I only have before pics on my fire red's, but the metallics were in worse shape.
Very nice job. Clean up and paint look good on both of them. Creases on those fire red 5's are stubborn, I would know. Are you going to speckle the flame on the mettalic's?
Na i decided to just do straight silver for a cleaner look. I already put a few finishing coats on as well. This was my first restoration project I am pretty proud of my work as it was very time consuming and tedious applying the tape.
The toe box creasing in the fire reds as you mentioned is brutal and to avoid chipping the paint as they have been creased for 6 years i did what i could and let them be. I was surprised how ironing out the metallic s went over better
