Default 69 roadster, ready for summer

some of you may have seen my posts on chemical stripping before Christmas , anyway got my 69 roadster mostly complete, ready for summer, stripped it down to bare glass, bodywork , gelcoat , painted it myself, original motor freshened up, new carpet , redid the seats , and a few new interior pieces, etc, super happy with how it turned out.

Really a nice looking vert Dave. It came out very nice and the color is beautiful . Love the side pipes and yes you are ready to cruise. There's not enough to be said about Dub. His experience and support to me and many of us is and our projects is second to none.

Great job, beautiful vert. Just wondering where you purchased side exhaust covers.

Looks like it turned out really well! Which paint system did you end up using?

Paragon produces those side pipe covers, and that is who I buy all my parts from, but in this case I had some US funds in an account so I bought them from David Crane, so I could do a wire transfer. They were slightly cheaper than Paragons price.
$ 2150.00 I believe.
