Done some buffing on the fox

So I picked up this fox project a few months ago and have been working on it here and there. I decide I would try to high speed buff it and see how much of the paint I could save as the car is very original and low miles. I worked on it for a couple of days and took my time and that buffer will wear you out but I'm very happy with the results Click image for larger version

I see what might be a white interior and your avatar has a white top. 7-Up car?

It actually is not a 7up car but it is emerald green with white top and with leather. What I think is interesting about this car is it originally came black. It was painted green very early in life somewhere around 95. Waiting on the marti report to get here because I'm not sure if I have ever seen one black with white top and white interior. As much as I like the green I think the black and white combination would look great
