Check out the mostly original New Yorker. What a huge car this is.
The paint is off and the sheet metal repair is underway. The next step after the polyester filler skim coat is an epoxy sealer designed to insure a good solid, water tight base to apply the primer on. The primer will then be blocked and re-primed and then again blocked in preparation for color.
Great progress is be made and the car is not painted. We are in the process of color sanding and buffing the car. As parts are completed they will be installed onto the car and it will beging to take on its new identity.
Just keeps moving along. The weather stripping and windows are going back in now.
Thanks for adding the newest pictures; now son Stephan can see the colors. Bruce & Steve
It’s looking more beautiful with each new picture. Bruce 3/26/13
Randy, what you showed me in the body shop last week sure
looked absolutely beautiful to me, the beginning of the fulfillment
of a 30 year + dream. My son liked the paint samples very much,
but I want to share another comment he made. Also, regarding my
concept of “beautiful”, I have another story about the engine
rebuild I’d like to share with you some time. Lastly, boxes of
parts are now all down from my attic. Bruce & Steve
It’s amazing how solid this car is and the original paint means no surprises.
