Some engine porn: It should be easy to tell the before from the after. The previous shop did a complete hack job.

Being done correctly now. Note, not NCRS level. She will be shown as a resto~mod with as many original parts as possible. #'s matching with fuel tank sticker intact.

This guy is amazing, he even fabricates parts!

Fuel filter required stabilization, he fabricated the part and applied heat shrink tubing.

Wow.

I did nothing, PO apparently had impact on rear driver side and front passenger, the front was just fiberglass damage.


No significant DAMAGE/rust on the birdcage
