    Nice friend. The car looks great.

    Last you said paint was waiting for funds...are you just going to owe him some favors and pay for materials or is there a payment plan involved for getting the car done ahead of schedule?

    He is a good friend.

    I was going to wait on paint. I just had planned on doing the jambs, doors, and window channels. I figured that would allow me to put in the head liner, windows, and some of the weather stripping.
    After dropping off the car and talking about what I wanted to do he said that he was just going to paint it.
    I'm paying for supplies.

    I got a chance to go work on the car for a while. I also took some pictures of more body work progress.

    Here is the fender that I replaced the lower portion because of the some rust.

    Lower valance. There are a lot of hours put into this panel. It was pretty rough. I bought a new reproduction panel to replace it but it was complete junk.
