Ivan's coupe [paint stuff black]
Today's progress (for lack of a better word):
Sprayed the wheel tubs with 3M rubberized stone chip coating.
The raptor liner beneath it is strong enough to withstand street use but I wanted some additional noise insulation.

Remembered to bring the fuel tank gaskets this time, so I finished off the tank.
My new fuel pump bracket came painted matte black, but I have very little faith in the longevity of toyota's paint, so I slapped some 2k black over it.

Same goes for the sender unit (this got a dose of rust converter first):

Pouring out a little bit of paint is quite difficult, so after the brackets were painted I still had 3/4 of my mixed paint left in the gun. Sprinted to my big box of zink plated brackets and grabbed some stuff to empty the gun on.

The little spots are a combination of solvent pop and dust.. serves me right for painting on the floor and in a hurry. But they are well protected from rust without the paint so I'm not too fussed.

Here is the assembled unit. I glued the old protection pads on with some special body trim glue. Got the orientation of one wrong but who cares eh?

Mounting the thing will have to wait till I get myself a bit of new fuel hose

FABRICA MI DIEM, PVNC!
