    Well figured I'd finally share my 77. Named her Suzette cause it sounded slutty. My car has always been my slut cause she's loud, fast and does what I want, hehe. Anyways, I've had her since highschool and is still my daily driver, almost 10 years later.

    When I first got her, my uncle (original owner) sold it to me for a paint job on his vette, my dad did that.

    Thanx for the replies. Its just difficult to do this on my daily driver. All the body work has to get done on my down time at work. I pretty much had to fix one panel at a time in one day. Luckily I work at a body shop, hehe.

    That's cool that you still have your high school car...especially a big bumper car.:bowtie:

    How much "fun" did you have with your AC Delete? I got that same delete box for mine, heard some horror stories about its fitment though. How hard was yours to install?

    Keep up the good work!

    Honestly, it wasn't that bad. It fit pretty well, I think maybe one of the holes didn't line up, just covered the hole with caulk. Was just alot work, taking the fender off, changing the heater core and what not. It was actually more a hassle to get it, than to install it.

    Sounds all too familiar. Took 3 months to get mine, was told a 3-4 week wait when I bought it.
