Beautiful day for detailing

Work accomplished after 8 hours. I never work more than 4 hours at a time as it can become quite trying at times. I'm probably 30% done as what is left are the difficult areas to get to. I've not devised a way to detail these areas yet.

I used paint thinner and acetone to clean and detail the painted areas that had been untouched for 40 years. Please know that GREAT CARE is needed with acetone as it will eat right through the clear coat if left on the paint for 10 minutes or longer. I never leave it set for longer than 10 seconds and wax all the areas around for good measure to protect the paint.

This is going to be a involved process as I want to compete in the preservation class.
