    Yeah, there's color in the jams and engine compartment! The car get's blocked out and sent into the spray booth and gets painted either tomorrow or first thing Monday morning. I was promised that next weekend it will be cleared and buffed out....

    Wow..... [​IMG]

    Again, my appoligies for the poor lighting. But you can get the idea.... it looks great in person![​IMG]

    The doors are hung & adjusted, the jams are done. [​IMG]

    Bret fixed the Bozo hack job I did on the shifter hump. I think the floors look fantastic for an east coast car. You guys out west have no clue as to what we have to work with up here. [​IMG]

    The next time I post pictures of my car it's going to be sitting in the sun shinning like a diamond. :wav:





    I CAN'T WAIT.

    This Nov. will be 9 yrs. I own this car. To see it get closer to being finished is really exciting. Even if the engine scatters in 20 miles (again...) at least I can sit in the garage and admire it.

    Maybe I'll venture up to Marcus Dairy one Saturday night.... [​IMG]

    Looks like it is coming along nicely. Look forward to seeing it painted. I figure it will be at least a year before mine is ready for paint. Keep up the good work.
