In other words, if you have a lot of dirt, like I have, don't spend too much time with the DA.  Some of those pieces of dirt are BIG!  Have no idea how this is going to look.  It looks like some of that dirt was so heavy it settled in the bottom of the paint.

Tomorrow I'll work on the shifter, prime the oil system and finish the ignition.  I don't have studs for the carb, so that will have to wait.  I still have to work on the harness, but I needed all the electrics in place to lay it all out.  Harness will take a few hours then wrap.  I soaked it in solution and the wires look new.  They are in excellent shape except where some schmuck cut the harness to the headlights.  But I am cutting in relays for the headlights as the low beams are going to be HID's.

I decided to get my touch up painting done.  I hade barely enough paint to paint the right front side.  Had a couple of spots that needed to be cleaned up.  Ran short on the hood.  Chris and I were talking behind the scenes.  Have allot of feathering to do on the hood now.

Was wondering what those blunt end wires were, should be able to get a six or eight plug and matching connector to add it and look professionable at that point, and sure you know about NAPA carrying all the wire end male and female brass connector ends to do it prettylike. Did you use non-stick wrap, sticky black tape, or the cloth tape? I wholeheartedly prefer the latter myself, hard to find the non-stick wrap. dana442011-10-11 00:53:13

Non Stick wrap.  It took about 2/3 a roll to that.  But I have 3 more if needed.  It was hard to find, but I stumbled over it.

Much better than the sticky stuff. I finally found the cloth tape by 3M, very factory original, my Dakota had it in 1995, and yeah, lots of plastic tubing, but the black cloth on the ends, feels sticky when you  put it on and after that, it not only doesn't, but it doesn't unwrap like the sticky stuff, gas doesn't seem to affect it, and dirt really doesn't stick to it, either.

It took me 3 hours to 1000 out the dirt in 2/3 of one fender

Kind of gives you more of a reality check as to why a good paint job will cost you $10,000, $25,000 for full restoration paint, huh?

Man that's looking good Steve!!  I could easily live with dirt in that paint if it was on my crewcab...sure beat the chalky, thin to primer stuff that's on there now.

Think I will be looking into that 2K stuff as well.

As for tape wrap...I like to use Hockey stick tape...the cloth stuff.  Cheap to buy and looks, and sticks very well.
