Dad bought this from a hail damage sale, it was already repaired and painted. And I think Earl Schiebe could have done a better job at it.

Well they were over for a visit this weekend, and I thought I would spend a couple of hours playing with my new #66 and hopefully help the finish. But I had to clean off about 2 years worth of dirt first.

Wash and clay,
#66 with a rotary.
1 coat of NXT.

The rims took three scrubbing's to get clean.

And while I didn't see Dad take a picture of the roof before I started on it, I took one of the hood with almost the same reflection.

And the after was about 10 times better than before.

I didn't get any more pics worth sharing, believe me when I say that orange peel is smoother than this paint. And most of the hail damage is still visible.

So I see Rick got you hooked on 66 too. It sure is a great product for single step use. Car looks good, bet you had fun doing those wheels.

Thanks for the compliments everyone, I am glad to report they made it home safely, but Mom said she thinks Dad was actually aiming for the bugs on the interstate. I told them to give it a quick wash, and let me know how the shine holds up.
