    Love it! Nice work Franz.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Thanks! Feeling motivated to get this car driving again. Polished paint and helping Jesse today.

    Sand blasted and painted some parts for mechanical assembly today.

    The heat riser on the intake manifold was plugged with carbon…I busted it loose with a cable chucked in a drill.

    It’s nice to see a car you can rub and rub and rub on and the customer just wants more!!!  😎

    I finished polishing aprons, front fenders and front quarter panels yesterday. Every square inch of the external surface. Its a lot of work…but less than doing a paint job.

    I assembled the transaxle and prepped for installed after that.

    Installed transaxle, adjusted/bleed brakes, cleaned the tarboard, adjusted hinges, and had to weld the hood striker back together.

    Going to stack the engine tin next and get this machine running.

    We had a nicer rear bumper in our stash. I polished both the front and rear bumpers, along with cleaning all the OG paint brackets and hardware. Looking stellar! Engine assembly/install to go. I hope to be driving early next week.

    Them bumpers look sweet!!! and are OG as it gets!!  That’s valuable to me!!! Better than any new “china” bumper…!!  Nice Franz!!  He cares…. Thats why he spends the time to find a NICER OG unit when he could have put the worse unit on and kept rolling…

    I think a new front windshield gasket with the trim in it would really add to this one.

    Yeah, I want to do the windshield trim too….but need to finish up the original scope of the project and see where we are at.

    I cleaned all of the engine tin and stacked the Painter’s Grinding rebuilt longblock yesterday. That is original paint engine tin!
