1969 442

Late July she is done!

early July and the body goes in for primer
Early June the outer and inner quarter panle is done

The 442 comes apart and the metal work starts on the fenders.

Our first North American muscle car we have taken on here at Original Restorations. The owner has had her for a long time, and I like this car.

1968 Volvo 1800

This nice little car arrived in late Jan. We have taken her apart and now are repairing all the chips, rust, dents. It is a very solid car and one of the nicest examples of this version Volvo I have seen. We are going to make her sweet. This type of job I would describe as a "Paint Job"

Show and Tell

30+ car enthusiasts representing 5 different local car clubs came by for a vist. We did a metal straightening demo and sanding and polishing demo. We had great feedback and, more than one guest expressed that this was the best shop tour their clubs had ever done. I had fun too.
