We have been diligently working away on this car for the last year but all the while I have been waiting for the day that my son would take it away to bring out the best in the paint. Brandon has some amazing skills when it comes to paint restoration

No sooner we had it in his shop he set up a test patch to try a couple products to see which ones were the best choice for my 57 year old paint. I am giddy with excitement: I have been waiting a year for this to happen!

We visited his shop part way through the process. Here he was all done polishing but needed to take a day off as his shoulder was bothering him: so it was not waxed yet – but it sure looks like it!

One week later and over 20 hours of work in his spare time we picked her up to bring her home. Our eldest grandson Bronson steered it up onto the trailer (under winch power) and his younger brother Leyton coached from behind. They had also helped daddy with the car: both having a turn with the polisher (with dad’s guiding hands), loved removing the tape on the trim and helped polish off wax.
