If I wasn't so poor and could afford to buy a selection of paint I probably would have done the interior in red like the roof but the last time I bought red by the gallon it was almost 280 dollars. The best part of painting today is it rained last night and we had no dust today the doors were painted outside in the driveway and with a south west wind all the overspray blew out across the pasture land next door.

Your waiting for the proper patina/aging affect before you clear coat it.

I have to get the doors back on it and adjusted then I can wet sand it and mask off the stripes then hit it with some clear.

I have a couple never mounted sets one for the mirrors and I will use the other set for the doors I measured out where they are positioned on the doors from an old R-600 sitting out in our company junkyard.

back masking for stripes is challenge enough for me, I applaud  you for getting the star layout to appear perfect!  I wouldn't have been lucky enough to have all the points of the stars stay "stuck" and would of had a screw up some where!......trucks looking good!

Actually the point at the top is not sharp as the rest I learned to roll the point back a bit so it makes it easier to peel them off by grabbing them with a side cutters they are vinyl so they stick real good.. One other thing I learned is when masking off stripes do both doors at the same time mask a stripe on one then mask the same stripe on the other keeps measurements a lot more accurate.

Had time to clearcoat the doors today most of the day yesterday was devoted to wet sanding and masking the doors to get the colors right heres what the doors came out like. Thanks to the 20 mile an hour wind today these will have to be wet sanded and buffed out to get all the little pieces of airborne crap out of them that's a reflection in the first picture between the door handle opening and hole for the lock not a massive run as it appears to be.

I bought a down draft booth cheap at a body shop auction and even with that I manage to get a bug doing the dance of death across the most visible area . . .guaranteed. Yours came out excellent!
