Amazing work, John!

You got the paint laid down SO well!

Your gold lines are super-crisp.

As I've just completed a Watson tribute, I'm massively impressed with yours.

You totally nailed it and I'm sure Mr Watson would admire it with respect!

As much as I liked the Blackbird, I have to say that I like your color combination better, it fits the car and is in keeping with Larry Watson's colors on many of the cars he painted. Not all of his panel paint jobs were done with candies and pearls.

Wow! A nice surprise seeing this old thread resurface! Thanks for the additional comments, guys!

And, Chris, a special thank you for supplying the answer to the question regarding the original source of the '59 Dodge caps! Come to think of it they would look great on a '62 Imperial!
