Looking good.  Dont you feel good when you finally reach a milestone?
This is the extent of my body work so far.  I got the front nose prepped and ready for primer.

okay well its been awhile since ive updated, and frankly ive been really busy so not too much went on.....did get the motor set in after a little problem of the transmission case breaking. also last night i just finished block sanding out the rest of the body, so its finally ready for the second coat of primer and final sanding....im going to test fire the motor today....well here in about 5 minutes.


engine in with a welded up tranny!!!


floor prepped ready for the new floor pan!!


mmm straight body!


taking shape now


youll probablly hate me for this but this is my NOS front bumper and lower spoiler....BOTH WERE GIVEN TO ME!!! the day i left for t/a nats.


and last but not least the hood that makes the car..im thinking of even putting a cowl hood on cause i do have one....that was also given to me :D

but anyways this is my progress so far....im gonna try to lay another coat of primer this weekend and weld the new floor in then its a day of blocksanding and off to the paint booth....!!!!

good luck, keep it up.

Kickstart my heart is the better of the two by far......but none are as good as the ACDC the whole back in black album or high voltage album!!!!!
