Photos in the “Candy Baby Gets a Restoration” Album

Description: As nice as this classic was before, it is even better after a frame-on restoration was completed in April 2009. The previous 7 year old candy apple red brandywine paint was a little ragged and needed a refresh. The new update includes 4 coats of silver metal flake under coat plus 9 coats of PPG Wineberry & then 3 clear coats (sometimes referred to as the previous named candy paint). This time the paint actually gleams & looks "wet". Check out the progress.
