Inspirational Build .

Sea Five , I applaud your quality and dedication . A very small percentage of people get to where you have taken this project . I really dig the way you have brought this one back .
As well , you served as an inspiration for my 67 - 442 build .. I'm looking forward to seeing my Ron Roth Dash - and 9 wiring harness's from American Auto Wire ... It is just that my car is in Kansas , and I'm in Phoenix . Hope we can compare some pictures soon ..
Well done Sir . J2 .

Wow I love your car, great job! My 67 is also Spanish red but im changing it to Tahoe Turquoise. Im about 2 hours away from finishing building a rotisserie. Then ill install the engine, transmission with the Gearvendors OD to see if i need to alter the trans tunnel. Ill do what ever it needs, then pull the body, put it on the rotisserie and get busy.
Did you find a W30 core support somewhere or cut yours for the vents? You have done really nice work, cant wait till im that far along.

Steve

Steve: These cars look great in Tahoe Turquoise i'm sure you'll love it.Get your rotisserie done and get started just remember to take your time and enjoy it the finish line is far away I have almost four years into my car. At one point my car was hit in the left front. The cowl had some old damage so I believe thats when the core support got changed.I was able to buy the factory W30 core support.My car already had the red inner fender wells and the battery mounted in the trunk.Some day I may buy the million dollar air cleaner

This was a awesome thread with lots of info.This car rebuild so cool i really enjoyed seeing it come together.On a side note Dude after seeing your garage i guess i would have thought you would have a better cherry picker!! You could have lifted the body off with it and with two of them frame rolls out so easy. Go borrow one from a friend.This would have saved you a lot of time. Next thing is why would you sand a car!!Have you not heard of soft strip!! Okay my points of easy way to do it fast have been made. Sea5 You have inspired many with your efforts to get work done on there cars. I think this effort you made on your car is top quality the workmanship tells the story.

Thanks all for the kind words. I've just been picking away at some small stuff lately. Front and rear glass is installed so it is coming together.
I received my interior from Legendary looks awesome I'm very happy with the quality. My upholstery guy has the rear seat done he said it fits like a glove and is very easy to work with. Can't wait to do the install.
