Starting to dig in on some of the sub assemblies while the car is at the painter. I'm way behind as I was tied up with some home improvement projects. Feels good to put something on the shelf complete and ready for install when the car comes back. Not going for factory correct, I'll detail the items that will show and make a difference. Items like this that are under the dash, I just want paint on it so it's clean and won't rust.

Here are a few of my first, "almost" finished piece of stainless trim. I did all the polishing on a previous restoration but I had forgotten how time consuming and tedious this was. If anyone has some tips or secrets I'm all ears.

Just got some pictures back from the painter. I'm debating a black vinyl top. Let me know what you think.

Car looks beautiful ! A couple of quick questions:

(1) When the body was stripped, it looks like you painted the interior floors with a black coating. What did you use?

(2) What did you paint your pedal assembly with color and brand ?

(3) What size wheels did you get ?

(4) Do you have any pictures of the finished painted interior ? I am trying to decide on color and am interested in what people do on the inside vs. outside.

Thanks

Chris

Hope you did not do the vinyl top. My GTO had a factory one. When it went for the big repaint job, painter stripped off the vinyl top and found surface rust and pinholes (AAARRRGGH). Anyway, he repaired the metal, used quality primer, bc/cc, and she is looking good. With the potential rusting issues, I would never have another vinyl top. FWIW

Chris,
The product I used on the floors inside and underneath is called Raptor. There are several similar products out there, another is called Lizard skin. Very similar to a bed liner.

I think I used the gloss black industrial paint in the spray bomb from Rustoleum. I use an etch primer first then topcoat.

Rear wheels are 18 x 9.5 and fronts are 17 x 8.

I'll try and get some of the interior. It's just a black my painter uses on most of his GM restos. I beleive it has what he calls a 20 or 40% flatening agent in it to reduce the glare off the dash.

Haven't bit the bullet on the top yet, thanks for the input. I have been thinking about alternatives but it will never see rain anyway.
Thanks, Rob

Thanks Rob! Your car looks great! What is powering the beast ? Have you put it on the dyno ?
