Got my new M&H drag radials this week which is perfect timing, because I finished up the car last night and took it out for my first cruise of the year. I have a couple small things still to do that are all cosmetic, ie: trunk kit, new car mats, black trim side marker lights etc. But overall I am ecstatic to be behind the wheel again. Feels like a humongus weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. This whole process took me 8 months to do and I am so happy it came out the way I envisioned it to be.

You need to go back to the car wash, saw a tiny bit of nat shit on the left rear bumper.

I thank you all for the kind words. I can't wait to go cruising in it tonight. It's almost surreal, I can't believe that it is done. The amount of time I have put into this car in the last 8 months is mind boggling, I would hate to see what this would cost if I had farmed out all this work. This all started from a door dig I had. I used a Amazon dent puller to pull it out, and it did that along with the paint and the primer exposing the bare metal of the door. When I took it to the bodyshop nobody said they would guarantee a match because it was painted in 93 and that paint code is now obsolete. So my buddy that painted it in 93 said strip it and send it to me, I'll repaint the whole car..... and so that's how this whole ordeal started, and of course it snow balled into the interior and everything around it. I just need a new black trunk kit to complete this entire make over for it to be complete, but that won't happen til the winter.

TTypeWhite,

Did you get to take it out and cruise around a bit this weekend?
How did it feel and drive?
I'd imagine that it gets a boatload of attention wherever you take it!

I couldn't tell on the pictures with the interior out, did you apply any sound deadener or DynaMat anywhere on the interior or trunk?
Did it get to the dyno yet? If so, would you mind sharing a graph?

ENJOY that beautiful car !!!
