Yeah, you!


Fired right up when I hooked up the battery!




She sounds so good! Man, I love the way that thing sounds. Smile

Why'd you wake me up so early? I had another month left to sleeeeep!


Time to get dressed. Consider this the "before" shot. Wink

They were all pitted, so I was going to get them powdercoated. But... I forgot where I put them. Rolling Eyes So it looks like I'll be ordering new ones. Wink

It has no crossbar in it now. Is the 91-3 one the chrome one?

I'm not going to use a crossbar anyways. I hate the way they look on the car and I will NEVER put anything on the roof! Wink

The 91-93 RMW is chrome, the Custom Cruiser one is black. Check the new yarding thread, perfect pic in there. They don't look like a roof rack, they fit the back of the window perfectly, and don't stick up. Even if you don't use it, I think they look better with one on the roof.

So glad I told him "no rush" when I dropped it off... Wink







I swung by to check out the colors in the sunlight now that the sun FINALLY came out after like 3 weeks of overcast.

Might be done sooner than I thought...

Paint. Wink

Here's some more progress from today...








Paint was getting thin, there were some dings, and a couple surface rust bubbles starting. It needed some attention. Smile

You think I'm having it straightened out and paying the best body man around to prep for a satin black paint job? Hell no! I'd do that myself! (Like what I'm going to do to the ill brougham. Wink

I'm offended. Razz

Just about ready for paint. Today's snow storm may bring in some collision work for him though, and my car is there as a "when he has time" job... So who knows when it will actually make it into the booth? I'm in no hurry, but I'd like it back by the beginning of April. It was all primed and sanded and he was taping and masking it all off when I stopped by after work today. Looks really nice. He did a great job on those dents on the front fender. And the "few" dings and spots I mentioned turned out to be TWENTY FOUR Shocked spots that he saw that needed attention. And I'm PICKY! She's about as straight as she can get right now. He was impressed with the car. Told me that this may have been the nicest shape 18 year old car, body wise, that he's ever worked on.

Pics:










And yeah, I think the satin white looks kinda cool. Wink

Looks good but I wish they would've pulled the stainless trim and tail lights. Would've given a better job and probably took longer to mask off than to just remove them. Somebody did my car the way yours is being done and now the paint is peeling around every piece if trim. Sad

I told them to leave the trim. If a clip broke, I couldn't replace it. This guy does killer work, so I like my chances. Wink

Tail lights are coming off for paint.

I did, Jim. Razz

Job actually woulda been a bit cheaper if they just removed em. A lot less time & materials than masking them off!

I started collecting them a while ago. The small ones for the rear quarters are the tough one's.

Boy that is going to be sharp. Looking forward to see her at WF2013 Waterloo!!

He got some paint on it Friday, but last week's storm brought him some collision work, so it's on the back burner for right now...

So do you guys want a teaser? Or do you want to wait and see it all painted, assembled, and together?

It's "smokey caramel".... Lots of pearl and metallic in it. Very nice color. You'll like it, trust me. Wink

Now she'll be the "Toasted Marshmallow" Very Happy

A couple more pics from last night...





He's still gotta pull the taillights...

He sprayed the roof first so he could lift the car up to get the rest of it all at once. Wink

Interesting black paint around the rear window. Will hide well under the tint! Neat idea.

Keep the pics coming!

Here's a couple pics from yesterday. It's not done yet, but I hope to pick it up Thursday... I'm totally stoked. It looks friggin awesome! This has been my vision for this car since I first took ownership of it 4 years ago from my wife. Love it!





There's a charcoal metallic stripe separating the colors the same color as the centers of the wheels...

And the money shot!

I'll get more pics when it's together and have it home on a sunny day so you can really see how that color dances in the sun! It's a maroon/chocolate color and then when the sun hits it, it's like a molten sunset gold/bronze. It's awesome. The paint really grabs the ruby red interior, too!

The body was straightened and the whole car was sprayed. I still have a few more exterior touches to do before the final pics. But these should tide you over for now... Wink
