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.

A few more pics....the upper rear quarter panel STRIPE was too short on both sides. Had to re-order from the vendor.

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.

Hey Paul! Hope all is well. It is amazing how much time has gone bye since the start. I hope the final assembly phase goes quickely. It would be great to have it on the road in 2018. Fingers crossed!!
