    Got the body dropped onto the chassis today. Doors are installed and adjusted…no pic of that though. Started body work on hood, fenders, and trunk lid.

    Could be a pipe dream, but I might see some color on this thing before MCACN.

    Major body work is done. Everything is in 2k surfacer ready for a final block before paint.

    Both fenders and trunk lid needed holes drilled for the emblems, and also the trunk lid for the stainless molding at the bottom. Always a fun time making sure that stuff is straight.

    Looks great Adam. It's one of those colors that looks really good when fresh and really bad on a rusty old heap. Kind of like '70 Rivieras IMHO.

    Bittersweet knowing both you (Adam) and I were chasing this car… and now seeing how it’ll turn out. A little bird told me a console and shifter may make its way in there? I have the shifter body for him, and a nice console top plate….

    looking great BTW!!!

    Have the owner look in the lean to's and chicken coups... I am sure he has an abundance of consoles... LOL

    Adam…. The SEM Cordova brown is fairly close… I did my seat backs and bases and they turned out well…

    For those needing to paint their dashboards, A pillar covers, and rear package tray piece…here is an updated color code from the old ditzler code of 23320. This is a matted color, so it dries with some flatness. I realize the top of the dashboard and package tray should be FLAT, but I had a hard enough time getting this color.
