So Mikey has had some issues with the 53 so we went and took it to the Dr.'s Office and Dr. RC got to werkin' on her.
First he's fitting the body parts better

and then he fixed the rear quarter issue and got the fender to stop rubbing on the tires when Mikey takes wild turns

Stay tuned for more on Mikey's 53 BUICK ( oh yeah,He's getting a paint job too)

JAY's 1956 PLYMOUTH BELVEDERE (pt.3)

"This is like 3 coats of clear, still more to go"
Go good together yes?
"Alright now moving on.. Unmasked while wet to stop bridging"

Dr. RC says "Thanks to Steve Karp I've met you guys. Your a good lot really. And I thank you for giving me the opportunity to use my abilities to help keep an old skool tradition alive. And also like to thank you for all your positive feed back. It helps keep me going in a trade I've thought many times to get out of,out of frustration of the average cookie cutter bullshit most people want. Cheers fellas!"

"Ok on to sanding the clear on jays car, lengthy process but the result is worth it. Clear is still soft so it sands hard but should buff like butter"
"No feeling like knowing you only got that much left to wet sand"
"Now it looks like glass!"
"Roof view"
"Day off HA!! Who needs em?! Little quick priming of jays fender and hood before I roll out to Brooklyn"
Quick wet sand and buff and getting the dash ready for paint, adjusted the deck lid with shims and a few other tid bits tonight


"Jays car in paint the gloss will prob die back a little bit but not much more"

"Jammed! Shell tomorrow"
