try to take some pics in natural daylight tomorrow.

That's it for now. It's good to be back, even if it's only for a few minutes :)

Thanks,

Len,

That color is yellow :)

That is Cobra Colors Velocity Yellow, a factory correct finish. It is a bit more "lemony" than Millenium yellow, which is a little bit more "orangy".

Thanks,

Forget the repaint. That's what touch-up brushes are for!

Update:

OK, repaint idea is off. I was able to get most imperfections out with a little more elbow grease. There are still a few spots to take care of, but nothing major.

Biggest "problem" so far is this: easy to fix with an airbrush pass.

What did you use to seal the plastic? When I did the Daytona Sunset Orange I used Binzer like Steve Millberry uses. This is Cobra Colors.

Len, that is gorgeously beautiful. Is that Monterey red? I use Moon mud primer on all my Cobra Colors jobs. Before Moon mud, I used Plastikote T-235 with excellent results. Unfortunately, Plastikote disappeared from the face of the earth, at least here. I liked to use it as a "coarse" primer for general use and sanding, and then moon mud as a fine primer before color. But now is Moon mud only.

Thanks,

That color is very hard to photograph. Mine looks red in almost all pictures as well. Only on a direct sunlight and/or slightly overexposed pic it will look orange.

That's my favorite color for a C6 coupe.
