You will have to tell me how you did it (please and thank you). It looks amazing.

I dabble in automotive airbrushing so I know how lacquer, base coat/clear coat, single stage paint, and powder coating all work. THose are some great results.

sand blasted the faces and the base plate. the plate needed some putty work for all the pits. filler primer then a rattle can of gloss white. The rustoleum paint and primer stuff is a little heavier and sticks really well. After it cured, put the decals on and let them cure. then clear coated everything with a single heavy coat to fill in along the edges of the decals.

Located the gas tank and built the straps.  Always hate a vehicle with the gas filler on the passenger side, so switching that to the driver side while I'm at it. Now that I have the tank mocked up, I can blast the area and build the floor pan.

The bumper guards and crank hole cover really give it that OLD look!

Thanks. It looks great. Who is the paint from? Eastwood, PPG, Valspar, House of Colors, Dupli-color, etc.?

replaced someone's bondo and window screen job with steel. Unfortunately, they never closed the underside so the interior panel was screwed as well.

Great work.

You must love coming across all the shortcut fixes that people have done to the car over all the decades.

Frosty, it has definitely been a learning experience!  while fixing the section in front of the wheel well, I discovered the rocker had been welded to the door pillar in the wrong position. I knew the rocker was crashed, but damn! I never would have thought somebody would just weld it where it ended up. 1 inch too high and 1/2" too far in.  The new metal tab on the bottom is where the rocker should be!
