    All primed, ready for paint tomorrow.. Even the primer is better than that shitty pink..

    Who needs a spray booth when you have "good neighbors". You talk about traditional hot rodding...you are the man shooting that thing in your drive. No mask, no fan, no filter. It's exactly how I do my paint jobs (except I wear a mask and so should you) but the way my garage is situated I can paint in the backyard which is a little more private.

    Love what you did to that box. It is 100% better.

    Luckily my neighbors are great, they could care less.. Although a mask would have been a good idea..

    900 Times better. Love the whole shebang, but the new dash and interior is spot on. Nice work.

    i like this picture... I'd love to see how it looked with some scooped cruiser skirts that follow the buick trim, similar to the Junior Conway car.

    AMAZING JOB! i'm sure i've never seen that big a turn around in that short a time. and while you didn't even touch some parts of the car, you still improved the overall look and style of the entire car. when i saw it at lead east last year i expected big changes but never imagined this. again, great job.

    Thank you to all.. I am extremely happy how the car is turning out.. I had a vision when I bought the car, and it's pretty spot on with it. A few more little things here and there and it'll be done..... For now...
