Looks like AAA is willing to give me Classic Car Insurance. Way better coverage and agreed value. Will know later this week, I have to get my name on one of the :princess: auto titles, to qualify.

Here's some lawn poser shots to keep it a viewable post.

Still plan on running the exhaust inside the frame rails, yes ugly as is, and I need to make up some rock sliders. I also plan on going back to the bushwacker fender flairs(which will allow me to get my rear gas filler cover back on), that is why I have not trimmed the ones on there, so when I sell these the buyer can trim as they need.

Picked up my 4+ bumper from Dom's house this AM. He offered to help my out with it on Monday, .... but looks like I was a bit excited to get it on there.

Now to attach my rear fender flars, put gas tank & seats back in, reattach drive axles, then wait for more paint to arrive to pain the hood.:doh:Brakes are back on line too.:bounce:


I don't suppose I'll get a response here this late, but the fuel filler? My 1973 is forward, near the usual spot, by the passenger door. I suppose this is a mod for an exterior tank underneath?

Sweet build, one question about your paint but did you just use the Cans from Cruiser Corps to paint it ? If so did you colour sand or just shoot it and let it sit as it came out ?

no I did paint match at the time.. 10 years later I did get some Cruiser Corps spray paint for the hard top.. and it looked good at first but turned from green to blue after a year.
