My Dad always says, "If you have to take a bite of a sh!t sandwich, take a big bite!"

Hopefully I haven't bitten more than I can chew!





The plan is to polish the trim and change the wood color to Ebony Metallic woodgrain from www.metrorestyling.com

Now to choose some wheels...

This is just a test of your character. Make sure you have a few extra grommets at the nose, in case you damage or loose one. While you are at it, why not install a 454?

Use care to keep the push pin fasteners on the points from breaking.

Glad you're getting the aircraft off your trim. Pesky aircraft...

Dang, I'd be eager to see how it turns out. The 3M Black Woodgrain is what I've always wanted...just really expensive compared to the Vivvid product I used.

Can't wait to see it finished!!

Wowow! So cool! I'm really digging their "Marine Teak"... Dangit, now I'm thinking about trying the same thing!

I think I'll let you go on ahead and learn from your mistakes.  Laughing

Good luck! We're all counting on you!

Looking forward to seeing your progress. I'm interested to see how the dark would look on a white wagon, especially with chrome trim.
side note, I had no idea there was a demand for the "rust" category of vinyl. what a strange product.

Some progress being made. The trim is almost all stripped, and a couple pieces have a little polishing done.




The vinyl is all off of the car.







It's hard to tell, but, the vinyl on the passenger side rear quarter was different than the rest of the car. It didn't come off cleanly. left all the adhesive behind.



This may be the look I sport for a while. Both trim pieces with white between. It's getting a little cold to install vinyl. You may have noticed my new shop isn't insulated yet.

Thanks to Lakeffect for the mandatory addition!
