Mick Dorn's new paint job...
Got any more pics??
I like what I see........
what a difference a year makes! rad
Wow, what a huge improvement! From another face in the crowd to stunning eye catcher.
Absolutely stunning. Miles deep, and the door mirrors are 1000 times better.
Holy shit!! Looks awesome! Night and day!!
somebody lost fingerprints doing that one !
whoa! its beautiful man! is that bruce willis checkin out the car in 2008? haha!
Jeez! Two thumbs up!
I want to see the front 3/4 shot
That thing looks SWEET!!!
Any details on the paint? Man that thing looks like you could reach into the paint an arm's length before you touch metal!
I don't know the name of the paint. I'll have to ask him when I see him again at York, Nats East. He also has a killer interior that he did last year....sorry no pics....,and I understand he is going to do his 32 roadster in the same paint as this coupe.
This car is his baby, and he's owned it since the late 50's, I believe. I first saw the car in 1964, shortly after he chopped it, and he had just painted it candy apple red. It was a "killer" car then. He is constantly working on it. I remember it being a green metalflake in the '70s. It's always looked great, but this is the best.
You can see the Ghost Scallops better in this shot. I like that much better than flames.
Sweet paint job!! A lot of hard work involved get a paint job to that level!! Your photoshop retouch on the color didn't get past me though. First time i have seen grass not reflect green on a car. Ha ha.:d
I didn't think you could appreciate it with green bumpers and wheels....had to sponge it off.. A polarizing filter helped kill it on the car. No picture in the field could do the car justice. You have to see it in person.
Your so right, it's hard to get a good shot with your color, you really have to pick your surrounds. On a field like that the car would be more green than red!! Cheers great job!
Ha....I was just thinking, maybe the old green metalflake would look OK on the grass.
Wow, he did that car right by painting it. What a difference.
Yeooowza!!! that look edible!!!
I want to know it all. primer sealer, base coat, color coat clear coat, sanding etc. what brands, how many coats, cure time, mixing ratios, additives, the whole kitten kaboodle.
In explicit detail. That paint job is magnificent!
I need a cigarette now... That is SWEET!
And here I was doubting myself and considering throwing in the towel...
