Scott - If you don't mind please share your process for a bone stock/factory like paint job (if its possible to give a condensed version).
-Single stage, two stage, clear?
-How long do you wait between coats?
-Is color sanding all that's needed to prep for stripes?
-"Tickling the edges", if the paint is laid on correctly would proper buffing and polishing take care of this?
-I have never seen a survivor up close but are all panels suppose to be free of fine waves (for a lack of better term)?
-Is there a book on the market you can recommend for a "lookalike"
40+ year old paint job as it was done back in the day to include all painted areas?
-And last, what has been your experience with top judged events with respect to judges preference...back in the day look, or same techniques but more refined?
