Yahoo's '61 Oldsmobile "Dynamic 88", Restoration.

1961 Oldsmobile, sanding.

If you've ever been staggered when you heard what someone spent for a "show quality" paint job, here is where most of that money was spent. The paint itself and its application is only a small part of the cost. Its the hours and hours of blocking and sanding to achieve the glass smooth finish on which to spray the paint. Later, the paint itself get a liberal application of elbow grease during the color-sanding phase. The goal is a finish that reflect light with the smooth depth of a mirror.

No detail is too small. Care is taken to make sure that filler does not mute or "round-off" the lines of the metal itself. Fine edges on the door are detail sanded with care.

Every bit of the car, not just the paint job, will get a makeover.
