    Re: The Number #7 Rub Down Technique for Original Single Stage Paint - All original 1938 Packard

    Mike!!! Wow! What an outstanding opportunity!!!

    You know all too well my love of this type of work too & well - colour me green with envy!!!

    I must say, I am very very fortunate to have a couple of original single stage jobs coming up myself. Whether or not #7 will be required is yet to be determined but you know Iíll be taking a bunch of pictures.

    Enjoy this one Mike, an absolute gem of a job.

    I’ve done this before on an old Merc, customer literally had tears when he saw his car.

    Thank you for sharing this paint restoration you did, you really knocked it out of the park.

    Very cool.

    Mike, did you have to throw out those PFM towels after the job was all done or do they wash out clean enough?

    They are in the dryer now, will know how well they came out in about a half hour.


    Here's the first wash cycle, I washed them 3 times.
