The original model was in remarkably good condition but it needed to be redone. The original driver's door was replaced but used to match the paint. Note the excavated original bodywork.
With fresh bodywork and a coat of primer, the great decades-old design emerges again!
A silver lacquer finish was applied over which a dark blue candy center stripe was applied. Rick remarked to me that he had to really open up the gun to replicate the less delicate
early Sixties style of painting.
The beautiful candy Brandywine lacquer finish was then applied over the fogged base color. Note that all the parts were painted separate from the body. Rick is a master painter.
With a handful of fresh and replated parts, the winning design appears again. What a vision of the past!
