Your car is making me sick. So sick i want to come steal it.
Ohhh...that was not my intention! Better wait till more work is done. Best time will be just before paint, but the shop is well protected by our landlord and his 12 gauge. I didn't want to clean up that mess...
I like this colour from the first moment i have seen it. Absolute stunning in person!
My problem is that i have done so many mods on the body and suspension i want to be sure that everything is well before i take the car for such an expensive paintjob. That means either big cash for paint or i'll paint it myself in an inexpensive colour first. That gives me the option to change things if needed without destroying a beautiful paintjob. Whatever i decide to do, first i have to collect some funds....
Thanks guys! I really appreciate your kind words!
Due to the stretching of the quarters and using '73 doors the gaps were not good. Especially the upper corners of the doors. Otherwise they were too wide almost on the complete lenght. I used welding rod to reduce the gaps. Welded in and grind to shape.

Nice fabrication work, a lot of hours! That lapped seam on the quarter looks a little nasty-rust usually creeps out of a seam like that later on.
Yeah, i know bout that. It's tinned now so rust will have no chance. Seam sealer on the inside helps too. It was an old repair i fixed. A new quarter panel would been better, but to get new quarters here will kill me on the shipping....
