Default painting my buddy'* gto (pic of 428 eng added)

just getting started on the stripping process on my buddy'* 69 gto. ill be doing all the body and paint work. i think he wants to go with orbit orange and put judge stripes on it to make it look like a judge. stripping off 2 crappy silver paint jobs. you can see the original blue paint coming thru. got a long way to go. i will finally get to paint a car in a paint booth ! his wifes work has a nice downdraft booth.

Reminds me of a lady at work...She has a 68 Bonneville convertible with a 428 that runs a 14.1

I'm sure the GTO will be faster though

Thats a really nice look, I think you should keep it that way

Looks like a good time there. Hopefully everything will come out perfectly.
