Holy moses! Bad 80's paint indeed!

Great save and she's looking better already!

Yeah, US auto makers really dropped the ball with paint in the late 80s. I hope to have it looking good by the nationals. Thanks for all the encouragement guys! Really motivates me to keep at it!

I don't know, I kinda like the... how do the rat rodders say it, "natural patina"... I think you have actually lowered the value of the van.














I'm kidding you of course. That is a lot of work just on that nose. You got a whole lot of van left but I predict that by GSVR she'll be top notch. Good work. It is always nice to see progress.
