I have a bunch of AMD panels and am hopeful that they are reasonable to fit up, but Im not really holding me breath either. LOL

I really dig the pics with your kids. They will look back on these pictures once they are older with fond memories. Knowing they helped dad with his car. Good times. Enjoy it. It goes by fricken too quick.

Keep up the awesome work,
Jim
doors skin are dynacorn, fit great. I use a regular hammer and dolly to start folding the lip and a cheap modified doors skin hammer to finish.

Wow June seems so far away. I would take this time to mock up everything in the car and get as much done as possible while the car is in metal.

I would install the motor, trans, suspension, radiator, master cylinder, brakes and start running all of the lines including all of the wiring. It's not fun drilling holes in a freshly painted car.

Looking back I wish I would have built the entire car including the interior and then taken it apart and to do the paint and body work.

some goodies for my late christmas
I had some difficulties to ajust my hood with the worn hinges and my rebuilt doors hinges still had some play.
I ordered me a gift from ringbrothers.

And the surprise. One hinge is incomplete and missing some parts.
It was friday and I contacted them. In less than one hour I received a response from them. Monday they shipped me an other hinge and a t shirt and received it the next day.

I am really impress with their customer service, I think they earn a good highlight.

here is the billets masterpieces
