Thanks guys!  It's coming along. Going to try to spray the black on the bottom of doors tonight. Then finish getting the body ready this week to hopefully shoot this weekend! But to be honest guys, I'm not a fan of the yellow! Just doesn't pop enough for me. My car was same color when I got it. But I repainted it back to factory pewter.

Doors are done!! The matte black turned out nice. It's from SEM called hot rod black. $75 a quart but it's really nice stuff!

Thanks guys.  It's coming along nicely. Can't wait to get it finished up and move onto some other projects. 

Silverback, the paint is base coat/ clear coat. PPG products. Deltron DBC. And their clear. Can't remember number off top of my head.  Pulled the paper off yesterday. Going to try to get the black shot on the bottom tonight.

Well I got a little bit more done. Had some trouble with the lower black strip cracking and lifting so I left it alone for the weekend and finished up some stuff underneath the car. Sprayed upols multiliner on the inner wheel wells and floor pans. Rattle canned the rear end and leaf springs just to make it look a little more presentable. Also sprayed the cowl inside and out. Turned out pretty good. I will get back to fixing the stripes tonight. Here's  some more pics. Enjoy.

Got the lower stripes fixed up. Wet sanded down the cracking paint down to good material, shot sealer over whole area, let sit for a day, wet sanded sealer with 600, then shot the hot rod black again. So far so good. Shot it last night and checked it this morning and it still looks good. So if all is good I will be installing the doors Friday along with gas tank, new fuel lines, filler neck, new shocks all the way around and any other small parts I can.

Got a little more done on the car last night. Replaced the fuel lines from tank to pump. All new metal and rubber lines. Got the tank in.  Filler neck and trunk gasket. Got all 4 shocks swapped out. Hoping to hang the doors soon! Also found the build sheet under back seat. Can't really read it but at least I found it.

Got the doors hung today and fired it up and pulled it outside. Nice sunny day today so figured let it bake in the sun few hours. Going to try to get the fenders and little pieces primed and shot this week.
