When I started working on the paintwork my main goal was to bring back some of this cars original beauty. I owned/operated a niche detailing business for 10 years but focused on exotics and sports car cream puff garage queens and while they presented thier own set of challenges I never had a project similar to this and didn't know what could be achieved or even what my technique would be.

I am almost halfway done and have exceeded my expectations.
