    I have owned a ‘70 383 RR and now am working on a ‘70 440+6. It is a 4 speed and FC7 paint. I have owned it for well over 10 years and slowly doing a total resto. It didn’t have rust from road salt, but rather sitting in an open field. I have all of the body work done and it is painted. Just need to put it back together! Looking forward to expanding my knowledge on these cars!

    Ask and ye shall receive. The first pic is literally day one. Yep, big project ahead! Second pic is roughly where I am today. I have a lot of wet sanding and polishing to do. Third is what the underside looks like. Tried to keep it as factory as I know how.

    Thanks for all the encouraging words! I have a friend from high school and we are doing this project. It is about journey as much as it is about the destination. I suspect, once the body is polished and ready to go, the rest won’t be so bad. I will be leaning on this site for sure getting to the finish line!

    The grey color is actually a PPG epoxy primer blend of black and grey/green. Then we oversprayed the purple. But the secret is the clear we shot on top of that. It is a newish preflattened clear from PPG. Already has the correct gloss and no mixing in the very difficult flatttener additive. It is the same clear they use for the Mercedes AMG cars with matte paint. The matte clear coat makes it all super easy to clean in the future.
