Well i haven't made a post on here in months due to life issues and such. Nothing good to report either. The paint shop that i had paint it never painted it, and the owner went off the deep end and fired all of his employees and his business will be shutting down soon so i will be taking my car out before it is finished. The body work is finished and it is primed and just needs paint. Then i will be re-assembling her finally after a year and a half. Now i just have to try and find a new paint shop!

Thanks, i am going to need it. I have been looking locally for a weeks and cannot find a decent shop. If push comes to shove I might have to take it out of town, or maybe even out of state. We will see.

Sorry to hear it pard.  Been wondering what happened to you and your project.  One problem you may run into is a shop being unwilling to shoot over the prior shops priming job.

Good point. Most shops will start with bare metal because they have to stand behind their work. The one mine is at wouldn't do it any other way. One of the reasons I picked him. . .  8)

Well guys just a small update. Will be bringing the car home this Friday. It is still primed, but the body work is finished. Have not worked on the car at all in close to a year due to life...things...haha. Anyway I will be focusing on firing the engine, swapping in the 9", and getting her driving. From there I will try and find a new paint shop. It will now be a much slower pace than originally started as my career is starting to begin so I will have less time to devote to the car. I am just glad that the car will be moving forward again after all of this time! Anyway that's it for now, and I will try and keep you guys up to date as much as possible from now on.

Good news. Thanks for the update.

I've been off line for life reasons. Our redo is moving slowly but we're shooting for this summer. . . .  8)
