Hi Tom,

Yes, it would be great if we could both show our cars together! A Yellow Bird and a Gold Bird. Birds of a feather flock together!

One of our new users reported to me that his anti-virus software detected a java script virus on my PaintJob web page. I ran a complete and thorough anti-virus scan after making sure my anti-virus software (Panda) was completely up to date. Nothing was detected. Has anyone else who has looked at that web page, or the other ones, Interior, TrunkWork, FrontEndRepairs, run into a virus alert regarding them? If so, please let me know.

I haven't seen anything Ray, but that doesn't mean it isn't or wasn't there...I have added a brief comment under the PC help desk thread...

Cool

Ray as with Coral's comment, I didn't see anything either when I viewed your progress. Yellowrose is looking good.

Someone asked me how JD's paint guys prepared the engine well for painting with the engine in, because he wants to do his engine well with the engine in. Here is what JD told me.

They took everything off the fender wells and off the firewall, except the AC plenum which they taped off. They used bungee cords to keep things off the fender wells. They cleaned off the areas they were going to paint very well before they started. They used Scotchbrite red scouring pads, for rough scouring and grey ones for fine scouring. They degreased the whole area to be painted. When they were satisfied that the areas were clean and ready for painting they then covered over the engine and everything else that they did not want to paint yellow and sealed it all off. It looks like it worked. Carl ~ partsetal, has a very good explanation of all this in the link below. He tells you how to do it.

http://www.squarebirds.org/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=8533&page=4

I went by today to see how things were going. They had the car all sealed up and the white painting done. They were waiting for the yellow pearlescent paint to come in. It, apparently, got hung up in the Memorial Day holiday. They hoped to have it this evening and start painting the yellow exterior tomorrow.

I want to add to this that I might not have written everything that JD's paint team did to the engine well before they painted it. I was hard pressed to remember all that he said they did. I think it was much in line though with what Carl said that he did in the link above. I just went over Carl's comments and they are pretty much the same as what JD told me, as I best remember it. So it sounds like his paint team did pretty much the same as Carl did.

Hey Marco, I love the Tweety Bird Bean Bag! I just grabbed it for some future use. What, I don't know! I must admit that I am keeping ya'll somewhat in suspense. If I post the pix I have now, it will give away my complete color scheme for Rose. So I have not been posting much. You know from the previous pictures that she has a white roof. The rest should be revealed in just a couple or three more days..... Hopefully, by the end of the week. They need to get the painting done, get the chrome back on, and Joseph, my interior guy needs to get it back in and the trunk fixed up again. It is gonna be close, but I might make the VTCI Regional in Ft. Worth yet!
