Been awhile since I updated things... Operation Superbird is now speeding up... Done with the blasters and seal.. Down going backwards ( forwards in terms of project management ) with the installation of new panels.

Here we have the attachment of the wing washers on each quarter.. No drama here

Got some updated photos from the rear window corner repair... I was able to acquire original upper quarter panel sections in the area that meets the Dutchman/filler panel. As you can see, the original metal had heavy corrosion due to a rat next on an unpainted surface. For a refresher, the section of the upper quarters and Dutchman/filler panel never got paint on them from the factory since the car was painted after the rear plug was installed. Kuddos to Smitty.

Been awhile since I posted on the Bird, but the new AMD roof skin came in today. Buddy Smith, aka Smitty, didn't waste any time in jumping on the mating of the skin with its new car, my Superbird. Progress !!!

Operation Superbird:
Smitty is really into it now.. Working hard on the Bird, finalizing roof attachment, dent pulling and generally pushing forward... He also gets to work on a cool E-body...
