I figured I needed to wrap this journal since the journey has come to a sad (to me) end. After a 3 year restoration process that was HUGELY assisted by the kind and very educated folks on this site, the car left today for its new home. A very nice lady picked it up today to surprise her husband with it for a birthday gift. I couldn't have hoped for a better new owner. I wont say who or where for fear of spoiling the surprise.

I got all that worked out as well as a few other things done like wheel ...

Paint before

Making good progress these days and each task seems to make a bigger difference in how complete the car looks. The part I expected to be the most tedious turned out to be less time consuming than I thought it might. Granted I did it in pieces over many evenings, it may have been more overwhelming if I did it all at once. That job was the color sanding of the paint. I didn’t have many runs or flaws in the paint but I did have a decent amount of orange peel which made the reflection look ver...
