    Looks good. I also use AMD sheetmetal. Have it on my 77Z and my 67 Chevelle. Fits great.

    All AMD parts fit really good. A few of the GoodMark parts didn't fit to well. So I sold them and reordered AMD. The tail panel was so much more crisp in the bends and stuff. Wish I would have took a picture of the two in front of each other.

    Got all my panels welded in and working on getting my lines to match up a little better. Having to massage the 1/4 up with a jack.

    Had to file and dolly the edge of the 1/4 and the deck lid. Driver's side was really good.

    Sprayed and washed the car off from all the metal work and let it set. Now I'm getting to sand and spray some epoxy . Gonna leave my floor as is for the time. Still have to install the DSE sub frame connectors. So there will be more cutting.

    A shot of how the frame rails look if you keep springs and run the DSE mini tub kit. Lots of work .

    You're doing some pretty killer work. Many talents lie in your garage.
