I can officially can say Woo Hoo. My doors are shiny. They buffed out very nicely. It will be good to put the old girl back together.
Thanks John, heck yeah those doors look first class. I love paint work, it's art, it is true art like painting an beautiful ocean scene if you ask me. Very nice work.

I got the 8.8" Ford bolted up in the '63 Falcon, but can't weld the perches until the engine is in and I set pinion angle. After that I chopped up 20' of 1.25" tubing and built up the ladder bars for the Falcon. Didn't quite finish them, but got pretty close!

I do to. Anyone with the desire, willingness to learn, and patience can do good paint work with the modern material available today. I can not do murials, flames, graphics, or other neat things since I do not have the God given talent to do any kind of art work. Same with music, I played trumpet all through school and even played in the Ship's band in the Navy but only had some skill. NO TALANT!! Can't play a note by ear. Never could, Never will. Bummer.

Talent has to be given to you at birth but pretty much anyone can learn a skill. My old car provides me with my avenue for success.

My car is a mid to late 80ís Mercedes midnight blue. I like it because it is very dark, has no metallic, and has no purple hue at all. I saw a 34 Ford Roadster at the NSRA NATS in Louisville years ago and liked the color so well I never forgot it. Even memorized the PPG paint code. PPG DCC 13907. You can tell I am very secretive about it.

Funny. The fellow that had the car in Louisville really hesitated to tell me what it was. I don't get that at all. If 50 people decided to paint their car this color what possible difference would it make? Hope he likes it.
