Such a beautiful car!!!

I don't remember if you said, have you painted a car before? If not, I am inspired. I think I could do it but I don't have much space. I certainly have the tools.

Enjoy the Corvair!

Thanks!! I've painted one or two, but never to this degree. Usually just a fender or hood, a couple motorcycle tanks, etc.. That said it's been 20 years since I've painted anything. I had to borrow a paint gun, and relearn, and ask lots of questions! I painted it in the center of my dirty garage with a few fans pulling the air out the garage door and wetting down the floor. I will say it took a lot of time and patients! Looking forward to getting the interior done and Driving it as much as I can!!!cool smiley

Good for you and nice job. I did all body and prep work that took several years. My wife normally is very supportive said its time to spend some money and have it finished by a paint shop. This was a base coat clear coat, and one of my hunting buddies was in the business. It was a CASH job and he was very impressed with my prep work. Glad I did it that way.
