Painting is imminent...

It's begun. I finished painting the door jambs, backs of hood and deck lid, and all the other areas that will be only occasionally or partially visible once the car is assembled. Doing these parts was a good dress rehearsal for the main event, which will follow after I hang all the sheet metal.

Bear- that is sweet! And Black. My favorite two colors are Black and Chrome.
Keep us posted on your progress. Looking good! Yeah I'm pumped. My 65 is in the booth now. Few more weeks and it will be in my garage...
