    I do plan to keep the fresh air hood and red with white. Trying to convince the wife to let me modtop the car. And hemi the car. Money is the holdup! Last year wife's health stopped even the rr. RR is now nearly done, even tho I didn't get any coating done! Just needs fuel lines and a few more parts.

    Cleaning and organizing don't cost nuttin' last I checked. Does nothing but good and only gonna benefit you once you do have the means and fire to kick that pig. I only jab at ya because we're all afflicted with the same butt-draggery when it comes to projects, myself no exceptions. Life's what happens while you are busy making other plans, so Mr Lennon said.

    Now.... back on topic and no more hijacking this thread from me.

    Hemibee.... are you going to stay with the same red/black combo on this car? Hood options or thoughts? ( I noticed the different hoods from first pic). Just curious what the wish list entailed Vs the thought process on factual abilities.

    Well, I pretty much quit posting in that 'saga' thread since nothing was getting done in the past several months but someone keeps digging it back up from the depths of hell and throwing it in my face. I have worked on a lot of cars over the last 15 years but at least they brought money in instead of me spending....and the downturn in the economy body slammed me pretty hard and I'm just now getting back to where I left off....but does getting back to where ya once was really happen?

    Glenn didn't start a progress thread and then not show pictures of any progress. You know I like pictures because I can't read. :P


    DJ.... I find I work better on other people's cars for some reason. Let's just swap cars and meet back in a year to find out what the other did, lol. Hell, you can't do any worse than a brown Volare stick car with a slant six 1 bbl. ANYTHING would be better. Moulin Rouge with orange interior would at least be some sort of different. I'm starting to not care and wonder if anything will ever happen with that dumb car.

    There was a 70 super bee locally (383 4 speed purple) back in the early 80's little old lady (then!) owned.

    She stopped driving it and put it away for restoration at a later date.

    Last week i saw it at a shop ,stopped and sure enough it was the same bee.

    but in a "gone condition" shop was parting it out for a charger project.

    It was fiberglassed repaired back in the early days of it's life and the rust went under the glass and beyond.

    When i saw her son at a swap meet he asked me if i was the guy with the purple challenger!

    stopped driving that car in 1983 i think.

    The wife was shocked that someone remembered what i drove back then!

    Mopar car guys just don't forget,can't buy from them but they don't forget.

    I have to say that the Bee is parked in storage for now. I will move it back to work stall when I get the road runner out of the way and running. That I hope will be very soon!

    Thats the problem is when to stop. You are just going to sell it maybe see if anyone is interested in it now. If you make it to nice you wont want to sell it, or have more money into it then you can get out of it. That is my problem, i was looking at the Runner and thinking the chrome wasnt really nice on the bumpers, so i get glass ones, then i see the turnsignal boxes didnt look the best so take them apart,prime and paint. LOL!!! It just never ends Glenn!!! Let us know what you decide to do.

    My headliner was all there but the stitching was dry and before long, it was hanging so out it came and same for the floor mats. The car came with all rubber mat and it was dry and cracking so it came out too. Drove the car like that for many years before I tore it all down.

    Well I have to tell. I have moved the bee asside once again. I have to do some repair work on another car so that I can try to reduce the project that I have here. I want to sell the 59 coronet so we have that money to put into the bee. The 59 need a lot of work to get it ready. Both rocker panels are rusted and were repaired with galvanized tin and bondo. Part of the floor is gone and the trunk pan needs to be repaired.
    Just painted the last of this project yesterday. Now nothing else looks right with the new paint So how much more do you do? The headliner is really in poor condition, don't touch it or you have a hole, The carpet of course is bad because of the rusted out floor under it? Door panels etc where do you stop?
