    Wow, great work, I am in the midst of redoing a 58', and am really loving seeing what you are doing. I think mine is not as bad as yours is, although I am still digging into it. After looking at kens65b's beautiful 57, I am seriously thinking of removing my moldings on the side of the vehicle, it makes a really clean look.

    Sexy, Sexy, Sexy!
    Are you revealing your exterior color plan yet?
     
  4. Haha thanks!
    Yeah here's a little sneak peak. This is a quick little test panel I did to test colour. It's HOK silver mini flake over silver base and about three coats of teal Kandy. It will be done in a Watson panel style. [​IMG]

    Excellent work sir, my hat is off to you. Like the Watson direction for the paint job too. Thanks for posting.

  9. Update:
    So the engine is a '68 302. We pulled it apart and it looked great inside. Definitely looks to be a quality rebuild done and not long ago so we basically just threw new gaskets in and gasket matched the heads. One exhaust valve was wearing kind of funny so it got replaced. Edelbrock airgap intake was added and that's about it!!! New clutch, flywheel and water pump too while it was all apart. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Looks great!
    It looks like you are over the tedious annoying work. Now comes all of the really satisfying stuff.

  15. Okay more updates. It's been a work marathon lately and I don't say that lightly. The days and weeks are blurring together and I'm burning out. Thank goodness for a lot of help from some good friends. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  17. And now all sanded down. Looks like primer again haha.
    I towed the car to a friends shop to do the Kandy so that we could leave it in his booth through the whole painting process which will be four days because our booth is too busy.

    Brought my son Jack out to help sand it down for a re-clear. He actually did pretty good! We'll clear it again today and hope that's enough to bury any masking lines.

    Looking most excellent.
    I saw a black '57 over by the Cobblestone Pub.
    It looked like it had Edsel tail lights.
    Do you know of this one?

  26. Thanks Dave. The only black Ranchero I know of around has no side trim and side pipes. I think it has stock tail lights though. Sound like it?

    Looking good but I kind of like the way the green contrast with the blue, even though I know it's tape. It just caught my eye better than the silver. But overall, I like how the Ranchy is looking.
