              One step/day at a time. You have great skills that can help take your mind off things, keep at it and heal up.

                thank you. On 4th of July a drunk driver crossed center head on. I reacted and lost it and spun into a railroad tie mailbox stand and a fence. I was seriously depressed after and it took a tole. My lady, family and friends were a life savor. I happened to reunite with the original painter of the car and he is doing me a massive favor! We have been working our asses off and I’m blown away by his generosity.

                  Pretty cool gesture on painters part. Silver lining in the cloud and a great support system.

                      Did they get the drunk driver or did he get away??? I hope they nailed his (or her) ass hard.

                        Man, that's looking awesome!

                        What all was done to the engine bay? Any before photos?

                        they got him. Suspended license, no insurance, and no job. Hagerty insurance screwed me too.

                              Hell yeah! Thats what I'm talking about. People who watch all these shows think this type of job takes about 30-45 mins That's a lot of work! Keep us posted on the final product!

                              How did Hagerty screw you over? If you don't mind sharing, of course. I use them currently on my 68 Dart.

                                Hi, could you tell the brand and type of paint you are using?
                                thanks, John

                                So the "green pearl clear"......is that like a modern version of the transparent colors we used to shoot to get candy effects?

                                Can you elaborate on the Hagerty incident?

                                    Looks great. I was wondering what happened, hadn’t seen a your car posted in a long time. Your car is one of my fav’s, reminds me of one I have in the garage.

                                        Hagerty gave me $4500 to fix this,

                                        We hung a new quarter on the car. Donor deck lid, donor door, pulled rocker out. It bent drip rail and put dents in roof an c-pillar. It was nearly a total.

                                          will be using sherwin Williams paint. I’m not exactly sure on the product line yet.
