    Yes, if I can find some "targets". Last time I was there I went to a yard in Harlingen. There was an 80's Coupe Deville with the equalizer radio there, nothing else noteworthy.

          Took the car down to bare metal, painted with epoxy primer and then a sealer. Used a shop line PPG paint in the factory color with a clear coat. My son shot the primer, paint, and clear.

          Thanks Andy for all the parts. Now I am thinking about a VR trunk spoiler.

            These pictures were taken before I installed the black wheel well trim. All parts are now on! Enjoy the photos.

              Wonderful job sir, wonderful job! If you can't locate a VR spoiler, a common '82-'92 Firebird spoiler also looks swell.

                  I know we went back and forth about this a while ago, but I still have that VR spoiler.

                    Wow that looks like a new car with the crisp, black dew strips and the shiny paint. Very nice job!

                      Thanks! It was a lot of work, but worth it.

                      Daniel, glad to know you still have the spoiler. I'll think about that option again.

                        I forgot to mention before, I really like the gloss black paint on the window frames. It really sets off the new paint!

                          It's even better in person.

                            Beautiful, beautiful car. Awesome job on that one.

                              Thanks so much for the compliments. I will say the black around the window frames is definitely not a stock color. It has a tinge of blue in it. I think it compliments the silver very well. It will be a while before I put emblems on it. I still need to buff it out. For now, I am partial to the "clean" look without emblems on the car.
