Paint - Cut and Buff is (half) Complete

I just finished color sanding and buffing the top half of the Corvette.  The car is full of static electricity so if you click on any of the photos and see something it's probably lint or dust.  Also, the door and hood jambs are full of compound so ignore that as well.

The paint looks spectacular to me and I am very happy with the results.  It's not flawless, but it makes me smile.  Check out the photos and judge for yourself.

My neighbors house.

Next I'll start sanding and buffing the lower half of the car.  The car is filthy but I''ll wait until the whole car is done before I take it to the car wash.

Thanks for watching and be sure to let me know what you think.


  1. Wow. Just simply, wow! That paint job looks like it's water. I don't have a full scale '63 to play with, so I just have to settle for scale model cars (working on a 1/12 '67 Vette right now) and getting paint jobs like that is always satisfying. Can only imagine what it must feel like for a 1:1 scale car. AMAZING JOB!


  2. Justin, great comment and I really appreciate the feedback. Thanks for taking the time to let me know how I am doing.


  3. I couldn't help myself - I had to enlarge every pic. and it's very impressive. The buffed paint shows off how well the body parts fit together. I expected nothing less and you should be very proud.

  4. Jim Q,

    I value and always look forward to your input. Thanks for the kind words and encouragement.
