Why not paint/detail the engine too?

to much time leave that for the new owner if they so desire 

just my opinion james puts to much time into body and paint to make the engine look good too

That's true, it does take forever to do a car the way he does - it yields the best results though.

Tried a few different sanding / grinding techniques on the roof and decided to strip it.

We continue to strip her good

 

Learned something about stripping in cool weather, it eat in to everything more aggressive without drying out if your patient. i would put some stripper on and walk away for 2 hours come back and old bondo would literally fall off the car.

the rust is minimal, some under the grey paint. Yep they painted the car primer color. Not because of stripper
