It’s that time of year again where it’s time to start working on the car. Well actually, it’s past that time of year. I’m getting a late start.

Once the inside is painted, the roll cage needs to be painted again as well. It got pretty dirty and scuffed up during the preparation of the interior and doesn’t look so great anymore. Then after that it’s on to the outside! Then mission “Paint Car” will be complete!
