Factory fastback, some ass hacked the quarter panels, so i figure might as well replace everything in the rear.

Where did you order your sheet metal from? I've got quarters to do in my 66. I got a new battery tray from CJ's and the fitment is trash. Thinking NPD for the quarter skins and outer wheel house.

[qb] Are you going to mini tub it? Since you're already that far into it? Already on it, not a huge mini tub, but i can fit a 275 comfortable. Just finished the panels and this is my next project, then it's sub frame connectors.

Plans are to make it a street car- maybe open track events.
It’s got a nice little A4 blocked 347 with a FAST injunction system
T56 with a full floating 9inch
I’m on the hunt for interior pieces,door glass and rear window ..

FINALLY FOUND A HOOD! Been waiting since last sept to get one... Finally this one came up and i canceled my order. Parts are sure hard to come by now adays... However we should have color very soon.

Nice.
I got a 3m accuspray gun a while ago. Need to buy a good filtration system so I can reprint my engine compartment.

What size compressor are you using? How many CFMs? These 3m guns require a decent amount of air.

Almost ready for last coat of primer... then final block. Working on getting the hood aligned  -
