Our painter sent me some progression photos of our car. Looks like he has fixed the dents from a couple of mile marker strikes.



He has also sanded all the stripes and lettering off as well.  Hopefully we are on schedule still for paint on Saturday. :cheers:

I alter the fotos in Photoshop and have no idea about the other programs. In fact I have never even

accessed Photobucket.  If you run into a bad image, send it to me and I'll make it as good as I can

and return it to you.

I enjoy your diary and will see you soon.

I suspect you want to use the "direct" link, that is what I use on imageshack images to post them on the web so they show up properly.

Thanks for the info.  There was a mix up for the booth this morning so we have to wait until this afternoon to paint the car.  This is our painter, Tony Benivides and his some Brandon.



The car is ready for the booth when it opens up. :roll:

Use the "img" button to get the photo from Photobucket to this Forum.  The Thumbnail button gives you that, and the others are for email and website stuff - - I think.  I use the "img" one all the time.  See you next week.

Red primer sealer is on, now we need to wait about 45 minutes before we can spray the first coat of paint.

Three clear coats sprayed and she looks great. :cheers:





The car will spend the night in the booth and I'll snap a picture in the sun in the morning. :cheers:
