I don't understand why the bumpers are still on? At least they removed the marker lights and he has a new top huh?

Yep, that's his new lid....give him time on the bumpers bro, they'll come off....they've still got a lot to do.
Notice all of the spot putty? That's filling in all of the dings that the dumb ass that did it first missed!

Why is he getting a new top?

Are you going to Put a 1969 Rear tail light pannel in?

He's getting a new top because the original had SEVERAL rust holes the size of my hands....I'm talking all the way through so that the headliner could be seen.
The guy that took the vinyl top off and did the body work the first time around, never mentioned any of this to us. He just filled in the holes with Bondo, smoothed it over and painted it. Five months later, the rust started bubbling back through.

As for the 69 panel....thought about it but no, I/we like the round lights better plus the car keep it's value if we keep it original.

Any new updates Mike? Can't wait to see how it turns out.

I'm sure the little dude is glad you decided not to sell this one.

No updates man....I meant to go check on it last Friday but life got in the way and I didn't make it.
I'm probably going to swing by tomorrow. (Monday)

Ok, here's the latest....should be able to bring him home tomorrow but it'll be at least two weeks before my interior guy will have the time to stick the headliner back in. I've still got to get the decals ordered.
Keep in mind that all of these pics are WITHOUT the camera flash.

Well he's been back home for a week now....I've still got to get the headliner put in and a few pieces of chrome snapped on but at least I've got the decals ordered, they *should* be here today actually. I also want to repaint the pushbar.

Looking good Mike,

  Man that's night and day difference in eth paint job. I'd get that thing on Maurice's lift and touch up that overspray on the bottom.

  Let me know when the decals come in, Rocky is ready to roll.

Why go to all that trouble?? I mean a couple of donuts in that field you got and the dirt and mud would cover it all up anyway! ;D

Hey man, check your PM box....I sent you a couple of emails but I don't think that they made it through, either that or you're just being a rude bitoch and ignoring me!) :D
