    Yup, those 4 round headlights, Always gets folks to move over when you are coming up fast.
    I had the 68 Chevelle, with the 4 headlights, only side by side not over under.
    Another nice front end from GM in the 60s.

    Took the day to get everything remasked, washed down with final solvent and the like and rehung, ready for paint tomorrow.
    Should be a warm day and if I start early, get it all done before dark.

    Yup, floor was swepped today believe it or not, everything blown down and tomorrow, gonna spritz it all with the hose before the final final wipe.
    Note the two fans for extraction behind the car.
    I use the smaller, 12” dia for my general ventilation, the big 32” when I lay on the paint. It moves over 2400 CFM and was a good investment for this project. I originally tried running prefilter cloth over it, but this stuff dies so quickly, the dust wipes off between sessions so I run it unfiltered now.
    Moves a shitload of air and I shut it off when painting the rear of the car actually.

    You have a make up air …like an open window …with a filter over it ? And let those fans run 3-4 hours after your done.

    There is a pedestrian door up at the inside corner of the garage I’ve propped open and stuffed filter cloth in the opening, as well as the roof louvres are open and screened.
    It ain’t bug free sadly but it’s breezy. The pull or inrush of air at the side door is significant, and you couldn’t light a match.
    The panels all sway on their wires with everything running

    And I hear ya Tom, been some bonus warmth up here, I have to capitalize on it!

    I don't know. As much as I love the GTO, and I do love it, I have to say the first generation Buick Riviera takes the brass ring in that contest.
