Final painting was split into two parts due to Tribute's attendance of the 2014 Cruisn' For a Cure show. In order to attend I focused on finishing only the portions of the car adjacent to hardware necessary to make the car physically complete. After the 2014 show I painted, lined and cleared the large areas left unfinished in oder to debut Tribute at TMPCC's 2015 4th of July show. All told the final painting step took approximately 5 months. Many coats, many revisions, and some new techniques like metal leafing and glazing.
