  1. I'd like to touch on something that I haven't seen mentioned yet, the welding on the chassis and body work as well as the bead rolled work and what I think is some wheeling machine work on the sheet metal looks phenomenal! I would bet that this thing will handle like it's on rails when it's finished.
  2. I'm sold! When do I make my first monthly payment? lol
  3. Found this on the cowl behind the antenna access panel and just thought I'd share. Thought it was cool that it lasted so long since it looks like China marker.

  9. This has been an issue for auto restorers on various makes and models and it's something you have a hard time adjusting to make right. Do you fix these issues? Or is it restoring back to better then factory the route you should take? For me, those fit and finish issues would bother me and I would do what I could to fix them. Technically though, if you're doing a true restoration those should be left just as it came from the factory.
  10. Thanks Ed I may just do that! I bought it and tore into it. I've got the engine apart for detailing, I'll be posting some pics just have to resize them to fit. I also ordered new seat covers and foam, headliner and carpet (it had felt like fabric for carpet). Also replacing the wood veneer trim and sprucing up the rest of the interior (it needed serious attention) Mark
