Got hit with a DIRT BOMB!   I didn't have a spec until after the last coat.  The wind kicked up and I guess it knocked the dirt out of the cross member on the tent.   I cleaned that too.  Maybe I shouldn't have.  I can 800 it out pretty easy.  At least it isn't fish eye.  Whole car gets wet sanded anyway
 

 
 

 
 
This is where the kink is.  There is still a slight indication it's still there.  Depends on the angle you look at it.  There was a fist sized dent there before

I just went out and peeled the masking tape off. . . .
 
This is a fresh batch of paint, mixed yesterday.  It's about 10 shades lighter than the previous batch. 
 
The lighting in there isn't good enough to show the difference with the camera.  The new color is more like what it is supposed to be.  I have to say the last batch was mixed wrong.  Now I have to paint over everything that can be seen and the inside of the hood again.

Oh yeah, you can bet on that.  Nothing more annoying then driving down the road and see a flaw in the hood

Good thing this had time to dry.  The rain and wind kicked up quite a bit.  40 MPH winds and downpours.  Looked at it this morning and it had drops all over it.  But it was set up by then.

When painting, you have to get enough paint in the first place to be able to batch the cans together in a bigger container....that's what we do at the resto shops. Once we had to mix 16 gallons of lacquer together in a empty lacquer thinner drum for a Duesenberg to make sure the color was correct.

Yeah I know.  I only bought 2 quarts.  But there is such a vast difference between them it stands out big time.

OK  Round 2
 
The hood just needs to be cleaned, the new hinges are ready.  Now it's wait for the wind and this cold snap to pass.  Friday will be paint day  Then I can hang the inners and fenders.  I'll paint the fenders on the car.  Just mask off the hood and cowel.  It's so cold, even my DA sander is freezing up.
 

 
The bow in the hood still shows
 

 
 
I had an incident with my resperator.  It's a dual filter 3M made for this stuff.  One of the filters fell off while I was painting.  I didn't notice it until well into the job.  So I got a face full.
So I went out and got an oil free compressor from Amazon, got a refurb for 169.00.  Went to Grainger and got a pressure mask and a 25' hose.   Now the mask will be under positive pressure.
 
Chris, this is a good idea for you since you will be in the atmosphere more.

I agree with Roger....But I'm afraid to lay down paint in any weather since I have no experience doing it....

I can get the tent up to 65 with no wind.  It holds it pretty well.  I can keep it at 50 with a cube heater and the halogen lights when 35 outside.  I get the sheet metal warmed up.  shut off the heater, lay the paint, relight the propane heater in 1/2 and hour and repeat the process.  Works out fine.  Polyurathane has a hardner in it, so it dries no matter what.  Actually it allows it to flow a while longer.  45 predicted for Friday.  I have to go for it then so I can get everything inside.
