Yeah, looking forward to seeing it with fresh paint. The guy doing the paint did my friend's 61 Starliner. Awesome job.

The trim tag on this car says XXX which is Sahara Tan. I have the original dealer sales invoice and it says Color Sweep in the listed options. Not really sure what happened there. I think it was delivered as an all Sahara Tan car. The respray done in the 90's added brown to the sweep and the roof. So all that being said...

I'm going to repaint the roof and body Sahara Tan and then giving it a Mandarin Rust sweep. I like how those colors look together.

Ok, I know it doesn't really matter but it's got me curious on how this car was painted. I pulled off the ugly aftermarket rocker stainless which I never liked anyway. It's staying off by the way. And the dogleg makes it pretty obvious this car got it's color sweep later. How much later who knows. The dealer invoice clearly states color sweep. The sweep color is definitely not factory. And they painted the roof weird too. Ah well mystery lost in time.

Very nice way of lying out all the parts if you have the room. Car will be great, as you're doing good work!
