Thanks. It is pretty exciting.Let'* just say that there is never a dull moment with this car even though its in peices right now. It is interesting to see how cars where put together back in the day. They were light and fast. The factory says that this car weighs in at a little over 3500lbs but I have people that have their cars completed the way mine will be and they got a little over 2900lbs.

Sounds like a sweet project. There is nothing like going through and rebuilding a car to your own personal taste. Gives you a special connection to the car.

I am thinking that I am going to paint this car as close to the same color as my Bonneville. Then its going to get the flat black pinstriping that it came with.That is unless someone can think of something better....

Thanks for th code number. I will definitely do the clear coat. I am thinking about painting both cars at about the same time (rock chips and dents in the Bonny are driving me up the "wall"). I will have to post some pics of the problem areas on the Bonny here this weekend.

Yea my hood is okay still. Its my front bumper. There is a chunk of Fiberglass missing(that way before I got it from the dealership. Kinda wonder how it got there cuz it wasn't there when I first looked at the car. Same goes for the dent in the trunk lid.) and then it was blasted by an idiot from my school that decided it would be nice to drive in the middle of the road in front of me and slow down to 25mph (after an ice storm so there was road salt and gravel all over the area that he was driving on). Needless I am a little ticked off about that one LOL.
