1967 Shelby GT500 "Eleanor" Correction - Lucci Elite
This correction was done for the same client with the Acura NSX and the SLS once the Mercedes was complete I dropped it off and got the opportunity to drive this masterpiece back to the shop for correction. Growing up this was my dream car as my dad and I always looked at buying one and fixing one up but never was able to find one that we could fix up so when I found out he wanted to have this car corrected as well I was more excited to do it then any Bugatti or Lambo that comes in the shop. This particular car was used on set for the gone in 60 seconds movie and was in pretty pristine condition all over but the paint had some issues! They weren't very many swirls due to the clear coat being on the harder side but there were plenty of deeper rids. I finally got to use the little 3 inch Rupes tool and I honestly am speechless it was cutting rids out faster than any combo on the Griot's and on top of that I was able to cut out rids with just the compounding foam from Rupes. Make sure to place your order with Kevin Brown Asap its a game changer for sure!

Awesome! I have one of these Eleanor cars but can't get the cast wheels clean, what did you use on them?
Outstanding work as usual.
