Awesome!  I think your paint guy has progressed pretty quickly!  I've heard of cars being stuck in paint jail for literally years...

Here is some colour biggrin

Engine is all dressed up and ready to go.

The blue wires will be replaced once the AC Delco ones arrive.

Exhaust manifolds are painted with "Cast Blast"

The new motor mounts are not exactly the same, hopefully they will work. 

I still may add a new fuel pump.

Today I degreased the front frame and gave it a good coating of flat black.

That was planned However,

This wasn't.

This has to be the last ghost !

I got a call Tuesday, the driver's side dash/cowl panel had a hole.

the patch needed to be the size of a playing card.

I was so worried that it would have been bigger.

I have had a Canadian Poncho Toolbox sticker in that corner for years.

As for the windshield, she is pitted and wiper scratched so I decided to put new glass in.

The engine goes back in Sunday moring.

And this is where things will go dark for a while.

I have chosen a different path for the colour.

Red is out.

I think it would be best explained once the car is all back together.

So,

I get the car back March 9th,

 

I have a care package being sent to me sometime later this spring from Jerel.

Once the car is all back together we will see what you think biggrin
