Sep 8, 2015 update to the Tornado Typhoon project car

It’s All About the Details

Not even the tread of our tires could have overspray on them when Tim McNair details a car.
Here Tim gets rid of our tacky tie wraps and replaces them with period correct pieces to attach the wiring harness.
Every inch, even underneath gets the GP Concours detailing touch. What most of us consider mind numbing, Tim McNair revels in.
Tim finishes the newly buffed car with Griots Garage Carnuba paste wax.

With the Amelia show just three days away, and little or no gas left in our tank, we brought in the best in the business to detail our Tornado Typhoon for the big show. Tim McNair of Grand Prix Concours has established himself as the detailer to call if you want your car to look its best in national concours competition.

We’ll have the full story on how to detail your project can in an upcoming issue of Classic Motorsports. Click here and get your subscription so you don’t miss the story.

Tim started under the hood where he not only cleaned, but rearranged wiring and even attached the harness, with more period correct fasteners. Even the catch tank cover with the modern Moroso logo got changed to take this car back to the late fifties.

Outside, he buffed and waxed the new paint to a mirror shine. From there more details—like removing the logo off the new radiator and even changing the front turn signal lights from amber to white to be less intrusive—were massaged as part of the work under the watchful eye of Tim McNair.
