    You should leave it primer and just clear it! It looks good that color.

    Really? Your picture looks like light gray. As mine is more dark gray.
    They do change in the light though

    Yea my bud is specialized in Vdubs. Gets them from all over the Country to fully restore. He is widely known in the Vdub world and is a year younger than me at 25 or 26.

    Another friend of ours does custom paint mixing. Time to paint soon, double metallic turned too pink as its red metallic flakes. Reflected too pink in the sun. Going to do a couple of custom mixes with Ford color with a few different metallics and pearl added in. Not paying this much with this much work for exactly stock color.

    Did epoxy prime and have been blocking it down for a while to get it straight and fill body imperfections. Itll go into booth once figure out what i want for paint but it still has some work till that point

    Great to see someone spend so much effort restoring a SHO.
    Keep up the hard work, and continue posting pictures.

    It will be at Carlisle Ford Nationals next summer. Not "selling" it but it will be available for trade as ive been looking for a mid 60s to mid 70s Ford truck in good shape.

    In booth for spot priming after the blocking and filling was done. Body was in pretty excellent shape. Few little metal defects came out after blocking.
