The finished product

The long promised pictures of the finished Cobra.

I live in fear he will want to change colors...

Or have a wreck...

After the paint job came several hours of color sanding (wet sanding) to remove orange peel and give the surface a flat glassy surface.

Then buffing with a cloth pad and final buffing compound.

The last step involved a foam pad and machine glaze, a type of super fine polishing compound.

The Cobra has won "Best of Class" at a local car show. My friend believes it would have won best of show with a little more attention to the shock absorbers and some other suspension parts that could have had their looks improved with a little paint and polish.
