Stripped away some more history today. Grill shell (sanded) completely done and started on the hood.

Steve,

Glad to see that you're making good progress on your Legend car. Looking forwarding to seeing it when it's finally all done.

Keep up the good work and make sure to have fun while you're at it. BTW - Like the VMS T-shirt!

Take care and stay safe! Mark

Thanks Mark! Working on getting the hood sanded down. This came from Jim's car (the old lime green and purple paint scheme). lol! He didn't have good luck with that car. All those new rod ends and heims came from VMS as well. ;)

Sanded a bunch today. It's interesting to remember some of the paint colors and get the history behind each and every part that is going on the car. Some of the folks I talked to never even remembered the body parts being that color. I am covered in layers of paint dust!!! Eyes, ears, nose, clothes, etc... What an awesome day!!!!

Generator and air compressor are up and running. This should speed things along! To this point, been doing everything by hand.

I got the air scoop, trunk lid and right side door done today. I know that Craig bought the car already painted Yellow. Gel coat was white (of course). next layer was a dark purple, an Army green color, Black, Neon orange, then the neon yellow. Stripped Jim's old hood down; White gel coat, red and lime green. Wish I knew all the history behind all the different colors. Have followed Jim for a number of years, so know his colors. Grill shell I got from Josh Thomas. Many different colors on that as well. I have paint dust in my eyes, ears, nose and some places you all don't want to know about. What a great day!!!
