One more new job just came in. Interior and paint restoration on a 1931 Ford Roadster.
The body has been removed from the frame for the Roadster and we are working on grinding off all the old paint from the body. There was quite a bit of body filler under the paint when it came in so we will remove all that before making our repairs, priming and painting.
This is hopefully a classic car restoration that is soon to come!
