I'm not too worried about the texture in the clear - that's easy enough to fix with a sanding block. I picked up some 1000, 1500, & 2000 grit sandpaper today. I also have some cutting compound, polishing compound, and the appropriate foam pads for my variable speed rotary buffer. This weekend is a 3 day weekend for me, so I'm hoping to accomplish the cutting & buffing this weekend. My garage has been ventilating for 2 days and the paint smell is mostly gone.
Thanks for the tip on using a razor blade to shave down the runs - there is one small run where that will probably be the easiest way to fix it.
I ordered my seat upholstery today. I am going with the TMI Sport Seat conversion with Emberglo/Parchment pony seats. This color combination, while original, is not readily available from the major vendors. The sport seat headrests are also shown with a limited color selection. I tried getting a quote through Mustangs Unlimited for a price, but it's been a week now and they haven't gotten back to me. I called TMI today and ordered everything direct from them. Their website shows the Emberglo/Parchment combo, but they don't show Emberglo as an option for the sport headrests. When I talked to them today, they said they can make the headrests from any color material that they have, even if it's not listed on the website. The invoice they sent to me shows the headrests to be a non-returnable special order item. It looks like they have a pretty quick turnaround time - expected shipping date is next Tuesday. There was not any extra charge for the special order - the price I paid was the same as listed on the website. Just figured I would throw this out there in case anyone was wondering about custom orders. The lady who took my order at TMI was very pleasant. One funny thing I noticed was that the invoice listed "emberglo" as "embargo" - the part number associated with the color was correct, so I'm pretty confident that they will get it right.
