    Wonderful restoration. Wish my paint jobs came out so nice...

    Beautiful! I love the swallow(?) decal(?) and the finish work. Did you spray your paint?

    The swallow and the pinstripe are painted. They aren't perfect but the look ok from 4 feet away and if you squint a little. I rolled and tipped with Kirby's Ivory and Flag Blue semi-gloss. I thinned it with 9 parts paint to one thiner. Then I just kept the coats as thin as I could. Have a few sags here and there. but I've been able to polish most of that out.
