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

Some of the gas tank work that was done, new tank since the old one was rusted. It was coated external and internal to prevent any future rusting.

Everything got an epoxy coating, including straps.

WOW!

Waiting for it to warm for paint. New estimated completion date this Sumner.

As he has been working on the car, he has come across issues that he did not feel right not addressing, I am thankful for that so being patient so the car comes back correct.
