  6. Washed off Engine Bay, Under-Hood, Under-Carriage, as well as washed the entire Car twice. Got it in the Garage now out of the rain and pollen. I took the Full Size Deluxe Wheel Covers off and I ordered some Thin Trim Rings for the 14" Factory Steel Wheels as well as I have some Factory Take-Off 1963 Oldsmobile Poverty / Dog Dish Hub Caps coming for it as well.

    Looks great! Couldn't really tell it had a painted roof in the first pic, and I like it even more now. Everything you hoped for?

    Looking great, Pat! Digging the poverty caps and rings a lot, little things make a huge difference.
