It's Thursday AM, and it is pouring down rain outside my hotel window. Weather reports are it will stop soon and the front will have passed us with clear weather all the way to Florida.

Yesterday, they completed spraying 3 coats of black epoxy primer-sealer on the car and the hood. It has had all night to cure and with luck, I will be loading the car into the trailer and starting back home this morning. The car looks great, even though the primer did show a thousand micro-defects that need to be addressed, but next is allowing it to bake in the Florida sun.

And I just looked out the window and all rain has stopped. Here's hoping it is over.
