Last Friday, now being slightly mobile, I was able to get to the shop and visit 0327. Over the last month most of the metal pieces taken off the body have been painted. Doors are painted black, hood scoop, hood trim, etc. Next the doors will get the white paint, then the body will be painted.
I think once the body is painted things will move along much faster.

It was identified as Los Banos Area.

Default End of January Update

I visited 0327 last week. The body is being painted now. The black areas are mostly done; next is the white top, then the parts (doors, trunk, hood, etc. go back on). I am shooting for an end of February completion of the body and paint, then the interior will start.
Below are some photos. This guy likes to paint the body in sections. Seems odd to me, but it's the way he does it; he's the artist and I would never tell an artist they're holding the brush wrong...

My painter paints it all in pieces as well. Then bolts the panels back together.

Looking good Steve. My car was painted in that same sequence as well.

I'm happy to know this isn't an unusual process at all; thanks for the comments.
When we begin the journey of restoration, especially when it takes a long time, sometimes it's useful to take a look back and see what we started with. I've had to be patient with the progress, but I do believe it is being done right. Just as a comparison, here's a pic of what 0327's back end looked like when it was stripped down and what it looks like today.

Be sure and try to take as many photos as possible of the body work and paint process. They are vital documentation of the quality of your restoration and play an important part in establishing the value of your car.

Will do, thanks for the suggestion!

As of Jan 31, the white roof and sail panels are complete. Windshield and back window trim are installed. Next the doors will go back on, followed by the fenders.

The front end (that goes over the bumper bar and includes the grill) came out rough on first painting, so it was sanded down again and it will be repainted next week.
