    Default 1962 Corvette revisited for correction and coating

    I had done this car a few times, but after a few corrections I recommended we coat the car this time. I knew it would continue to get swirled up as its wiped down constantly as it goes to most Corvette and classic car shows in the Bay Area. The owner is also extremely active in welcoming troops home from deployment and gives them rides in the car, equipped with flags and all (the posts attached to the back serve is purpose). The owner liked the idea of not diminishing any more of the clear (was restored in the 80's with base/clear) than necessary.



    Getting started... the usual swirls from constant wipedowns at carshows.













    Before




    After











    Hand painted script taped off with a safe border

















    Pre-existing damage from poor alignment of the trunk lid






    Laying down on the job..........and getting it done







    Glossy!






    Can't post a car like this and not post engine pics!










    All finished! The posts on the back are for 2 large American flags when the car participates in parades welcoming troops home.

    Nice Vette indeed. What exactly did you coat it WITH? One of the new quartz-like coatings? Still afraid to try those.

    If you are going to put words in my mouth, at least try to be more articulate.
