Man, does that ever bring back memories for me...nice work Chris!

Can't wait to see it in person, that's a great feeling to have done it yourself. Seems like the Florida guys have all done our own paintwork, that's kind of unexpected, but awesome.

I can't actually ever imagine having enough time to do all that again, so I hope my paint holds up another 10 years.

Thanks for all the pics,

D

Looks great Chris! I always enjoyed painting my cars over the years. Just that fulfilling feeling of self satisfaction when the project is complete and you can say "I did it myself". As far as I'm concerned, anyone can pay to have a car painted but very few can truly do it themselves. Oh by the way nice spray booth:D Can I rent it from you next time I paint a car?;)

Great job! I can't wait to see it in person.

Well...one thing is for sure, the paint will stick to the tires now with all that primer on them:D

I wish I had the know how and tools to do paint n body.

I wish I had a booth to do my Anny.. I'd love to get that project put to bed!

I still have the seats to do but all the removable pieces have already been painted and are sitting around getting banged up.. I need to get the body painted and polished up like DAN'S "Black Mirror"!!:D

Flip is right! Chris did a great job on his SC. He did a great job painting the car and picked a fantastic color on top of that.

You want to paint a 69 Cougar Chris? :D

The paint really pops in person, Chris has great attention to detail and skill as a painter too. Looks completely show worthy from all distances, 20 ft away or 1 ft away.
