Painted it today, big mistake, rainy, and only 70 Deg, looks bad, will have to sand it down again, and repaint it, but will have to wait until paint cures. It is the worst paint job, I have done yet ! The roof looks funny, but that's because it's going to get vinyl top, and I didn't clear coat it.

Sanded on car today, just have hood to go, then I can buff out whole car. Last picture shows some buffing on drivers side rear Quarter panel, I think it will all look fine ,when done. Oh yes, a scissors lift is great for sanding and buffing, bottom of car. no laying on your back on the ground!

Yes Viking Blue, but I know I will never paint that color again , was a big pain for me to paint. could not get it to lay good. I will have to wait until I get it out in sun, to see if it looks good,

working on Cutlass. for all you car guys out there, why would the previous owner, take the body off frame, take everything off the frame ( so it's a bare frame) send frame out for sandblasting, and then spend big $$$ on having the frame powder coated , replace all the lines, brakes, rotors, calibers, shocks, springs, and not replace the front ball joints!! upper ball joints still had factory rivets in them. I Will fix that now . I'm waiting on the parts, and I will get it back together this weekend. Oh, and I also have new bump stops for control arms coming too. And yes, I will clean the blue over spray off the control arms.

More work on Cutlass, wheel well chrome, body side molding, drivers mirror, door locks, door handles. Rear of car, trunk lock and emblems, chrome trim. front put the tooth on, emblem, chrome trim. But now it has to wait, wife said " are you going to mow the yard tomorrow" so I'm mowing yard tomorrow, happy wife, happy life! P.S. Body side chrome looks funny, because doors are not shut. And after market stuff is crap.
