Eric,

The answer of why the consol was in the other car is easy, you had a lot of parts wanted to keep that consol and put I where you knew you wouldn't accidentally sell it.

Now if you can tell me why I just ordered parts I knew I ordered before but are nowhere in sight. You can let me know.

Taking some more parts to the body shop this week end. Good news is that this time it is only a couple of boxes and not a truck load. AND.....I get to look at a couple of spay outs to decide on the correct shade of blue.

Whaaa Hoooo.....

I had to find a different trunk lid for the 442. While the lid looked good, it had a lot of rust on bottom side by the fold over lip. It ended up after looking a couple of other lids, I pulled the lid off of the Cutlass parts car I have. I initially did not want to use it as I knew the Cutlass had been hit in the rear at one time. However after pulling it and removing 1/4 inch of bondo it ain't as bad a I thought. Took it to the body shop on Friday and it fit pretty well. Need some messaging, but looks like itos a better starting point.

Lid on car getting ready for some blocking. While I was down there, I also got to see the hood repairs. Cracks all gone

A glimpse into the future

I also picked up the paint spray out. I cannot wait to see her wearing her twilight blue dress.

I would not be too sure about that. When the time comes can you say "vacation day". I don't want to be in John hair while he is painting, but I will definately be there within hours after it is painted.😜

Ha, I get it. I would want to be there too. Does John have a date in mind to have it painted yet?

No date yet. Lots to do and weather will dictate.

I have not posted for a while, work has been absolutely overwhelming at times. (By the way, Why does every time they update the mobile site the reply area gets smaller font. Do they not know I am getting older?).

When last I left, I had taken the 70 Cutlass trunk lid down because the 442 had rust on the lip underneath. While sound, the Cutlass lid beaded some tweaking. For a while I had a WPP (porky pine) package on the trunk.


Asy you can see it looks really good now.

Here are the latest, she is basically block sanded ready to get one last coat of primer and get pulled back apart to paint the jambs. Here is to color 2018!

I also ordered the pearl interior from Legendary last week, and while it was all suppose to be shipped at the same time; my carpet came yesterday. A early Christmas present for me.

When I ordered my interior from Legendary, everything came at different times. I don't think the gold color is as readily available as the pearl.
Did you order the package tray from them too? I was not happy with mine and I wish I would have installed something different.

I hope the weather cooperates and John can get her painted. To my amateur eye, the body looks super straight.

Thanks Tom, I am anxious to see it in color! I had to look back at the beginning of the thread to see her start to come full circle.

Thanks Rick. Yes I ordered package tray from them. It is Black, and I opted for the one with holes in it for the speaker. I am not sure if that was a good choice or not. I would like to do something similar to what you did with your speakers. What didn't you like about the package tray?

It doesn't have the "mesh" look like I've seen on others. There's no texture. It is basically a flat piece of thick cardboard dyed gold. I'm not sure the factory ones ever looked like the one I have.

They may have commonized with the Chevy style. Chevelle trays are basically painted board.
