Well it's been a long time since I have posted any picture's of the cars I have been working on.

I will start with the 63 Corvette.

It had a cameo role in the movie Days of Thunder! wow.

It has a 327ci with a 3sped auto. The front is missing the two bumpers and the turn signals are mounted in the grill.

The car had a old as well as a bad repaint and would never be perfict. It is going to auction and this pig just needed a new dress.

I removed the grill and painted it black removed the side moulding and re sprauyed black again. The door jambs needed to be touched up as well aith a little paint.

All chrome was cleaned with 0000 steel wool and wiped clean.

I wet sanded the entire car with 3M 2000. Then compounded heavy with Menzerna PGC nd a lambs wool pad.

ANext I used the lambs wool and the Optimum polish to remove the swirling from the compound.

After I polished with OP and a white LC pad.

I applied two coats of Opti-Seal then a coat of Trade Secret for show

Tires received Opti-Bond tire gel and the interior was wiped down with the New Protectant Plus.

This car was nothing spectacular when done but people sure would stop and ask about it and look at it.
