the weekly grind

lisa sanding

we’ve decided that we can’t do much more paint removal without taking out the windows and taking off the bumpers and pop-top. which is a big stage, one i’ve been anticipating for… well, years.

it gets complicated… we have to make a rack to store the glass in, and hope it doesn’t break during removal, storage or replacement. the pop top might take several people to remove and the garage is going to get crowded with all the stuff taken off the van.

we’re also approaching the point where i need to make some artistic decisions. we could put a pattern of marks in the metal before the final coating is put on; i need to figure out what, if anything, i want to do about that.
