RE: 66 SD restoration


Got started on cleaning up the doors, hood, trunk lid, rad support and inner fenders. Knowing how long it takes for croming I dropped the rear bumper off figuring it could be a few months but he phone the next week and said it was ready. I`m looking at putting all new glass in. Love the look of the dark green tinted glass but against the lite blue paint not so much. They make a smoked colour glass that would look real good if its not to dark or I could go with clear. I would like to hear from others on what choice they would use? The dark green and smoked glass can be found on Ebay

Coming along nicely.

Amazing how that works eh? All it takes is $$$$, and more $$$$!!!

What is it with us car guys? We pinch pennies in some areas but when it comes to an old car, the wallet's open wide...

Nice looking job on the seats. Is that a custom job?, or can you buy a premade kit and have them installed?
