Thanks guys. I'm hoping it sees the road sometime soon but there is a lot left to do.

For this season, we will be looking at something a bit more cost effective (IE cheaper) but can look into baller status at a later date.

That looks stunning. Awesome color. Did you happen to notice how they masked the jambs, hood, and trunk?

Thanks Bill. I didn't get a good look but my Dad mentioned they did it in a way to avoid a defined line between the jams/rest of the car.

So the paint has been ruined (wetsanding) but being brought back to life so it's one big piece of glass.







Pops got to installing his dynamat (not sure the brand) material as well.




Some parts have also started to show up as well.

Thanks guys. Can't wait to see how it looks in the sun after it's cherried. My dad, who is colorblind mind you, says the pics don't do it justice.

Little more sanding, little more polishing, a lot more shine. She is coming along. My Dad can't wait to get it out in the sun to see it really pop.

I love that it looks like it's being built in a strip mall store front

Exterior trim pieces are painted and ready to go back on the car. She got her first bath today. Still waiting for those sunny day pics.

A wild t-top appears! Rubbers are in and settling before they will be glued. It's actually weird to see it with the t-top on. All trim has been painted black for a more modern look.

Painted black as well as key hole. They are normally chrome/shiny. Personal preference but since they protrude, no sense hiding it with body color paint IMO.
