Great job so far! It's cool to see a retro car brought back to life. Can't wait to see more.

Cleaned and buffed the windows. The stains couldn't be removed with just soap so I had to rub it down with buffing compound and a buffing machine.

Before:





After





Sprayed 5 layers*of clear gloss top coat.







Will wet sand and buff tomorrow once the clear coat is cured and do the window side panels, mpulding, grill, door handles and rear plate garnish with flat black. Then install the lights.

WOW! Fantastic job on the body! It turned out great. Nice detail on the black trim and the lenses for the lights. Nice metallic flake, I didn't notice that before.

Thanks! I mixed a few drops of silver on the Teal base color to make a metallic finish. For stronger metallic effect, just add a few more drops depending on your liking. But for pearl finish, the silver has to be mixed with the clear top coat.

So I've had this pair of shock mounts since last March and I have never really decided whether to use it or not.


I was contemplating on creating holes on the rear part of the chassis to install this but the 100mm shocks doesn't need to stretch out in the back like it needs in front. But since the original mount of the CC01 is plastic, I decided to use this aluminum mounts and place it sideways. In that way, it can be adjusted to many setting. Forward, backward, higher or lower. The result is great.





I also installed strut bars using some spare adjustable links I had, front and rear. It actually helped a lot in stiffening the chassis.
