    1951 Chevrolet Styleline

    Did this the other day...1951 Chevrolet Styleline. Repainted about 8 years ago with Fords Ink Blue Metallic that you see on a lot of Ford Fusions.

    No before picture's for I was not really planning on documenting it.

    - Carpro Ultracut (spot treatment)
    - Blackfire One Step
    - FLEX XCE 10-8 125

    I have been a massive rotary for cutting, free spinning for finishing guy forever but the FLEX XCE 10-8 125 is quickly becoming my favorite tool.

    Very nice!

    Isn't it so cool to work on unique cars?

    Most certainly !
    I love working on the body lines of stuff like this but it is also very cool looking at some of the 70+ year old engineering in some of this stuff.

    What a cool car!

    Love the paint color and the reflection shots of the clouds. That paint looks outstanding!

    Nice work, thanks for sharing

    Awesome work! That color combined with the white walls just does it for me, very classy.

    BTW how do you like the Ultracut compared to something like 3D ACA 500?

    I have not had a chance to use the Ultra Cut with a rotary yet but on the da it cuts just as well if not better and finishes down much nicer.

    Ultra cut is seriously impressive and as of right now prefer it over Menz. 400 and Sonax Cutmax also. Cuts much better and actually finishes down better. They nailed it with that compound

    This weekend I will do a comparison between ACA 500 and Ultracut on the rotary and post back here

    You just earn this patch...




    and welcome to the flex club. LOL Dont get me wrong .... the rotary still has its place but with the latest abrasive technology and pads I dont do much with the rotary these days.

    Did you dive into the paint? It looks wet and deep. Beautiful job on a beautiful car.
