The rear door panels finally came in! Now they have to be transferred over to the originals (metal backing and stainless strip at the top).

The windshield was ordered on Tuesday 5/23. Expected mid-next week, and hoping it's installed by the end of the week, then it's time for all the A pillar-header trim.

Once that's done, It's coming home with me, and I am taking it home. I will "nut and bolt" the car to ensure it's all properly torqued and safe underneath, and I have to reclock the torsion bars (I made a boo boo when putting the engine in, and when at ride height, the adjuster bolts stick out from the control arm and look stupid..). It's alignment time, and then I'll register the car, and DRIVE it to the upholstery shop to get the top done. After that, back to Richard's so we can put the rear interior in it.. And then she's DONE!!!

She was delivered to my workplace Monday morning this week. I just finished re-orienting the torsion bars (the adjuster bolts stuck out too far, my fault!). I just set the ride height and did a "nut and bolt" check under the car. It's running great. I am going to register it this Friday, and early next week I am taking it to the upholstery shop for the top to be installed.

After that, I drive it back to Richard's, where together, we will install the rear interior and passenger front seat, and she's done!

That is awesome, congratulations its been a long process, been following it for a while.

Are the wheels that are on it permanent? it seems with the mild custom treatment you gave it, I would have figured a modern type polished wheel and tire combo, not 20s but maybe 17"&18" five spokes or Magnum 500s

I look at those wheels like a modern interpretation love child of the keystone classic and magnum 500. Someone on FB had them on a green duster and they looked amazing!

Do you realize its been 7 yrs almost to the day from when you started this thread to this comment?

I remember you had a lot of personal issues that sidelined the project for awhile, great to see you were able to keep going and pull it all together!

That's crazy! This car has survived many "bumps in the road" in my life. It's been painted since December of 2006!

Looks great! And I agree 100% with the wheel option. What size wheels are you going with?
