itsonlyairandfuel - It's not finished yet ; it's looking great so far, quality build so should look spectacular when finished :

Looking good. One question. When it’s time for the first test drive, can I drive it first? Just trying to keep the tradition on this car of me going first.

Put away for the evening. I did remove the battery tray. It appears to be the only real rust in the car and need to be replaced. Fortunately, the body mount under it is fine and the frame is fine.


Safely away for the evening. Tomorrow it is supposed to be only in the upper 40ís and rainy. I need two hours to give the engine bay and chassis a good cleaning.

Then back in the garage to replace body mounts and paint the rest of the chassis.

Mark, found this pic going through one of my old threads about mini-lite wheels. Thought it might provide some additional direction, either good or bad as you continue to hash out the final shape/integration of your flares.

Jeff also has that spoiler for sale. Personally I think they look better on a car without bumpers.

I painted a bullseye on the number one offender right there in the center of that picture.

Not much, actually any work was done today given it was cold and rainy here. Tomorrow it will hit 60 after lunch and be sunny, so it will be power washing time, but I will not be connecting it to the hot water heater. That was a painful lesson learned already.

I did pick up some more powder coated parts. My air cleaner and rocker moldings. Of course I now realize I may need to trim the moldings, but that is the hazard of trying to plan too far ahead.
