Thank you for the warm welcome! The car does look very good in the pictures, but when you get closer there are quite a few imperfections in the paint and some wavy areas (right quarter). Some of the imperfections look like the sanding and polishing may have been rushed or not completed. I did find a fairly recent receipt for blue lacquer paint. I plan on doing a little research on color sanding and polishing to see if this can help the finish out and make it last a bit longer. In the mean time I will get her running properly and drive & enjoy!
