    Really looks incredible!!! I think we fill in the antenna holes…..go with a radio delete plate…..

    I’m enjoying looking at all the detail on every part of the rust removal/fabrication and panel alignment…..impressive and great craftsmanship!!!

    Thanks JJ!!!!!

    OK… Antenna hole gone this morning!!!Β  I’m gonna keep filling holes and such and put the fenders back on make sure they are straight as can be and get them ready to blast!!!Β  Β Then.. I guess I should start thinking about doors… 😎  and taking this off the big dolly… 😎  But I want to blast the shit outta this body before I take it off the flipper over jig… 😎  get all the tiny spots of rust gone..no rust!!!!Β  😎  especially where this is going to live… in florida!

    The forums make following along on a build so much easier and fun!!!Β  Β If I am lucky enough to get a customer who will follow and post, and one of us to be excited about it enough to keep the thread fresh…Β  Β The whole build is more fun.. The more post in a build the more fun, the more pages in a thread when it’s done.. usually the more fun… 😎 just sayin.Β  Thanks for being part of the forums Tom!!!
