The engine compartment is just about completed.I have the firewall and hood painted the body color.The fender wells are semi gloss.All thats left to do is put the ignition wires on and fire it up!
The body is all striped down,its in great shape.I have the roof in primer, and the right side is just about done. It should be ready for paint in 2 weeks(its june 2 00 now)
These pic's show the last coat of primer.I'll sand with 400 grit and fix the small stuff I find. Then primer the spots I worked and it should be ready for paint.
