Larry is preparing this 1963 Ford Thunderbird for body work for our client. In this stage of the vehicle’s build we are mechanically and chemically removing all of the old paint from the exterior of the vehicle and then we will etch prime and seal.
Our client is going to then probably take the vehicle back to take care of the body work himself.
Once the body work is done the vehicle will return to get painted.
