its all in the details.  I really like the darker color on the welds on the rear end.  makes it look like fresh welds.

thanks God your car wont be in the same class as mine at the NATS, I wouldnt have a chance.

well done.

Beautiful Job TIN!  I can only hope tht mine turns out as nice as yours!  Since you brought up the age thing... I purchased my first '76 T/A 400 auto that was Carousel Red
with the hood bird delete.  I was 16 then; I loved that car, it too was a black interior with the white seats, awesome combination.  I purchased that car brand new off the showroom floor for....are ya ready???!  $6100.00  I think the restoration may end up that same color for old time sake!  Again... incredible job!!

Well we mocked it up and busted it off yesterday for a few seconds just to make sure everything is well before starting on the firewall and front end. I couldn't bare the thought of wrenching on the engine over the fenders. So we did a quick test fire. Sounds crummy with open manifolds and poorly tuned. But IT'S ALIVE! IT'S ALIVE!

Video to follow in a few days.

Wow. I havent seen this thread. That thing is awesome. It is crazy how many of you on here are doing these freaking sweet resto's.

  Tin is your car going to be a trailer queen to push on and off at the shows?

Thanks Guys. No trailer queen. Maybe at first a little just to make sure I don't have to walk home. LOL When you see it you'll immediately know if I'm driving. It'll sound like it needs to upshift and it will probably be fish-tailing.  >:D ;D

Got the honeycombs done today all except for a light coat of clear. One wheel has a spot that may bleed thru. Gonna wait until completely dry and see. may have to sand a little more.

Thank you. I was so tickled with the tail lights. I almost popped some real jack out for a NOS pair but these turned out awesome.
