Tail panel work is also in progress. Original lower valence is being repaired and will be re-used. Tail panel will require a few patches but is overall pretty decent. We decided today to order new lower valance end caps as the originals were going to need too much repair. There will also need to be a few patch panels made for the bumper reinforcement mounting area.

For those wondering the entire car will be plastic media blasted after the sheet metal repair has been completed. They are spot sand blasting where required to make the sheet metal repairs. I am fairly confident this will be a good decision.

Doors, fenders, hood and some other items have already been delivered to the media blaster. It is nice to finally see some momentum. I hope we can keep it going.

Been awhile since I last posted. Been making some progress on console restoration and some of the interior trim items. Also about ready to start on the exterior trim polishing and restoration. I will post some more photos soon.

V-code, Lime Light, and 4spd, I'm not sure if it can really get better! Keep the good work coming!

Body work is going slower than I had hoped. The front clip is down to bare metal and the parts look awesome. No rust repair required on the fenders or hood. A few dings to repair but nothing of any significance. Photo #1.

Left front fender...the plan has changed to have the body shell completely plastic media blasted before any more new sheet metal goes on. Should be going out to the media blaster soon.

Body work is pretty much at a stand still at the moment. But thought I would post a few photos of some of the parts I have aquired and been working on. Hope to have some progress on the body work in the near future.

My new six pack carb set!

Dash speakers freshly restored. AM 8 track is out for restoration with Big $ Lewis. I should have it back in a month or so. I am having a hidden IPOD jack added but the radio will be stock specs otherwise.

More console parts prior to restoration!

Hope to be back soon with more updates on the progress. Looks like my orginal goal to have her on the road in 2012 is slipping.
