    Thanks everyone!

    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!

    This car is deceiving. It looks pretty solid. I thought the Triple J boys looked after this one.

    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. 🙂

    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.
