Greetings,,
I'd like to see thread with shot of interiors & paint to get an idea of restoring 78 S&S recently acquired (http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showpost.php?p=757444&postcount=1).

So far green is not my favorite, unless it's a Supra Sports Car, trimmed out in gold pin striping.

The lettering, along with green metal flake for sure will be removed.
Commercial art skills of font styles back then will be upgraded.

Looking at new ones, someone knows what their doing.

Just missed deal on new engine done by speed shop for under $2k.
Waiting for reply to see it, I get sold for response.

Getting the tag codes deciphered on this guy has been a job.
None of the links here came close.
They are a digit off.

http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=38619Wow, that was Amazing Make Overs.
First off, the blue one, then added detail of stars to a Blue trailer, that just rocks.

If I'm seeing this right, did one of the blue ones transform into a Yellow one?

Not only very nice street rod yellow upgrade, but I bet the interior is perfection with the best of hardware.

I hope I can pull this off at 1/2 that class, with much to learn.

The one of many mind blowing restoration favorite under this belt was months spent on crashed gear-up landing of -1943 Beach StaggerWing, then do a barrel roll at 3G's after it was finished.
That left a Mark before I climbed in.

I think the hardest part will be choosing the right products, being chemistry & names of have probably changed over the years.
I'm a epoxy primer,,, topped in Imron in mid eighties kind of guy.
Pretty much of the process is deadly.

I have dabbled in sewing industrial nonsense, plus creating all new seating for a past ski boat from the shell up.
So I may push the cushions much thicker / form fitting so the camera guy can stay onboard this time.


Thanks Very Much to sharing these views.

JTRYes Sir, Some of my Hard Drive already has a view or two on file. Very Nice.

The one thing that hits it for me right off is the windshield design. Man, I might need therapy.

I may have noted I'm not a green sports fan, then later down the road, she sets up my favorite beer, and that green bottle really looks good.

I need to explore the other links yet you included.
Thanks Again.
