Great job so far.
I have a question about your 'glassing. I am halfway through a similar project (got halted for winter, then I went to Europe for a few months... still there). I followed the same preps. Total mask with tape, then tin foil on top. I have done about 4 coats.
However, when I tried to remove it, it seemed quite well attached. I would start breaking off pieces off of the edge of the glass rather than lifting the shell off. I made absolutely sure everything was masked, so I know it's not bonded to the metal (using spare tire well). I think it is just because the masking tape sticks much better to metal than to carpet. I plan on heating the spare tire well from below to loosen the tape.
Was your shell tough to remove? Any tricks?
Thanks man. Keep up the good work.
