Default My '36 is in color !

Finally, after 8-years of chassis & body work and 3 major operations, my '36 3w is in color (Washington Blue). Still needs wet sanding & buffing and a a long way to go for assembly, but at least I see a bit of light at the end on the tunnel.
Just thought I'd share a few pics...........

Looks beautiful, please share the type of paint you used and the formula? I hope to paint mine WB sometime in the near future.

Great job! And it looks fantastic!
I’ll keep following this closely as I plan to paint my 35 3W the same color. Dearborn blue was standard, but Washington blue was optional.. and mine was one of those blues to start out.
