Ok all the color sanding is done and hope to get it buffed Monday evening . Been busy putting some of the car together . Had a time lining the trunk lid up with the rear panel and the tail light covers so had to do some Okie engineering on it .
Started putting some of the interior together which went ok . Also got the door wether strip on the door and lower body trim on one side of the car .

Replaced some of the sound deadening which was falling apart over the years .

Put in the front bumper fillers which went in ok . Only problem is that the bumper is a good inch over to the right and there's no more adjustment so gonna have to live with it

I thought of that but everything looks straight enough . I'm not worried about it enough to take it all off and mess with it

Thanks .
Well it's all buffed and polished . Washed it at home and all that's left is to wax it . Found a couple spots that we missed with the buffer so will get those touched up later . Looks good in the sun but you can't really tell from this pic

Went back last night and touched up and places we missed while buffing . Also had a couple of tiny chips from where the hood and trunk close . Going to wash it again tonight then start waxing it . Then start putting everything back on the car .
 Still wont be done after that . I have a new windshield to put in , get the AC charged and working , paint the inner fenders and inside the trunk , take it to Firestone for a medical .

Another bad pic of the car in poor light

Ok I washed the car again before I waxed it . Must have sweated 20 lbs waxing it in the garage at almost 100f .turned out pretty good so started putting some more parts on it . Got the handles , locks , belt rails and mirror in the drivers door plus the rest of the trim on the left side . All the front of the car is complete now as you can see from the pic .

I was surprised to here you were waxing a fresh paint job. I was under the impression one needed to wait 30-60 days before applying any wax to a fresh paint job?

yes actually I am . The previous owner asked to see it when ever I got it restored . I started on it a month or so after buying it and I think he was surprised that I'd started it already when I stopped by and showed him pics of it in the paint shop . I'll wait till its all done then just show up . It had been in his family from day one apparently .
My avatar pic was taken when I was test driving it .
