Progress so far. Engine and chassis are mated. Interior painted. Still have to do some finishing touches to the dash. Body painted. Not to pat myself on the back but, by far the nicest black paint job I have ever done. No clear cote, Straight rustoleum gloss black spray over rustoleum white primer. Now getting really excited about finishing it. Can't wait to see it with all the chrome done. Thanks for looking.

Been enjoying watching your build. Your black paint job reminds of a friend's car that was also a Catalina convertible done in black with the maroon interior.
