    Reminds me a lot of the green my buddy's 62 bel air was back in high school in 71. He had it painted dark green metallic so it did not look like his Grandma's car lol But now colors like that make a car seem more traditional and look cool on hot rods. Times and taste change. Larry

    Love the color, looks great! But please tell me you wore something other than that dust mask when you shot the color and clear!

    I made a box with 2x4’s. Then bought a house furnace filter stapled it to the box. Put that at one end and a fan at the other.

    Damn nice job bro!...I have a hard time figuring people out, why do people buy cars that may not be there favorite color or opinion of best color for that car but people don't seem to want to buy a primer'd car and have it painted THEIR choice of color?....speaking of JohnyCASHcadillac, when you were acquiring " one piece at a time" being your in Southern California was that latex based paint which is what I understand is the only paint you can buy there?

    Just kidding...I figured you had it for the night. It just reminded me of those headlights that turn when you do...:D
    You have been major busy and again the outcome is just fantastic.
