......... I did everything myself and not too many people can say that these days! (Except for most the awesome folks on here)

Well body work and paint I said F?€k That. Everything else I'm going to try on my own.

Great job though.

Yea it takes a while to get body work done. And the bad part is if you do a good job no one knows all the work you did. Lol soo many people have asked what's taking soo long to get my car done. I jus tell tem they are welcome to come vet and find out for themselves. Strangely, no one wants to help with sanding, but they all want to come out the new motor in?! Lol

Nice, is that Firethorn?
I'm not actually painting it. The color is supposed to be the original color that it came with in 1975. The guy already has over 250 hours in it. I can't wait to pick it up. I can relate to help fun79Z28 as people don't mind getting greasy but cant stand to wear a mask to not inhale all the dust!
