CLICK-> 65 GTO Resto [an error occurred while processing this directive] Craig loads his 1965 GTO Project on a trailer. Craig explains, "With my recent back surgery, log home under construction, and Parkinson's Disease worsening with time; I finally had to acknowledge that I wasn't going to be the one to finish the restoration of my 4th 1965 GTO and 9th GTO overall. After much research, referrals, and deliberation; I have entrusted the completion of the body paint and assembly to Dave Coy. He is the owner of Coy's Autobody in Muncie. Pat at Nye's Automotive will do the remaining mechanical work. I have been told I (or some trusted soul with a steadier right hand!) should be able to drive the car before the snow flies!"
CLICK-> 65 GTO Resto [an error occurred while processing this directive] And so the 1965 GTO starts its long drive down Craig's twisty driveway. It is headed toward the body shop.
CLICK-> 64 GTO Resto [an error occurred while processing this directive] Fender is painted Sonic Turquoise. Craig explains, "Here are pics of the paintwork being finished this week at Coy's Body Shop in Muncie. The pics don't do the work justice - it looks two feet deep! They laid down three coats of PPG color over the white primer followed by 3 coats of clear. Wet sanding then progressed from 1,000 to 2,000 grit, capped by a final wet sand with 3,000 grit sandpaper and a fine finish polish! The results are a show-quality finish."
