We continue to paint Hoven’s 1969 Chevrolet Pickup. Gave this post a new title just to keep Google happy. This morning Glen put blue on the fenders and cowl. Not much narrative to put here but the pictures should speak for themselves. The color is a dark, dark blue.

Restoration of Hoven’s Classic Continues

The cab is done. Most of this day was spent fine sanding and applying primer. Lots and lots of sanding. We’re getting ready for the blue paint. This truck is looking good.

While going thru the pictures and videos related to this 1969 Chevrolet Pickup Restoration, I ran across these photos and decided to post them. These pics, I feel, should show and tell the difference between “restoration” and other work on a vehicle. Although this chevy pickup is not a frame-up restoration, Glen always take care of problems that are revealed while doing other work. Some of the corrections require a call to the owner for permission to get parts, add labor charges and so forth. Most customers agree that the work should be done now when it is exposed. There really is no need to let problems continue when they can be corrected for just a little cost and addition of a little labor.
