    The work i saw in the last three pages is just beautiful, You are going to have a very nice ride when it's "finished". Should last a long, long time. congrats. Also I think that you showing up to help out as much as you can is just great. Maybe them seeing you helping out so much is motivating them to do such a great job!!

    Thanks for all the encouragement guys!

    Since the car will be home within the next couple of weeks I hauled the interior out to steam clean the seats and carpet.... looks pretty good after 32+ years!

    Thanks for all the feedback. Gotta give credit to the body shop since their head painter is doing the paint work.

    In most of the pics, the paint looks quite light, however, it is quite a dark brown without the camera flash. It's Cinnamon Poly (PPG paint code 2741 or Chrysler code T4) offered on Plymouth and Dodge's in '75 and '76.

    The front fenders will be installed tomorrow and one final check will be done to ensure everything is perfect before it's painted on Friday!
