Wow!!!! that blue looks killer in the sunlight.

It Looks great John :thumb: :thumb:

Tell the painter he did a great job.

What's left to do on the body, wet sand and a buff job, any striping?

That's what I'm waiting on, to have mine wet sanded and buffed then I'm going to add a black pin stripe.

Better keep that little doggie way from it so it doesn't pee on the tires!

Paint guy is camaroman9 who is posting in this thread (Robert Beezley) and yes, he's making it look great. I'm not sure of the exact procedure for buffing it out, but yeah that's left to do.

No Stripes, No black Spoiler, just Blue. I'd love to have the bumpers chromed, but for now they are going to be the body color.

Did you paint the rear wing blue??? Please say yes.

Two thumbs up to Rob :thumb: :thumb: It looks real good Rob.

I know it might be a long trip, but there is a place in Pittsburg PA that can chrome fiberglass.
He did some work for a coworker and man it sure looked nice. If you want, I can get you the address.

Any luck on the door trim molding? I think Classic Industries sells a 4pc kit for $40.00.

The rear wing is supposed to be Blue. Some of the young whipper snappers think it ought to be black, but I'm not game for that one.

I'm not interested in spending $800 on chroming the bumpers right now, so that's going to wait. There is a new wrap film out that is chrome that would be a lot less expensive, but I don't know how well it would work.

I'm waiting to get the car home before I work on the door panels any more, there are some things I need to look at.

It's got a LOT of pearl in it, so much it looks metallic up close, but it has no metallic.

Picked her up today - Robert did an outstanding job on her! The sun was setting so it really doesn't show how much this color pop's when the light is on it, but you can sure see how shiny it is. And, we got it loaded and unloaded without scratching anything...

Chris, I don't know if you recognize that car of Johns. It's a Nova. I know, I know. It's only one color, not 28, but yes, it is indeed a Nova. Just wanted to be sure you caught the fact that a Nova can be only one color.
