I just finished this one today! My best yet. (at least I think so) This is from the early 1800’s as a result all the body panels were split in numerous places. I filled the the cracks with thin wood slices and then coverd with a 2 part epoxy used for wooden boats. Lots of sanding!!!!! I masked off The stripes and stenciled the emblem and spray painted them an almond color. I think the almond is a nice compliment over the dark green.
Onto the next one Monday morning!

Absolutely gorgeous, My father and Step Mother have horses and have taken us for sleigh rides. I really appreciate the detail, and the sturdiness of a project like this.
Thanks for sharing.

That is a great job of restoration. You do excellent work.
