    Nice work on some really nice SIVs.

    I like buffing out cars like the 1941 Chevy Coupe because of the easy to buff rounded body style.

    Just the opposite with the Grand National. So many sharp, hard edges and body lines. We've had a number of these cars and their cousins plus the Monte Carlos shaped like this here at Autogeek for classes and projects and if they have the original single stage paint you have to be very careful or you can burn through and edge. For the most part, unless they've been repainted with basecoat/clearcoat paint system I tend to turn them down for classes - just to risky.

    I'd take the 1972 Chevy truck all day long...


    Thanks for sharing.

    Ya, the '41 Coupe was one of the most enjoyable, fun cars I have ever done.

    I have done two Grand National's. That one above was base coat/ clear coat.

    The other was original ss paint. It was pretty rough and the paint was on the thin side to begin with.
    I was definitely on edge and insanely cautious with that one. Definitely not one of my more favorable jobs to do lol.

    I have been racking my brain but I got nothing..... what does SIVs mean?

    Before


    After


    More of the '41....

    Thanks much for the kind words
    Definitely enjoy taking after pictures. Getting flowing, creative angles.

    I usually do that for every vehicle I do like the '41

    I tend to do the same, but don’t always do so well on taking before or process pictures unfortunately.

    Forgot to mention in my previous post, that Shelby pic at the top of the page, that’s a perfect wallpaper background.

    Or if I was a kid again, PERFECT dream car poster like many of us had of the Countach or F40 as children.

    Nice job.
    @98CayenneTA - slightly off topic, where in MN are you located?
    I'm a few blocks from the state fair grounds in Falcon Heights.
