    That's the plan! First is to get the mechanicals done, get it roadworthy, and drive it a while. If all goes well then sometime next year the lid is coming down and it's getting painted.

    Im a happy camper now; my buddy finished his Camaro and moved it out so I've got my garage space back! I pulled the 51 in last night after some cleaning and spent a few hours tonight cutting out the last of the old rocker and floor, cleaning up the braces, and starting to trim where the replacement floorpan is going in. Still 100 degrees today but a lot nicer working out of the direct sun.

    At least it looks like you have good cross bracing to work with. And yes being out of the sun this time of year is a good thing.

    I've NEVER seen a car come from the factory that couldn't be improved.....

    His Camaro came out nice; i should have took a picture. It's an 87 IROC; he ditched the 305 and put in a ZZ3 small block with a set of Edelbrock aluminum heads, a bigger cam, and a chip upgrade for the factory tuned port injection. He hasn't cut loose with the throttle yet but it sure sounds healthy.

    I didnt get a whole lot done today as my 5 year old grandson was here and wanted to help. That's cool; it's always fun breaking in a new little gearhead. We went to a carshow last night and he's excited to get this one done and take it to the show. He did say,"Paw paw, you need to put a fast motor in it!" He was pretty starry eyed at a big 6-71 blown Hemi powered Willys that was there. So anyway, we got the back half of the floor trial fitted and it looks pretty good so we pulled it back out and he painted the bottom of the panel for me.

    Don't look like it will be to long to see it motoring under its own power
