Betty wk 4?

We finally parted out the red '66.  
Took some to the crusher and the rest in the back for the boys to play in. 

Moved Betty under the carport to take out her engine.
Haven't been able to do too much to her other than work on her 'look'. 
I didn't like the white paint. 

Hubs started sanding on her in spots last Sat.(Labor Day wkend)-
He showed me how to do it and I went to town! 

8 days later (technically 7, b/c I didn't touch her yesterday).
Stripped her (by hand).
Wet sanded her (still have 1/2 the deck lid to do).
This is how she looks today!
*spent a good 5 hours stripping and sanding, today alone*

She is looking good!
We are still trying to decide on the '2 tone' look we want.
As Is (painting the white eventually).
Stripping her doors and leaving the fenders 'white'. 
Strip her completely?

We don't have to decide today.
She doesn't look like a 'project' the way she looks now, IMO.

A little at a time.

***we also put in her pop-outs today!***
