thanks!

tonight we (my pal Leo) got the car up to primer. there is still lots of work to do before any color goes on the car so dont expect the next update to show a painted car. now come all the small details that we find in primer, getting all the jambs; doors, hood & trunk real nice and clean plus the complete car will be block sanded as flat as possible. ill perhaps test fit the trim and bumpers too. so it looks really close but its not there yet.

That looks good. Kind of reminds me of a model body.

thanks! funny i kept seeing it as a model car too. just has that simple look i guess.


tires arrived so the old white walls were removed, rims were sanded, epoxied and painted in single stage to match. new 6.70-15 Firestone's mounted and balanced.



so the body is now ready to be installed my pal Leo sprayed a redish guide coat. the brakes are 80% complete and the front suspension is buttoned down. so the rest of the build will happen with the body on. we needed to do this so that all the gaps can be finalized.



got a couple parts back from my local chrome shop (not impressed one bit). car is taking shape now. mocking up some parts on the car to trailer it out to a local meet just to show it off a bit. we need the time away from the shop, its been none stop and will continue to be none stop!



we wrapped up tonight by spraying the dash and its parts in the maroon color, this time in base coat clear coat. also cleared the 51 Buick taillights and resprayed the 4 inner fender wells in white again base coat clear coat.

Unreal! Looks very very nice! How are you going to finish off the A pillar area by the driprail where it steps in for the original door jamb? Did it match the convertible vent windows closely?
