oh almost forgot to ask.....So will the body come off the frame????????????????????????
the body looked good before . can't wait to see it in its new color
what a clean car to start with! sounds like a good plan, can't wait to see it done.
I cant wait to see her when shes done!! That mill is beautiful.
Cool ride I think it will turn out good
I went today and picked my leather out and bought it. I got 4 HUGE hides and they are beautiful. They are super bright white. I got to cherry pick and get the hides I wanted too! Damn I never thought it would go this far...lol!
Cool thread...thanks for the progress updates. This is my 62 XL in stock form. I sold my 54 Bel Air on supremes and my 60 VW panel to get up the $$ for this one. I'm gonna do something like this 62 Merc...love all the chrome and the simplicity of the mods...gives it a great look without being overdone.
I will be bagging mine in the next month or so (if i dont get laid off or demoted like so many of us).
keep thi pics coming
So what color is my old Galaxie going to end up being????
One hint... TOTALLY DIFFERENT (not blue)...if I told you I would have to kill ya...lol No, really I think I have it narrowed down to a gold. Guess I better be deciding for sure since it is already blasted and getting ready to start on the body work...lol
I will keep ya enformed, and yes I would like to get those valve covers.
Where'd they get those new brackets with the rubber inserts for the plug wires?
MAC's Antique Auto Parts 1-800-777-0948, it was the only place I could find them
Looking good, that is why I am afraid to start mine, LOL...I know things are going to lead to other things, to other things...you know what I mean. Anyway your is going to be sweet and good luck with the project(s)!
Thanks, do they have a website?
That white leather screams "Don Johnson"!! Are you going to pipe it in aqua blue or coral???
Just kidding...I love it!!! It will be amazing.
gonna be a sweet ride
looks cool nice car!
Looks like it should be a quick project.I like the color.You get any more projects, your going to need a bigger shop.
Well, i did go to Mens Warehouse and get me a white suit to wear. And the interior is going to be white and I am going to embroider the Miami Vice logo on the center of the back seat. Just having trouble finding a black guy to ride around with me that I can call "Tubs"...lolololol
Perhaps, Ron could be Tubs. He's not black but loves Donuts so the name "Tubs" works for him.
So Gold? or Blue?
Thats Soooooo bitchen.
I have a 61 baseline 2 door that I've been wanting top do discs on.
I'm not going any where near the depth you are.
Im really leaning toward GOLD. I am a gold whore, so it really is proper to do it in that color... dont you think the Miami Vice logo will look real nice on the back seat with me and Tubs (Ron) cruizin South Beach style?
hell yeah man, cool ride, im doin my 64 galaxie convert early 70s lowrider style...
come over and visit the other good site
Check out the steering wheel he wants to use. What do you tthink????
LOL...Thats funny! No that is NOT going to be used....JOKE ONLY! But if it was gold plated it just might work...lol
here my 62 Merc, bellflower tips and 15" astro sumpremes(unique/cragar )
Man, thats a pretty cool looking ride!
