 Today I had stopped by Buddy Hale shop Type one Restoration to see the progress on the 66 Cal Looker. The car is in its final stages before paint this Friday or early next week. After I take the car home i will let the paint cure for 30 days before taking it back for the wet sanding and buff.

Stopped by Buddy Hale shop today Type One Restoration as the car was painted earlier this week . Wanted to see how it looked L639 is the paint code for the Zenith Blue the last time the car was painted June of last year and waited 30 days before taking it back . Buddy and I had gone around the car and felt that the body work needed more attention. So we decided to re do the entire car and re priming and blocking it again until we were satisfied with the out come. So after two month of doing extensive re work on the body it was painted this past Tuesday and today I saw a big difference not only in the color change but on how straight the car is. Today they were using the yellow tape to make a tape line from the under side of the body where it will receive a special undercoating as you see on the bed liners of trucks which is more durable and much stronger. So the underside of the body will be getting this treatment including all four fenders. Next week Wednesday I will be picking up the car where it will sit in my garage for 30 days for the paint to cure than taking it back for the final wet sanding and buff this usually take a couple of week to get done. All I can say I am so fortunate to of had met Buddy Hale over 20 years ago when he did my 54 Oval window and now his work is over the top. If you have the chance to have Buddy Hale do one of your car you will see what I mean .

  Thanks

   Buddy Hale called me this past week and told me to bring him the car on August the 15th so he could start wet sanding and final buff so in a few week it will be going to my other friend to get the headliner installed than coming home for the body to go back on the pan. Than the fun begins . Stay tune for the next chapter !!!
