454 Rattler (Jerry) stopped by today to get an up-close look at the buffed out paint so we decided to roll the car outside to see it in the bright sunlight.

This first shot is of me (on the right) doing the "Looka' My New Paint Job Polka" and Jerry showing a marked lack of enthusiasm for my new dance step.

The rest of the shots are self explanatory. One other note of interest, the car will go to Dan TwoLakes' shop next Tuesday for him to start working his magic on the interior. That day has been a long time coming. Meanwhile, I will be rebuilding the motor and finishing up the cut and buff on a few misc. parts.

If you keep polka-ing like that, I'll have to get you to come down at the end of july for polka days in Pulaski (where I grew up, yet I can't polka). Been a few years since I've gone, but I could drink beer and walk to all the bars in the little town pretty well. Its amazing how far some come for polka, most excitement the town ever sees.

Sure lookin good Dewey. Bet your glad to be just about done with the painting and buffing. Boy your projects keep getting better and more involved, I can just imagine the next one.

I like the lines of it and the color is spot on. The goofball doing the polka on the other hand might be too tall to fit in it. You done good Dewey!

Yes. Step by step detail of the body fabrication, from design drawings to final paint, can be seen in my journal starting here

A couple construction shots from the journal.

What do you mean by "tack off" Denny? I am shooting my 48 Chevy SD this summer in a friend's booth; a new venture for me.
Great job!

Usually this refers to wiping down the primer or paint with a tack cloth to remove any dust, debris or paint mist that may have landed on the car. This can also be done between coats of the base paint because base dries so quickly and is almost mandatory before shooting the clear.

Great job!
And don't forget to tack rag the masking paper between coats too. Lots of dust in paint comes from the masking paper.
