Default Just call me Ed Jr.....

Spent several hours stripping the Lifeliner. Oh joy. The chrome molding on the roof slid off like butter. And, in one picture the doors are open on the passenger side with no doors on the drivers side, car sure grabs a lean.

I forgot to mention while attending the Flint PCs meet in 2009, Aaron Greene donated a set of orange door cards which are in much better shape than mine so going to use them. Thanks Aaron.

you too Richard? You guys really impress me with your ability. I have ten thumbs, in other words, I can't do anything, but I wish I could. Keep up the hard work and that ambulance will really be nice!

Richard, this is like the 10th time you've repainted the car in less than 2 years!

It looked fantastic, why are you doing it again?

Abe

Dont want to hijack Richards thread,but I have to ask Ed,

" What color red is on that BEAUTIFUL MM ???"

I realize that they are all going to look different on a screen,but I was just curious......

I have been kicking around a few different shades of red.....the 70 is scheduled to go for body/paint at the end of the month....and I need to narrow the colors down a bit.....

I really like the color on Bo Pounds's 70 Superior that was at Daytona.
I also am considering "Ferrari Red" , "Gaurds Red" (Porsche) and "Salsa Red"(VW color).....

Thank you !
