i haven't posted much about my wagon project,and it's getting close to being finished,so i figure i'll share some pics.
i bought the car at the end of august 2008.i was just going to do a couple things to turn it into my dd.well it ended up turning into a much bigger project.this is the first car that i completely stripped and rebuilt.this was also my first paint job.it's not perfect but i did learn alot about painting.i wish i had some pics of the car in bare metal.the body had no rust what so ever.the only rust was a small area by the trans tunnel behind the front seat.
i have basicly rebuilt everything on this car.anything that wears out ha been replaced.
it's got a rebuilt 250 l6/200 4r trans,complete brake system from a 4th gen f-body,17" coy's wheels,front buckets w/(soon to be made)custom center console.
the only thing a can't decide is what color to do the interior.it will either be the charcoal grey like the front seats or it will be saddle.what color would you guys go with?
i was hoping to have it done enough to drive down to goodguys this weekend,but that's not happening.

here's the car the day it picked it up



here it is as of today



a couple of the interior



and the engine



a link to a few more pics

Looks great! Where did you get all the sound-proofing from. You used a ton of it! I like the idea.

Hey, tell me a little bit about that master cylinder (vehicle sourced from, etc). Looks like a nice piece.

Great job, and thanks for the motivation :D

the whole break system is from a 98 trans am.including the booster and mc.i had to modify the firewall alittle and change the end of the pushrod on the boster.all in all it's a very easy brake kit to put on.

Looks very nice!! im in about the place you are with my 64. My car is a fairly dark bluesh Grey with a Fawn interior. I think a few guy's had great idea for your interior being grey. Good luck and enjoy. Bet you cant wait for the first cruise!!! I have a few extra parts let me know if you might need anything?:)
