1959 XK-150 DHC Restoration
Owner: Jim Dawkins
Down to the metal. Inside repainted.
I used only chemical (Aircraft) paint remover and plastic scrapers.
It's a Southern car, and had only a little rust down low on the doors.
Four coats of etching primer after many days of body prep.
Results after the 3rd sanding back to primer, 4 base coats & 4 clear coats.
My first attempt at car painting
The engine (& automatic tranny) are ready.
More progress (3/27/2001)
Polished out and running great. Next item will be the top.
