Here are the restoration pictures. There is a lot of them, so hang in there [that's why i've put them into two parts. - This first picture is a before shot of the side of the car.

More work being done. You begin to see the original gold under the crappy primer job.

last pic of part one. This is where it really starts picking up steam in the restoration. That is some crazy bare metal you're looking at. - Chad
