“I wish someone will buy it and care for it a bit longer.”

Never fear, that is happening, though the patina is slowly vanishing.

Nice, while restoring things isn’t financially efficient, it is a whole lot of fun.

Painting is the best part.

Shinier indeed. Has it been wet sanded and buffed out?

Not yet, this is as-sprayed last weekend.

Once I have the entire car painted the final finish work will begin. My garage is only barely bigger than the Volvo so spraying more than a couple of panels at a time isn’t feasible. :slight_smile:

From an ad to a restoration, this thread is great.

Keep them coming.

New photos!

Trunk lid, the vertical back and the front valence are all that is left.
