Lowlight jigsaw puzzle

Postby jb » Sun Nov 16, 2014 8:18 pm

Few weeks ago dragged home someone's abandoned ghia project....a 58 coupe in a million and one pieces #-o #-o #-o came with a second roached out parts car also a 58 =D> That almost broke in half when 4 guys lifted it onto the trailer ](*,)

After much clean up and organizing.....started the headliner

Image

Came out titties....man the pinpoint vinyl is easier than a German wool one!

Image

Front and rear windshields in, that Chrome trim sure is a whore!

Image

Image

Dash all cleaned up and guages back in...
