Doing beautiful work like you do is a passion that goes deep. It's a friggin drug that is pretty hard to walk away from. Hopefully it will work out, you need to keep doing stuff like that 55, beautiful stuff!

Looks good Henry, you should be proud of that car. Not many people realize the amount of work, dedication, time and sweat goes into making a car look that good. The paint looks great, but the best paint job in the world is no better than the work under it, and your work makes that painter look really good. Keep up the good work, keep a positive attitude, and things will work out for you. Doing that quality of work will take you far in this business, even if it is not where you are currently, it will happen. I can't think of a single person in the business that would not be proud of the quality of workmanship in that car. Best of luck with things in the future.

thanks guys. We needed a car like that to impress the guys next door as this is the first car we're doing for them without the old painter.

pics before it goes next door for chrome and interior. Won't be seeing this for a while.















the decklid still needs it's rubber seals and stops. The stops on it now are just to keep it away from hitting.

Clean and straight Henry...you have every right to be proud...this is a definite situation where no matter how good a painter is, the body work sure helped make him look good.

Excellent work.

Ray

thanks guys. There was a lot of work that went into that and this was mainly my project so I'm happy. The funnest part about this was making the tail lights fit...bending the bezels, shaving off here and there off the pot metal, and then re-gluing the rubber seal back on. They're so finicky that when we got new bezels I could only use one cause the other wouldn't bend to fit on either side. The right light will only fit on the right side and vice versa, but they fit soo good now. A lot of work. I also did the wet sanding on the doors and fenders but had to work on something else when it came to buffing, but wish I did cause that's the icing on the cake and you get rewarded by seeing the shine come out. I love that about buffing.

69, that looks like one fine job you did and I hope you get that GM job because the way you go out of your way to post tech videos on here and help people you do not even know, I'm sure you could turn that shop around real fast.

You are a real asset to this industry and it needs a lot more people like you to train the new guys coming up.

Great work!

looks like the winners of the tv show car warriors, the 2013 sac autorama car builder of the year, are looking to once again make a bunch of haters mad when they sweep up a bunch of trophies at this years autorama-lol. Man, when are these "part swappers" gonna stop earning their respect in the trade and start earning it on the internet, where it really matters? hahaha- See you at Autorama and Sema!
