    Another GORGEOUS care completed by Chase!


    This was a VERY interesting client. He came to me THROUGH a local hotrod builder, but had the builder bring me the car. This Chevelle was actually delivered by the shop owner after he installed a new Vintage Air system in it. The car was actually built by another shop in Tennessee, but the client just moved to Alabama. He's been burned in the past, quite badly, so Tim (shop owner here in town, that delivered me the car) are out to win him over. You'll find out if that happened at at the end of this writeup!! For the budget, we were shooting for about 85% correct. Here's how the bomb got built:

    ON TO THE PICS!!! Here's how this poor baby arrived :(

    After compounding/polishing, time for a quick wipe with a Singlesoft towel & IPA mix, to prep for the sealant:

    I don't normally get to use this sealant, due to the cure time, but I had this car overnight so I was STOKED to "lay it down" :)

    The client was "over the moon" with his excitement for the end result! Said we were the FIRST two guys to take his money, and actually DELIVER on what we promised!! He's got over 30 classics & hotrods, so we'll see where this leads!! Thanks for looking! And as always, I'm here if you have any questions! :)
