Found a few flaws to repair.. not looking to make it perfect, but waiting on paint to arrive, so figured why not. Hoping to paint it tomorrow or Tuesday at the latest.

I think I'm going to respray it to get it a little darker and I saw some flaws I'm not too happy with. I wanted it to be more like the shade my dads 69 rr was in the 70s and this one looks more candy apple green than it.

I have a 383 with domed pistons, .508 or so cam, 906 heads etc... nothing crazy but will do for now and 833 trans.

What a nice save from what it was. Have you rolled it out in the sun yet? That can change the look of the paint.

Looks even lighter in the sun... my shop has led lights and pics on a cheap old cell phone. So you can't really see the color it actually is in the pics. I already got more paint on the way, so in a few days I'll put a couple more coats on. Saw a few spots I want to fix also. At one time I woulda called it good enough, but plan to keep this one for a long time and want to make sure it's exactly how I want it now.

Yes: It's easy to find the flaws with the shiny paint and the new paint will cover well over the green already on there.

LED lights I installed show even more than the fluorescent lighting also... plan is fix the more noticeable stuff but not go crazy. It's just a driver/drag car, but some things I can't overlook.

All sanded again and fixing flaws today and respray by Friday. Going to install dash/column, rest of the glass, weatherstrip and get the eng/trans in, then will do the rest over winter. I got two other projects going on that need to be done come spring also.

Much happier with it now. Paints like a shade darker, but big thing is the coverage.
