"Tweety Bird" Revealed!!
Here are a few pix of what Rose looks like now. I will get the rest, including the prep pix, up on my web page as soon as I can this afternoon. Joe called and woke me up to come see her. I think she looks beautiful. If I have this correct, there are 8 coats of paint on her, then 2 coats of pearlescent and then 3 or 4 coats of clear. I lost count. They wanted to put another coat of pearlescent on her, but they were afraid that it would darken the color to much. As it is, the second coat of pearl did darken it some. Joe told me that each additional coat of pearl does darken the base color more. But I think she really looks great! I was thinking of having them paint a yellow band up the sides of the top and across the front, Watson style, but changed my mind. Instead, I asked them to highlight the top by painting the windshield wiper and back window areas white and joint them together with a white stripe. Then I asked Joe to put some white "tail feathers" on her. So he painted the tail fins white! They will let the paint set for a few days to get a good drying effect on it, then start the after paint process. Here are some pix.
