CA&E 458 Update

Kyle addressed some areas of concern that were seen through the first coat of primer.

The walls have many fasteners that are to be painted over. The original paint had failed at these fasteners due to slight movements and differences in the metal types.

To stop that problem, Kyle has applied flexible, paintable seal sealant to the joint edges, and a different type of epoxy sealer over the trouble areas.

Just about done with the main compartment, then off to the smoker.

Back to the roof.  With the car now having ratchet straps all the way around, Thee is working his way up and down, stretching the canvas a few clicks at a time.

This is shot of Chief Car Officer Jeff Bennett on top of the car, with Thee below. Jeff went on top in his socks to inspect the roof canvas for any problem areas.
