Just saw this thread. Hope you are on the mend Dub. Bending over and working on these cars can put a hurting on even a perfectly healthy strong back.

A few months back I asked your advice on a painting issue : https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...post1598074061

The old paint was solid, no blisters, peeling etc. The car was 100% garage kept. I hand-sanded the clear coat carefully until most of the "pin holes" were gone and the ones left were very shallow. I scrubbed the car good with Pine sol and then pressure washed with just water. Waited a couple weeks to make sure everything was dry, wiped it all down with degreaser twice, went over it with tack cloth. I gave it two coats of the factory original Mulsanne Blue followed by three coats of clear. All in all it came out looking purty good. Not perfect, I know where the flaws are, but the average non professional observer would have to look hard to find them. Thank you again, for taking the time to give me some of your hard earned advice.

Glad to hear he's on the mend, I messed my back up bad couple of years ago and pushed it too hard too soon. Lemme tell you that the second time hurts much worse than 1st time... So take nice and easy on the back Dub.
