    Really nice build in such a short time.
    Beautiful paint, how did you get it dry enough to polish in 1 day? and what kind is it?
    Next touch up would be chrome trunk hinges?

    Depends on which engine in which car, 6 or 8, t-bird, full size or truck. Google shows mostly red repaints, but there are also green, turquoise, yellow and black in some stock unrestored pics. Looks like you can take your pick.

    That looks great, love to see someone do well with a restoration.

    Nice job, but I think your driver is going to want a little more protection out back.

    Now I can't post pics from anywhere, guess I'll have to work on this.

    Beautiful work Pavel, I really like the "Mother-in-laws" seat out back!

    I've had luck heating my paint cans with an old adjustable heat iron, set on it's lowest setting. I turn the iron upside down in my bench vice, plug it in and set the paint I'm going to use on the bottom of the iron. Shake the paint as usual before it's put on the iron and after. The cans warm up to a comfortable temp to hold in your hand and the paint lays down really well with a nice gloss, it also dries faster. To test the temp of your iron place an open can half full of water on it, let it sit for about 5 minutes and carefully check the can to see if you can hold it. Better safe than sorry.
