I was wondering if you did the work yourself, or the body shop did the work?
Either way fresh paint makes sure makes it look brine new.

Nice work. Are you planning to put the emblems back on it or leave it de-badged?

Offhand, I don't know what I'd put back on the nose other than the original chrome oval emblem. NOS emblems would probably be your best bet. Besides, it would be almost impossible to get that oval emblem off of a donor car without breaking it. The rear ones would be easier to harvest, although it doesn't look bad the way it is. The only other thing I can think of is to have some custom vinyl decals made, perhaps to mimic something from the past like the "Super 88" fender badges on this '59 model:https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...A4nsrundan.jpg.
