The factory paint was high gloss so that's what I would stick with.

I don't see any holes for the quarter panel hash marks or the door scripts. Are you going to leave it that way.

Cool

Brandon thanks very much for the pixs especially with the 60 in this position. You are correct we don't often see our birds in this stage other than at a restoration shop and even then only by the owner and the staff at the shop Good stuff and keep the pixs coming when she is done.

well its at a restorations shop and i plan to share as many pictures as i can with all of you. if you need work done we happen to take on just about anything. motorcycle restorations we have done a huge variety of cars we just finished a 1 of akind 1967 mustang gt500 Eleanor we also have done some resto mods like a 1970 monte carlo on a 1995 Impala ss LT1 frame and motor swap the next 1 we are working on is a same idea of a 1970 chevelle with a new frame suspension and a new fuel injected motor.

if you have any questions ask away i am always around thanks again brandon

I answered by saying, these cars are 50+ years-old and spread out all over the world. Not many cars make it past 30-yrs here in the Rust Belt. Yes, many Squarebirds have been resurrected with a total restoration using a rotisserie. I should have invited him to view Keith's posts.

Brandon is 24 and has been restoring for 5-6 years. He works in a shop of seven guys. They have one main customer who owns the convertible that Brandon is currently working on.

So... let Brandon know if your car was on a rotisserie.
We commonly see ads for Squarebirds that underwent "frame-off" restorations even though Squarebirds don't have frames. - Dave

As a side note: Brandon, we are curious to see the bottom areas of the rocker channel. Can you post pictures? Our rust problems are most extensive along the channel that stretches from the bottom of the fender and along the bottom of the doors.
