idrivejunk John, as someone who passes every job off to another man after metal work these days... I can certainly appreciate how much his help meant on your car. Looks to me like you both did well by the old BelAir. That car had to figure it was a goner for sure before you came along. And what is is today, it couldn't be if you had not crafted the foundation. Back pats to both of you. You both did that Chevy proud!

He didn't run you out of fun stuff to do though. Enjoy whats left of the project. When you can.

John long Steve had Precious soaking up the sun today. I had the privilege of shooting 4 coats of clear on it Thursday but had forgotten my camera.

He deserves the credot for how straight it is. I just got to play with y new Iwata LPH4000 I bought a few months ago.


And one more with the guy that bailed me out and allowed the car to move forward. Thanks again Steve!

John long It's red!

Unfortunately, I let the air hose get into the rh quarter panel and we will have to do a bit of touch up before I shoot the clear tomorrow.

All in all, I am very pleased. Steve's work looks really good and it is going to look great. Tomorrow it turns shiney!

John long I spoke to Steve today. He knew I had intended to french the headlights on Precious using a pair of '54 Merc headlight bands. He ask me to bring them up tomorrow. Since he had to take the front fenders off again anyway he is going to look at going ahead and frenching them before we paint the front clip.

I am surprised he would be interested in doing that but I will gladly let him do it if he decides he would like to.

Pretty cool.


BTW, The reason there has been no more talk of paint is it was 98 degrees here today. No relief in sight until the end of next week. Steve's shop has A/C but the paint booth doesn't.
