Last month, as you may recall, we talked our friend, John Fleming of Boulder City, Nevada, down from having us bodywork and refinish his cherry, original 1957 Chevy 210 two-door sedan—in Resale Red acrylic urethane. The reasoning behind our reasoning is that a car is only original once, and this old car's original lacquer finish has an honest weathered appeal worth preserving.

With bodywork and rust repair chores now behind us, we're back in the booth for the application of hard-to-find PPG Duracryl acrylic lacquer topcoats. The roof panel will be refinished in its entirety, while the silver on the sides will be blended and distressed to match the car's existing finish; and we'll get to use some old tech tools and materials that don't ordinarily come into play.
