    Another cool car to work on. Mike, you always bring the good stuff (cars)!

    PLEASE take good pics showing how you work them curves on the front fenders (and rears).

    It all comes down to relationships and earning other people's trust.

    For sure.

    Elliot our SMG will be here until noon to take some FB Live videos so maybe we'll be working the fenders while here's here. And of course, I will take some pictures too...

    ***Update***


    Here's a few BEFORE pictures of this cool streetrod....









    Later after Mike the owner finishes assembling the car inside and out, we'll have it back, park it in the same place and take the after pictures. Probably be sometime in January as he still needs to put the interior in.


    The tip or lesson to everyone reading this... when working on epic projects....

    Take great before pictures!


    You can never go back in time and get the before shots after all the work is over. That is unless Sheldon Cooper, Leonard Hofstadter, Rajesh Koothrappali and Howard Wolowitz will let you borrow their time machine.




    Probably faster and easier just to take pictures...

    But that's not all!...


    Moved the Model A into the garage and took a few pictures to show the orange peel. If you're new to wet sanding, that's okay - we were all new at one time. While most people gravitate towards swirl finder lights to look for swirls - for orange peel what works GREAT is normal florescent lights.


    Here's a few pictures...


    Orange Peel
    I opened the garage bay door as it puts a strip of sunlight shining through the garage onto the large flat panel on the side and highlights the orange peel texture common to new/custom paint jobs.






    Here you can see the garage bay door open...





    Here you can see the orange peel...








    I adjusted a camera setting to darken the shot...





    Looks like the texture on the peel of an orange - See the yellow pole in the reflection?




    It's this pole - if we do the job right, when the Model A comes back we'll take after shots and we should see dramatically more clear and defined reflections.

    Yet more....


    There's a lot of thin panels and intricate areas on these old body designs so to work these small areas we're going to get small to quote Steve Martin...
















    Time to shut down the Show Car Garage!


    I'll be here tomorrow morning around 8:00am

    See everyone tomorrow...

    Car looks cool but I wouldn't want to be in any kind of car accident in these things. Looks like its as strong as a lunchbox.
