The base coat is on! Letting it cure before we start sanding it. Love this process of the build! You finally get to see some result of all the work you've put in.
My lord, looks killer
WOW!!!! Worldclass! All the hours of craftsmanship are finally paying off.
This already looks awesome! Imagine how it will look with some more coats of black and clear coat! Definitely one of the best projects/cars here on the HAMB. Keep up the good work
I'm slowly starting to understand why this build thread is getting so much attention here on this forum....the work is just immaculate! And the patience involved is something else. Keep up the good work Eric!
Thank you sir
Thank you! I haven't counted all the hours exactly but I'm sure I'm way past the 2000 by now.
Thank you exterminator!
way cool, Eric, and btw i know something about waiting for a shiny black car coming out of the paint booth what a feeling, eh?
Thank you for the kind words Hogman!
Thank you! I think patience and a little skill are the key words.
Thank you Carsten! The feeling can certainly not be described. Thankfully I have an awesome painter in Mark van Wijk!
NICE SHINY Black my all time favorite.
I certainly agree with you on that one!
Awesome! Can't wait to see the final result
Thank you speed v8!
The sanding of the body is almost completed. Going over the final details before we push her back in the paint booth.
The Plymouth is back in the paint booth for the last time. Mark is masking off the last things here. Getting closer!
The anticipation is killing me and honestly can't wait to see the final result. Looking awesome as usual!
Thank you Car. It certainly has been a long road to get this far, but I feel that the end is nearing now. The hard work and countless hours fabricating and welding is finally paying off.
First layer of clearcoat is on the body!
Wowzers, that looks really sharp! You have a right to be proud --- and excited.
Thank you P59! I am both indeed! While trying to stay slightly modest.....
Only word I can think of - WOW....
Thanks for sharing have fallowed your build for quite some time.
Terry aka dirt t
Looks great, but I don't envy the guy who has to bolt it all back together after it's all painted.
What`s that old saying?Oh yeah"All good things come to he who waits".Looking mighty slick.
Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
Thank you Mike!
You're welcome Terry!
Thank you. That person would be me......considering I've done it a few times during the build, I'm sure I'll manage this time as well, even though it's painted.
Thank you very much Leo!
