Along with the grill, emblems, light bezels, and lenses. A new vinyl top was installed by Auto Weave Upholstery, to complete the project.
Don's 1974 Javelin AMX
This is how the car looked on arrival. The car was hit from the rear at a stop light, pushing it into the car in front.
The damages were repaired, the drivetrain was rebuilt, and the front suspension was completely rebuilt and detailed. The color was also amped up with modern pearls, and the factory decals were duplicated in paint and buried under the clear coat.
The factory stripe on the hood had a fading strobe effect that required laying over 200 1/16 th inch stripes 5/32 th apart over a length of 48 inches. The silver was then fogged in and the hood was cleared. Then it was wet sanded with 800 grit, and the Wild Plum was added, then cleared again, and polished to a glass smooth surface.

1956 Dodge Royal Lancer 4 door hard top. Complete strip and repaint, stainless trim restoration and engine bay detail.
The engine was detailed in place. The fire wall was stripped and repainted due to a leaking master cylinder. The left fender splash had some rust under the battery mount, that was cut out and patch panels fabricated and welded in. The radiator support and both splashshields were media blasted and refinished with an industrial satin black.
The entire car was stripped to bare metal. All old body filler was removed, and the damage was metal finished.
This car has been in the same family's hands since new. The only rust I found in the car was under the battery, and in front of both rear wheels where the 1/4 overlaps the rocker. Patch panels were fabricated and welded in.
Right side 1/4 and rocker joint. The rocker was prepped and POR15 was applied before the new panel was installed.
The new patch was fabricated out of 16 gauge steel.
The only trim with significant damage was the stone shield on the passangers side. With a few hours of work.
I was able to ding out the damage, and metal finish the shield. With a little move time spent on the buffer the piece was able to be reused.

1969 AMX 5,300 Original mile car. The car was stored in the Michigan, Wisconsin area its entire life causing the drive train and suspension part to coat with rust. We performed a complete undercarrage and engine bay restoration. Photo below is a before view
After, engine was remover, the bay was taken down to bare metal, the engine and every parts was cleaned, and detailed. The same was done with every piece of the undercarrage.
The right fender apron had been sprayed with batter acid, when a battery was over charged at some point.
The entire engine bay was stripped to bare metal and any surface rust was treated. The bay was then etch primed and sealed.
The bay was painted was a custom matched single stage urethane finish.
This shows the damage done by the humidity and the fact AMC didn't put a whole lot of paint on the engines in the day.
The engine was stripped of the remaining paint and detailed with wire brushes, prepping it for new paint.
You can see, all the factory marking on the crank and rods are intact and bright. The cross hatch on the cylinder walls was perfect, showing this car was a true 5,000 mile surviver.
This shows the engine with all its accessories detailed before it was placed back in the car. A set of NOS valve covers were installed once it was in the car.

This car was built up from a carcass pulled from a barn with no motor or transmission. The current drive train is an injected 302 from a 1993 Thunderbird along with the AOD trans. The rear end is a Ford 9" from a Lincoln Versailles, and front brakes from a Granada giving the car 4 wheel disc brakes. The interior and top were upholstered by Auto Weave in Lakewood CO. The dash was customized with built in A/C registers, gauges and glove box door from a 1965 Mustang with carbon fiber inlay, and a custom fabricated carbon fiber heater control and top switch panel to finish off the dash. The body had all its molding holes welded closed, the door and trunk locks were shaved, and the bumpers were narrowed and pulled tight to the body, for a smoother appearance.
