    Man your car is smooth. I like that you left some chrome on it. I was looking at some of the older pics, I like the silver with the scallops too. I couldn't completely tell from the pics but the silver looked satin, what kind of paint was it?

    thanks so much.. yeah i really liked the silver too.. but needed a change.. the silver was satin.. basically basecoat paint without clear... so you can get the same results shooting a basecoat.. my silver was a metallic too.

    i know huh! i still have a lot of loose ends to finish.. chop the vent windows, glass, interior, gauges, etc so im sure i can stay busy with it for another year.. but i do have a 51 harley in the works next :)
    cool man, come by and say hi.. we'll have a canopy up.. look for the "Sentinels" banner
    yes i offered... but im still waiting for you to accept! haha.. you might want to see mine in person first.. you may reconsider :D
    thanks

    wanted to thank everybody for all the positive comments.. really helped to keep me motivated.. i probably wont have too many updates to report for awhile.. interior and glass are next.. still have to re locate my exhaust so i can run my skirts... I'm working on my Pontiac beltline trim this weekend..I'll post a pic of that when I'm done... but for the most part its not very exciting stuff, weatherstrip.. rubber bumpers etc.. thanks again everybody for the support :)

    Great job on the paint. Definitely inspires me to get off my butt and get busy on my Fleetline.

    Turned out fantastic!!! I'm still looking forward to seeing it with the interior done, the glass in it and the Pontiac beltline trim...all those fun details! It has been awesome following along on the build!!! Very inspiring!

    Seeing all the progress on your hardtop over the years makes me feel ashamed about how little I get done on my 52. I finished the air bags last year with the help of slicknapier but since then my progress went back to zero! I got to get moving maybe one day I can roll out to so cal and get to hang with you guys! Keep the pics coming cause its helping inspire me again
