Wink Rosie oh Rosie!

Hi Everyone! this is just an update on the progress of the old girl. We have detailed and bleached every nook and cranny of about half of Her so far. The front end cap was repaired and painted an aqua color. A third of the interior has been primed and painted a light yellow, since there is so much yellow in there anyway. All the parts we removed are either being soaked in the bath (our airstream spa) or laying in the dining room. I am in the process of putting a "crackle" finish on the little cubbies with the tambor doors, this requires many coats of paint. Metallic gold will be peeking through the cracks, if all goes well. We are having a great time fixing Rosie up and We are totally obsessed with Her. Hey what do you all think of spinning hubcaps?

Dawn and Rosie
