      I keep toying about going OG color brown and cream or pigalle.

      I think with panama beige and pigalle interior would be sick!!!!!


      Got the drop spindles today and adding some salt and water to the rear fender yesturday and after letting sit for 1 day it turned out the way I wanted

      bleach and vinegar mixed 50/50 works really well for that too. and really fast. I don't blame you for getting one of Johnny's trans raise kits, cant beat it for the price. Like you said, it's way easier than making one yourself.

      Decided that the 63 I got the other day will be the parts car for this one.
      the 63 was hit HARD in the pass front quater. To the point the welded a whole new quater section on. Cut the dash in half and all the way down the center of the trunk to the gas tank.

      Today I welded in the beam adjusters in. Cut the rear driver side foot ret area out to raise it up to make a flat pan.

      Spent the day steeling stuff from the 63 and installed it on this one

      Wiper motor. Damn thing looked brand new
      pulled the motor out
      removed the fenders from the 63
      removed the gas tank
      swapped out the ignitions
      install wiper switch
      pulled the tie rods of the 63 beam
      Pulled the speedo cable
      etc. Etc. Etc. Etc.

      loose knows my opinion on the matter and it's his car so he can fully do what he wants.



      on a side note i'm getting ready to make my own bolt on spring plate extenders for correcting rear toe. totally safe and fully adjustable to allow you to really dial in the rear alignment. best of all priced cheap. when i'm back on my game i'll throw them up in the chat section for anyone who wants a pair.


      rear floor section came out pretty awesome

      it's funny and sad that you cut up a perfectly restore-able car by midwest/east coast standards


      i'm hoping to bug you when the time comes to go bus shopping

      Lol. Everything is restorable. Its just money and time brutha.

      Pan head turned out to be fooked up to. The whole rear quarter had something wrong going on for real. Found some rivets behind the fender attachment section.
      pretty much whole passangers side was fixed at somepoint. And not done the nest..


      Let me know mang I will check some stuff out for you. The biggest PNW ACVW show is coming up in 3 weeks. Sure to be some good chit there..

      when i finally jump into my oval you're gonna be shaking your head

      3 weeks? i don't even think i'll be fully recovered by then. i played some Wii for a little bit tonight and now i hurt like a mofo recovery will be very long, which will draw out the baywindow build and thus the split window upgrade.

      your progress is coming along nicely however and it's nice to see that the homeowners associations out west appear quite lax in their rules
