Man, you have been busy while I was away! Quality work as always.

And thanks for the tip about leaded seams....I never would have suspected.

The hood alignment was good except for the fit to the after market passenger side fender, which was a little too long at the forward inboard corner. The fender was cut at the leading edge, trimmed, re-arched, and welded back up.

The left front fender looked decent in epoxy but had plenty of dings from over the years...

I hope so! I have been very pleased with the sheetmetal work that has been done by Zach. He's the man!





May as well get some cool pictures in bare metal before it all comes apart for media blasting inside and in all the nooks/crannies.

This is going to sound a bit silly, but the car looks longer to me without it's trim, handles, and in polished metal.

I thought the same thing. The back sure does. Killer stance and wheel- tire combo without going overboard and looking cartoonish.

Yeah-I thought the same thing. I think it's mostly the lower stance??? THe funny thing is I bought the wheels and tires a few years ago since they were a good deal...but I didn't really like them. The longer they are on the car, the more I like them!

The exhaust was running pretty close to the rear frame rails, so the rear rails were narrowed next to the cylinder mufflers. The firewall welding was also finished up.
