Russ Carlson's paint job, on wheels in the sun!

Visited with Russ Carlson this weekend. He was kind enough to invite me down to look over his hangar queens for small parts and stuff for my '86 TC. I got to admire his shop (makes my 2 car garage look like an closet) and drool over his paint job. I took some pics for him to post here. The car is inside his "shed" <grin> on blocks still so the light wasn't the best and the flash on my camera is a little small for something this size. The paint hasn't received the final wet sand so it will look even beter.

I would add a few more but I'm at my limit right now.

Pete,
I'm still getting educated on how to use this site. I've corrected it, but you're certainly right, the first ones weren't Russ's. You were too quick for my editing. I'll post a few more at a later time. I have one of the rear in which the flash makes the tail lights look like they're lite up.
Thanks

Russ, Yes I looked at the pics. That is going to look awsome when it's sanded and rubbed out. Nice work!

Here's a few more with a great rear end shot. In the first pic that's Russ with his head cut off at the front talking with my wife. She currently drives the '86 as a daily driver.
