Let's see some pictures of the whole process. I did this with the frame on my gto and it was fairly enjoyable.

6th and final Caot.
As you can see it was quite thick at this point. Im gonna keep her on the lift jacked to the top overnight were all the good heat stays trapped and she will be nice and cured when I go in tomorrow morning :punk:
what a dirty process bead blasting is but easy to do. I did mine outside shop on jack stands and the 16hrs I have into blasting and coating are well worth the time in the long run :thumb:
