    I'm not changing the color. I'm painting it the color that the original builder had intended.

    Then I started playing around with headlight treatments. I think I've settled on these units from a '59 Chevy. It will have a tube grille in between them.

    Last night I got the sides all smoothed out. No more door handles, door locks, scripts, or fuel cap.

    Exactly! The original builder had some good ideas but lacked a little bit in execution. Lol
    I sure hope so!
    Lmao!
    Thank you so much!

    I use whitewall cleaner.

    Nice lookin' Poncho!
    The clear went on without incident. I'll give it a few days, then I'll wetsand it, throw down another coat or two of clear, then I'll be ready to start the polishing process.

    Wow! Thank you for putting it that way! It's very flattering! If you look at the first couple of pictures after the car was stripped, you can see some blue paint on the roof. The layers of paint went: black, silver, blue, then black again. I believe the black to be primer, the silver the base, and blue must've been the desired color. When that didn't work out, the blue was then primed over again in black. Judging by the cracking in the black, I would guess that the primer was too hot for the blue and crazed which most likely ended up killing the progress of this car. Sorry to go all CSI on you but in keeping with the original builder's vision, I will be painting the car blue.

    Ok. Foil and decals are on. I'm off to bed. Clear goes on tomorrow...

    I made several attempts to match the paint color using Testors paints and I got pretty darn close (so much so that I painted it) but it was only that close under fluorescent lighting and not under regular lighting. UGH! So I stripped it back down. I saw another '65 Satellite being built on here and it was painted with Duplicolor primer and Duplicolor color and he had no issues. I have NO idea why I've had so many problems but it pushed me to try it ONE more time. It didn't craze this time but I ended up getting a pretty rough surface. I figured I would throw some clear on the hood and see what I had and so far, it's looking like it should work. I'm thinking that I'll be able to knock down the roughness and smooth out the clear top coats with wet sanding and I should be in good shape. Hopefully. Lol. Anyways, I'm applying BMF and decals and then I'll be hitting the body too. Wish me luck!
