Rod I know what you mean, the exhaust pipe does have a Dr Pepper patch on it.

Also the dude that put the slice down the center of the clip also cut the metal riveted support. Nice!

It was CUT? Well he is an idiot. I expect his stupidity affected the price in your favor...

I don't understand that one, unless whatever he used to cut got away from him.

Hi Craig, this car is in really nice shape for the most part. The front nose area will be the challenge. I do love the color. Hopefully your project is moving a long. Looks great so far.

That's going to be very exciting for you Craig and a little stressful putting things back without affecting the beautiful paint work. I know it was for me..I know that you will do just fine. A very rewarding process watching things come together.

I have a fresh start on this project so as I removed things along with the tag and bag procedure I also found in the past builds a time consuming thing for ME was looking for bolts, washers etc that needed to go back somewhere and or where the hell I put the bag. So I am trying to put back the bolts and screws on certain items back in their locations to help myself out a little. As I ripen in age to a fine wine some days it's just pure vinegar................................. ........................................ .................................

Had a little time today to get to the shop and do a few things on the 71. Getting things organized for the body off day. Pulled the head light assemblies out to lighten the load on those damaged areas and bag and tag everything. So the riveted metal support across the front is cut and a lot of the fiberglass on it is screwed up. Removing the rivets to remove the support will for sure bust up more of the fiberglass. I have another support to put in, so won't this be fun! I could just get a hood surround or another clip but that blows the budget so I will be doing the work to make it right again.

You have a good nose with the convert conversion project? Just pull a mold of any piece too beat to fix. You could Fab the whole valence that is missing.

Congrats on the new project. Yeah, that nose does look a little rough, but as have others, I've seen your work you've shown here so I know it will be damn nice in the end. Oh, and SCG is one of my favorite colors!

Well Cool you will just have to wait and see. From what I have learned it is all fixable but takes a little time and patience both of which I have. I will post pictures as usuall so members can follow along if they so choose. May be awhile since the honey do list comes first. Front walkway needs pavers installed.. I tell ya working in the dirt here in Florida is a lot different then Va. The fire ants are also a nasty experience.
Anyway, hopefully I can get a few more things removed towards getting the body off.
