What a great car! Looks like your doing a really nice restoration on it. I restored mine back to the original Dark Moss Green Metallic as well. I wish it was a real shelby though. )-:

Beautiful work! I wish the body shop I ended up using had done work even 1/2 as good! That is going to be an amazing paint job when you are all done.

We attached the seal to the deck lid before I painted the other side



I sprayed a coat of reduced epoxy as a sealer now sand out any dirt with 800 and they are ready for paint

And here I was this afternoon proud of myself finally priming my quarter panel with SPI Epoxy. Didn't do a very good job... I guess it's a learning experience though, just takes practice.

All that goes to say that your work looks incredible!

The body is now green with 2 coats of clear. The owner want's white stripes but I think it looks richer without stripes and I'm trying to talk him out of stripes. My camera does not take very good pictures in the booth it almost looks black.

I sure hope you can talk him out of the stripes. I put them on my old 67 GT500 and after a few years I wished I had left them off. Maybe it will help to explain that they didn't come from the factory that way and the few that had them were dealer installed. (If he didn't know that already) Every Shelby wannbe and most real ones have them now. It's refreshing to see one without.

He knows all about the Shelby's and the funny thing is he did a poll on the Shelby forum and most liked it without stripes.
