Shes come along way

New Trunk drop panels welded in, New inner rear wheel arches in, New rear tail light panel fitted, and of course two new rear quarters.

Looking back through my photos, makes you relaise just how much work is involved in restoring them

Looking good. 2 years if your first post was when you started.
Time gets by quickly on these projects and if you're like me, you have to find time to work on them.

You will be very glad you took the time to do it right.

Looking very good. Just finished a 69 Torino. Looks like you are a doing all the work yourself. Are you going to also paint it yourself. (you will get very sick of sanding)

Thanks,

Yes will paint it myself, painted a few cars now, not sure of colour just yet, i do like the satin black but also know how hard that is to get a clean job.

It also has a motor back in and drives, albeit just up and down the driveway, heres my youngest backing it out of the shed under its own steam

Trying to finish off the drivetrain and brakes etc before tackling the final finish work
