    I want to knock off the old primer before winter sets it. Soda blows it off a lot quicker than wet sanding and the under paint can get wet sanded in the winter.
    I dont mind the stock colour but I'll lean it more towards teal ( at least thats my thinking for the day, its bound to change.) :yup:

    Was it originally grey or is that another primer layer?

    It's an original light blue. I need to dig up the colour code chip for it.

    Lono, wierd small world yesterday....you PM'd me about mags and I said "no, I have nothing for sale at the moment on Used Vic" I know they are not what you were after, but none the less look at what I found and took home from the dump yesterday:rofl:


    I havn't measured the bolt pattern yet, but the will be on Used Vic shortly after i clean them up. They are presentable drivers, not show wheels.

    Glad I'm not building .. just "hording" [​IMG]
    Funny how a good set of wheels makes a rats nest look cool. [​IMG]
    I do know now that if a repaint is in its future, I like the original colour just fine.
    I've been driving it on permits, getting to know its quirks and I wouldn't be afriad to take it on a long haul.
    I did a compression test and was pleaed to get 145 across the board. The last owner said it was rebuilt but I dont really listen to that kind of story without documentation.

    I did find a very nice set of vintage Fenton wheels and excellent tires. Yum yum. :clap:

    If you need any of 6 cylider performance parts, Bob Langdon has a lot of very nice stuff.
    His company is Langdon's Stovebolt Engine Co.
    web site: http://www.stoveboltengineco.com/

    And he's into the hobby, too.
    I posted some pix earlier this year of a Suburban he just finished.

    been so far away from the shop it hurts lately.

    I did manage to get some fun bling to add to the body.
    a little Impala bling to brighten up them long quarter panels.

    I've been talking with a local silver smith about car scripts and thought to myself... " self, wouldnt it be cool to have some new scripts made for the old girl..."

    Lono, you're doing a great job. As I recall, that light blue was a very popular color in 1958, (yes, unfortunately, I can remember back that far)! You're doing a great job. She's looking so much better already. Throw some of that paint on there and you'll definitely have a head turner. I'm not seeing any hint of rust on there, am I right?

    She'll get a repaint somewhere down the line. For now I'me trying to spiff it up with a little added nomad trim. Next summer I plan on having it on the road full time. I've been booting around without liscense to get to know it and pretty happy with how its running.
