1941 chevy coupe fireplace
I had every intention of restoring a 41 chevy that has been in my family for 35 years, In the process of tearing it apart I was diagnosed with ms, I knew I didn't have the energy to do a complete restore on it so I thought of the next best thing to keep a memory of the old car. I used a laser level to cut the hood and fenders at a forty five degree angle. I then mounted the fenders to a electric fireplace insert. Slid the whole thing into a corner of my basement and I now have keep sake that will also provide heat in the winter.
My biggest surprise in all this is that when I took it to a body shop to get the fenders smoothed out and the whole thing painted, the quote was $2100.00. Am I crazy or does that seem expensive. I am now thinking about painting it myself. What's the best product to use without having to buy a paint gun or is there a good budget gun. There really isn't that much surface left to paint.
