Just gorgeous, I am always impressed with your work.

I just wish that I lived closer so that I could come and sweep the floors and try to learn just a fraction of your skillsets.

Again, awesome work!

Most everything I have is 1968 parts and that's not much.
Fresh air vent box, rear view mirror, some other odds and ends but none in great shape.

Drums media blasted and painted:

Spent a lot of hammer and dolly time on the lower grille support panel. It was part of the front end damage that was on the car when I got it:

Ran out of 2k build primer, so this was an epoxy only job with a slight bit of filler.

Decided to run one side through the blast cabinet and wire wheel to see if it was salvagable:

Pulled a wheel brake cylinder today:

Needs a bit of cleaning:

Got the outside clean and ran a hone through the center:

After looking at this, I can't help but wonder what I'll find inside the rear axle housing?

Media blasted and painted the rear axle housing.
Cleaned up the brake lines and reinstalled them.
Still waiting for some parts before I can install the brakes and drums.
