Ron Dunn Finished paint


November 26, 2014, The Team at Steve’s Auto Restoration in Oregon have completely finished the paint work on the Valley Custom Shop-built Ron Dunn Ford. Next up is final assembly.

Over the last couple of weeks the Ron Dunn Ford has been painted, the paint left to rest for a while and then it was time for countless of hours of wet sanding. The Sierra Gold paint was carefully sanded to a perfect smooth surface before SAR employees Jay and Duke went ahead with the cut & buff stage to get the paint till absolute perfection. The body is not looking absolutely gorgeous with super paint and the team is very eager to get started on the final assembly. Goal is to have the car displayed at the 2015 Grand National Roadster Show which is held in Pomona California from January 23-35, 2015. As these photos show, there is still a LOT to do to get the car ready…
