Some more progress. Panels have been fitted, body lines being finalized and final block sanding in progress. Will be disassembled soon to start putting color on the engine compartment, inside areas and then finally the exterior panels.

You mean you had to reorder the entire quarter panel? Or do you mean the quarter extensions?

Looks awesome. I love a Lime light Green anything. The H.I. colors of the 70's rule.

Been awhile since I posted. Progress is slow but still moving forward. Here a couple photos. Hope to have fuel system installed later this week and then the rear axle and suspension shortly thereafter.

Some more progress......all under-hood stuff is installed. Brake system, fuel system, Dana 60 and most all of the rear end of the car is completed. Hope to have it rolling on rear wheels by Saturday. Going to get the engine dyno'd in a few weeks and then hope to install the engine and front suspension shortly thereafter. Slow and steady!!!
