Time for Color

Always amazed at how much a little bodywork makes. She’s as flat as possible (How does a curved car get flat?) Time to start applying color

A few of my own touches:

  • Eyebrows adjusted to match headlight rim diameter
  • All cockpit edges rolled 100%, including drops to door latch
  • Rear ’round taillight’ area removed for proper fit of rectangular tail lights
  • Full perimeter exhaust outlet.
  • All wheel arches rolled to simulate aluminum wired edge.
  • Oil Cooler lines reworked to align to front end
  • Wiper holes and defogger holes 
  • Tee nuts installed for hood stops and defogger trim
  • Front and rear quickjack holes configured for ‘sliding’ fit.
  • Drain hole added to fuel cap recess
  • Period-correct hood latches added

Coming Out!

HUGE DAY! Took her out in public for the first time. Photos here. It is absolutely amazing how these things will draw a crowd.

Three years, three months, three days. Sometimes it feels like it took forever, other times, it was just yesterday I was pulling her home from Lees Summit

Let the fun begin
