    Removing all the paint, there are about 7 coats. All the custom work is done in lead and still in great shape. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Didn't like it back then, don't care for it now either. But I recognize that it represents a lot of hard work so my hat's off to you on the recent repaint.

    Wow, life is weird...............' looks as though all the fecal flingers who weighted in on the Joe Wilhelm built Mark I Mist must be on holiday:D

    Can the building of early street rod clones be the next big thing?;)
