    Well folks, after 2-1/2 years its time to unveil my labor of love. It’s not yet 100% complete, but it’s close enough.
    Yesterday was the maiden voyage on the road, and it went pretty well. I want to thank this forum for it’s wealth of knowledge and help along the way, as this is my first ever car restoration. Below are some before and after pictures. Thanks!

                      Wow! That is very nice! The engine bay is very neat and clean. I like how you see very little extra under the hood.
