      Thanks Hemi67, First buy fridge for the garage. We are building the car to drive and enjoy. We have 12 months of cruise weather here. The A/C is going in along with power disc brakes and fuel injection soon. The body has been shaved. The color of choice right now is Black. Hope to be finished by Dec. 1. We'll miss the Good Guys in Nov but it will definitely be done for the Good Guys spring show. More Pics to follow.

          Nice. I do not have the patience for bodywork. Looks very good. You will sure need the A/C with black paint down there!

                    So, you replaced the 1/4s? And how heavy is the Dynamat?

                        The original 1/4's were really hacked up. They put the partial 1/4's you get from JC Whitney on and covered up the poor welding with about an inch of bondo. Since I want to paint it black it had to be fixed right. Yeah, I liked the black primer finish myself. However, the lady helping me pay for the restoration voted otherwise. I lost.

                        Hey Cranky, I see you remember the pictures from last year that I sent. Replacing the 1/4's was a nobrainer, finding the 1/4's was a life changing experience. The Dynamat is maybe an 1/8th inch. I just put 1 layer, still have to do the trunk. It does make a difference.

                          Looks like it's going to be a nice car when you finish it. What size are you running?

                              Looks good, must be close to ready for paint by the looks of the pictures.
