You build 'em and Dad makes 'em Go. Is that what you're sayin'?!
Zak, any color will fit this body style. And with those wheels, it would look like out of the 60's . Keep us informed with pictures and photos.
Will you run upholstery or aluminum panels on the doors, like the rear wheel tubs?
Aluminum interior in this car. I’d like black tuck and roll but dad wants aluminum and it’s his car. Lol
Yeah, aluminum would look ideal plus light in weight for the doors and the trunk.
Father knows best.
Haven’t forgot about the thread just haven’t had much big progress to post. Mainly been sanding and rubbing. And fitting fiberglass, and other non fun things. Got it back at the body shop, hopefully the whole car will be in one color of primer by tomorrow night if we work on it real hard. Then we can take it to our painter this weekend if we get decent weather.
Zak, progress Is progress. Can't wait to see some color, Carp!
Yeah, sometimes it feels like you're not doing much. Yet the hours just melt away on it. Looking good Zak!
It’s in primer! Gotta spot a few places we missed, scuff it, and it’ll be ready for paint. Jesse laid the primer down heavy so we have something to sand.
Nice. I hope that is a posed picture and your painter is not painting without a mask. Paint coated lungs do not work real well.

Your Pops itchin' to be in the seat yet? I bet he was smiling from ear to ear hauling her home.
Yeah he’s all smiles now lol

WOZZER that is a fine looking race car.
Very nice 2 tone. I hope you have good luck with the car. You know what they say about green race cars. Personally I have never had a problem with the color.
Starting to get pieces on it, and look like a car.
Beautiful paint job Zak . I use to have a 34 ford coupe painted that type of green or very similar to it. I believe that was called corvette poly green. Anyways its looking real nice. Congrats.
Thanks! This is 68 camaro rallye green, I’d say the color is very similar.
Got the high tech engine air scoop installed thanks to some advice from Ric Panneton. Also got the rear bumper bolted on. I like bolting parts on permanently.
Such a cool jigger, it sits & looks great!
Custom Buick tail lights look good on it.
wow looks great i like green
Coming out beautifully!
Little overview of our shop. Ain’t much but it’s home!
