    I do like that gray with black, however probably Red would appeal to more buyers.

    I am partial to the Acapulco Blue myself, but I do like the Grey with black hood or strips and an option.

    staffy got a reaction from Grabber70Mach in 69 Restomod (UK)   
    I was being optimistic to be fair, but I have aligned most of the panels and striped a few down to bare metal.
    Major jobs are the Door skin to change,  hood front to sort (minor dents) and the repro fender to sort out.
    my guy is pretty fast and he has capacity now, so that’s why it’s gone a little earlier then I expected it 
    he re-painted my Mach 1 about 12 months ago so I know his work.
    Just need to  decide on paint colour, I’m really torn on colour, Wish me luck

    You guys in the US are so lucky to have space and relatively cheap real estate, unless of course you live in cities like San Fran, Seattle etc. Real estate and space over here in the U.K. is expensive and hard to come back. 
    not long finished my new garage, 6metresx4metres which I think is small by US standards, but I managed to get in  a 2 post hoist and lots of Dexion storage racking,
    id love a lathe  to teach myself but alas unlikely as not enough space :-(

    I have one. Get the bigger batteries and they will last quite a while . I use mine for tear down ,it will zip fenders quick and easy . It will handle most smaller bolts ,i have used mine to remove bumpers but any bigger bolt it probably will not touch

    Sorry guys no6 had chance r]to do many updates. 
    I work as a Chief Engineer/Head of Facilties for a group of hospitals in the U.K., so been rather busy with Covid19, but still getting sporadic hours on her, had a week off recently and spent It on the car.
    Summary; Put U pol raptor on inside, front rad support replaced, took hood, trunk and other panels down to bare metal, etch and high filler primer applied. 
    started to get the panels back on and aligned, I really hate this part of the job ! 
    hopefully the car will be collected for paint in next 1/2 weeks, going for a black top coat.

    Now you're gona make me blush... I have been inspired by so many other's who have talents much greater than mine, and many of them I've had the privilege to train. I'm just a little OCD :)
    It was a pleasure to serve, and I appreciate everyone's efforts.
