Had to order a new trunk pan, and delivering some more cash today. Most recent work has been repairing the cowl area where decades of water leaks took a toll at the vent intake.

If this wasn't my "back in the day" car, I would be sick, with all the surprises. These guys let me know what is needed, and If I am good with it, it gets done.

I am just thankful I have a couple of guys who haven't asked me to take it away.

Couple more pics of the trunk are. Going to the Indy swap meet and picking up the majority of the things I need to finish.

I am really thinking abouth putting a shaker hood on it. I may decide when I get to the show. If a vendor has one, i may pull the triggger

Indy was successful. I ran into a neaby Mopar acquaintance at he event. I said my decision on going with a shaker would depend on if i found a hood. He gave me a 70 flat hood with a hole cut out. He bought it cheap for a wall hanger.

I delivered it today to the builder. Now the investment will be in the bracing kit and ring.
Hopefully one of the shaker vendors will have a discount at some point, to minimize the cost.

Doing some smoothing out of the body now. I also gave another cash infusion. The builder said that should get them through to the end.

Still spending on my end for interior and odds and ends.

work this week. Had to order a new hood; which is on back order.

They are looking at July as the completion month. I may have it ready for Mopar Nats, but as many of you know, once it its painted and running, there are all kind of little things that need done.
