'69 Statesman Restoration Complete
« on: November 05, 2022, 08:40:31 AM »
Finally finished with this Red Head.... It's been fun and this one ties with my other '69 - both the oldest in my collection.  Some of the pics here were posted on my gotcha day and wheel resto thread, but I wanted to put them all here to share in one place.  Thanks to all the tips and methods I've learned from this group I've got something to be proud of with this resto......

Excellent job! That's a lot of elbow grease to get all that shine. Looks very nice.

Wonderful job! What do you use on the vents for that shine?

Even with the HF kit, that still looks like a LOT of effort!
You should be proud, it's a beauty!
