Pretty cool car you're putting together. You'll have a lot of fun hanging out with the guys who run the FAST class. Keep the photos coming.

Great work, I like that color. My '71 SSP is GA4, I like it!! Mine is ready for a repaint though, it's pretty faded.

So the cars practically together ..
I have a month to kill before my new kframe comes in.. I figured I d patch the rear quarters..

My painter came over and said he needed some fast cash .. He wants to straighten shoot the whole car .. So much for my survivor scheme ..

If the car wasnt as rugged, I woudla left it

So from last Sunday til today I prepped the car ..

It is friggin cold in the barn , but the cars going to get a new paintjob .

By the way Im gonna write a book on how to waste money while restoring a car .. or how to restore a car backwards .. or something of the sort ..

Im gonna be rich .. If you guys only knew what I went through before i gave in and agreed to let the car get painted ..

pinstriping , color matching , etc etc ..

By the way . you guys with winches got it made ..

Whielk I was letting my beer muscles relax .. I figured Id take a shot to let you know how good you have it with that Warn winch .

Strange thread - kinda hard to follow

So, you had the orange one, then bought the blue one and painted it grey? Which engine is going where?

Looks like they had enough paint left over to put a stripe on the wall. J/K, looks great!! I'll have to cruise up and check out your collection now that I'm off for the winter and extremely bored... as long as you and Quad don't haze me.
