    Thanks for all the comments.
    I do have a lot of color sanding and buffing to make it look the way I want it to.

    The paint is DuPont centari. Acrylic Enamel.

    Wow. That is outstanding. When comparing to what you started with, to what you have now. Great work.

    I'm not going to make my deadline of having the 32 done for the Hotrod Hill Climb. I stopped the goal before it tempted me to cut corners. I've turned my efforts to getting my T ready instead. Doing just a few things to it.
    Below is a pic of me letting my son spray a few brackets for the 32. He was excited to help.

    Here is my temporary distraction from the 32.

  17. Great shots! Nice way to keep him involved.

    Looks like you got the A sedan out in the air, too. Been driving it?

    Taking the whitewalls off'n the T?

    The A gets lots of use. It's the family rod.
    Yep, wires and whitewalls gone from the T for now.
    The T is also going to compete at TROG

    That's it. Crotch rocket guys marked the 1/4 mile off. I use it as my test and tune area for all my cars. Even staged a few grudge matches there. You could actually get a bunch of cars there and stage some good photos.

    All right, I'm back at the 32 now. Had a great time with the T at the Hotrod Hill Climb. The T is headed out for TROG too.

    Today, I completed a few things on the brake lines and mounted the pedals and master cylinder.

    Here is the T, race ready.

    Back at the 32.
