I failed to mention that I was painting at 6:30-7 in the morning before the sun got to intense. That first coat also brought out all of the imperfections that I thought were removed.

I just returned from a 1000 trip and while driving through a cool rain in Wyoming, I turned off the AC but left on the fan. The fan itself was shutting down upon acceleration. Sorry about the mistake!

A one in less than 3000 made Indy with only 11000 miles not worth $10000?

Indy Blowing Hot Air

My truck was parked for 6 years & now the A/C does not blow cold.

Could it be the seals and if so, how does one go about replacing them?

Do I need to strip the car down to bare metal due to poor factory primer? Or is the paint subpar? The primer does seem to be holding up well.
