    Looks way better without the trim. Ditch the mud flaps, and fix the front bumper.

    Also, I found the gauge pod this morning... pics this afternoon.

    I will probably be keeping the trim that runs along the bottom of the car, but the wheel well trims will not go back on. I have a nice set of mudflaps to go on the car afterwords, they are stainless as well and really look good in my opinion. I have been holding on to them over a year already. I will hope to fix the front bumper tomorrow along with the header panel. And pictures!

    Default Body Work Week Two

    Stage 2

    Header panel, fender, and quarter panel (semi) completion.

    The header panel was cracked by some moron in a Jeep Wrangler who backed up into it.



    And the drivers side header panel was smooched into the fender, even actually rolled over the fender.

























    And yes..painting is beginning to become a hobby of mine.





    All Primered up!







    Till next time!

    Nice work. Please don't tell me that someone went through all of that artificial sweetener just to make paint barrier. I can't wait for the late spring to get my mom's CV painted.

    Thats why i can only get some work done every week or so, lots of coffee. Yea, after about 20 years old a dd really needs to be freshened up by a coat of paint.

    Cool Bullitt Wheel Installation and Burnout

    I installed the bullitts today. Dont laugh at how puny they look or at how my car went from POTM to a hooptie lol

    Currently on all four corners lie 245 45 17 and well that just does not fill out the wheel well, well at all.

    I got some wholesale prices for some other tires and in time i will probably go with some 255 50 or 55's 17 on all four corners.

    Oh and as promised some aftermath of







    My absolute favorite picture



    Some burnout pics. None with smoke though









    Oh and if you can't tell the car is extremely dirty.

    Love what You've done W/Your Vic. It looks very rust free and the blackout treatment on the front panel is hot! I've got an '87 two-door myself and I'm slowly turning it into an '80. I think some of the older trim items are more elegant, like the "LTD"
    script tail lenses, like You have, and an early style grille. I got a pair of early '79 only clear front park and turn lenses and an upright LTD script hood orn. w/clear plexiglass inserts. I have two sets of rocker panel molding from a '79 Landau two-door for someday.
    It's wider than the later style and goes clear to the bottom.
