Thanks for ALL the replys! It means ALOT to me to see that people appreciate my work, especially from the vets who been puttin in work themselves.
Yeah, my original plan was to have the body Kandy Rootbeer Brown & the Roof and fins to be Gold Metalflake.
For stripping I used Aircraft remover to get most of the OG paint off, then a 3M Stripping wheel. It's black & sorta looks "sponge-like" but it's tough.
Now for the bad news:I can't post up more pics of the frame, cuz I haven't completed it yet. See I was doing all this work to it out in Colorado & plans changed so I moved back to Iowa.
I had to tack the body mounts back on & put EVERYTHING back together, UNFINISHED! I only got the bottom plated so far.
Right now it's sitting in storage out there until I go back out there in July 06' to pick it up. So, right now I'm doing the frame wrap on my Coupe D here in Iowa.
If anybody has comments or ideas for the 59', they're GREATLY appreciated!
I'm still flippin back & forth wether I'll do it Traditional/Cali-style or Old School Kustom/Lowrider.
