Got the sail panel done.It's a mofo to get it right.still some tweaking to do but it's gonna look a whole lot better.
Filled the gap with kitty hair bondo followed by a skim of reg bondo. Risky, I know, but...nice.

Freakin sweet. Almost looks like a candy coat. If someone would have said this color on this car I would have been skeptical but now that I see it it looks pretty nice.

I did.The masking tape I used along the quarter panel window shifted a bit and did not get covered by the paint.I now have to touch up those areas affected.Bummer.

WOW!!!
 Great work, Robo. And a beautiful color choice. Wouldn't have thought to pick that color
myself--and that's my loss. Looking forward to seeing the finished job--on a calendar.
 
 I don't really want to push you, but I should mention here that one of the primary things on
my bucket list is to see your Riv when it's really completed, new custom bumpers and all. And I'm probably not going to last too much longer.
