Fun fact – I still want to paint it. I have almost all of the lower 6″ of metal on a shelf at home. I am resisting the urge to mess with it though. Drive and enjoy!Scott SainParticipantApril 20, 2021 at 11:48 amPost count: 386JeremyParticipantApril 20, 2021 at 2:00 pmPost count: 132PeteParticipantApril 20, 2021 at 3:29 pmPost count: 1104
Josh & Co. did an outstanding job representing the car, no surprises at all. I’d buy from any of them again in a second. They didn’t do any of the paint/body work….they bought it as a “Jigsaw” puzzle….it had been blown apart for paint and never reassembled by a p/o, and that’s where their story with it began.
It is a solid car, but it does have some superficial rust creeping on the bottoms of some lower body panels. Pans, channels, pillars, nose are all groovy. I know there’s no reason at all to mess with it. I do try to take that OCD part of me and keep it locked away….so far I’m winning. 🙂John JonesModeratorApril 21, 2021 at 10:30 amPost count: 10806

I know someone who has told you that a few times.
FOR SURE! Maybe it’s time to sell it and start another low light project? I will DONATE a shell and pan to anyone who wants to spend the money to build a super sick Low light…. 😎 But I am getting low on parts and the one’s I have have been picked through…

My kids (and I’m pretty sure my wife) wouldn’t be happy if I sold it. They’ve really grown attached to it being a part of the family. Plus I’ve added all of the features to this one that I want….I definitely don’t want to start over there, especially on another engine.
I really need to get off of my ass and install the rebuilt 4.12 trans I got from Scott Sain over a year ago, I’ve just not wanted to take it all apart to do it. Also have a dual circuit master and new hard brake lines I planned on installing for whenever I do drop the trans out.FranzModeratorSeptember 9, 2021 at 3:24 pmPost count: 5287
Modified shoe boxes for no heat. Sand blasted yesterday and painted today. Ready to send out in a couple of days after the paint is fully cured.PeteParticipantSeptember 10, 2021 at 6:50 amPost count: 1104

Cars on Kiawah yesterday. 280 cars, only 4 VW’s. The Porsche 356 was the featured car this year, with over 30 there. Class winner was a ‘58 356A Speedster driven from Tennessee. My pile:
I could never spend BIG money on a car, but if I were to it would be one of these:PeteParticipantMarch 20, 2022 at 5:31 pmPost count: 1104

Looks sick Pete. The Porsche drums and steelies are going to give it a whole new look.
