She's DONE!

Finished painting my 73 this weekend. Went with a single stage Nason stock color with a couple coats clear. Came out NICE...after grueling wet sand, buff and polish of course.

My son has named it Daredevil...due to the color. It came out a hint lighter than Malaga, but I love it!

Thanks to all for great wisdom and help on this forum!

I tried to post 3 photos...if they don't appear, could someone counsel me?

Looks very nice.

There's a Japanese saying, "House done, life over." I suspect it applies to our cars too - they'll never be quite done...

I taped around glass. However, when I bought car 6 months ago, windshield was missing...I painted inner seal area and had a pro install new seal and glass...also caulked around top and sides of windshield seal...looked like water could infiltrate the seal. Probably should have waited till after paint, but then I could't drive car. I was trying to make a nice driver...not into super correct restorations or high point show cars..DRIVE IT!

I have a stand up Craftsman compressor... 4 feet high...I forget the volume, but it keeps up fine. I use a Devilbiss DRD Spray gun with in-line dessicant. Shot with Nason (Dupont) single stage (Burgundy Metallic) with 2 coats clear. This way, if I burn through clear on the wetsand/buff, I can just shoot a little more clear and you would never know! In the past I have burned through standard base/clear system, and you are screwed once you burn through clear.

what nerf bars are those and where did you find them? I've been looking to do the same thing to my car as i still have the slits for the bumper but my car no longer has provisions for a front bumper so i need to do something.

Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again, but life goes on

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
