    Hello everyone, I am sorry I have not posted anything in a while but that's life... anyways we have not done much to her since I last posted but we have had The inner fenders sand blasted and they look super amazing. The plan is to get them powder coated soon. (I will get a picture up of them tonight) The boyfriend has welded up some holes and fixed a few rust spots. Which I also have pictures of...
    For the last couple of days the main thing we were working on was getting it home and into the garage.... but that needed some work cause the garage was a mess so we cleaned and moved some stuff and finally got her home. So I promise more work is to come!
    OH and like a lot of you suggested, I went out a bought the Connolly Hide Food and cleaner and have cleaned and put the conditioner on the seats.. I am thinking I will do that every week? What do you think?

    We have slowly been piecing together the front end so we can get an idea of how it looks and what needs to go where..

    While I have been working on cleaning the seats up, and cleaning out the trunk, the boyfriend, Corry has been stripping the roof and rear quarter.

    This is a really great picture with the coloring and the mood. I wonder what the professional photographers that we have on the hamb think of it?

    Where in Delaware are you Bekjoy? Do I know you? I'm right on the Delaware border of PA on Faulk Road... If you need a hand or photography I have a studio in Wilmington.. Good luck with the car, you don't see them Lincolns too often!
