I believe I’m out of sandpaper now. So I fit the interiors and bases this morning.

There’s quite a bit more blending to do on these guys. And I think I’ll be removing all the door handles. I like to get primer on there to make it easier to see the remaining flaws.

The hardest part so far was cutting the bases on the 962. I’m not sure what kind of metal was used for those bases, but I ruined one of my cutting wheels trying to get through those indestructible bastards.

This is going to be a good one. I was worried that I’d ruin the beautiful shape of the 962, but I freakin love this thing.

I still need to add some more weld between the rear wheels. I knew it couldn’t be done in one application.

When I asked the question on Monday “should this be done?” I got a request from Wheelerguy to do a more pedestrian example first. He added a picture of a beautiful street legal 962 in yellow.

I really need to get more sandpaper. I use this purple stuff by 3M. It seriously lasts forever without loosing its grit. I fold it to get the lines on the doors, and it eventually falls apart where I fold it.

I made that blister sander 6 months ago. It still works fine (it won’t help me on the 962). That scrap on the right has made 5 cars, but I’ve folded it a lot and it has started to fall apart. So if you’re in the market for sandpaper... Pro Grade by 3M. You won’t be disappointed.

Thanks for checkin out my stuff. See you next week.
