    Looks like you could spend a whole day or more on just those wheels...

    Front bumper and trim looks really nice.

    The color doesn't lend itself well to seeing what the paint really looks like in pics, but I'm sure it looks great too.

    I didn't mess with the wheels but I helped the owner to pick out a great wheel cleaner and wheel brush and he's going to tackle on his own.

    I machine polished all the britework as well as the glass. This always "completes" the pictures for the end-results.

    Great classic period color: Pale Primrose Yellow, I think.

    How did you handle the aluminum trim around the windows? Isn't it anodized or coated?
