Let's get an update, how's the body work coming along? Did you finish up your mini-tub project / qtr panels?

Thank you.
It's a lot of work and I know now why body shops get so much for body and paint work. I have about 10 hours in 1 qrt and trunk lid now.

Autoweld, another good chassis shop from the state of PA.....

Both are within driving distance of me, but S&W is a little closer.

Autoweld is up in the northern part of PA, not too far from where I'm going testing.

Now that's something you never thought you'd hear, me going testing....LOL

Make it that the car will be painted by my birthday and that will be a great present.

Don't worry my b-day is 20 days before Christmas, so you got some time.

I dig the Frankenstein look. Leave the paint to the show car crowd.

















Just kidding, I'll have to paint mine next winter too.
