Willy T -
Great job you are doing there.
I like to see the work on these cars being done, but I really like to see them going back together.
Enjoy!

So we've been working on the car a bit since Christmas. It's running very nicely. Sounds good to get it back going. Here's my clip :

Thanks Fitz! I'm not as far along as you are, but after a year of work, it feels great to be so far along. Going to the upholstery shop today! Can't wait to pick out my interior.

For what it's worth, I have an album on Facebook with quite a few more pictures. Under my name: William Tunnell.

Quick update.
Working on doors and fender gaps. You'd think these things were put together once before so they should go back together easily

Hey all,
Sorry for no updates.
1. Put the car up for sale.
2. No real hits, took it back down and shoved it into the corner of the shop.
3. Started rebuilding my first vehicle, F*** F100 shortbed.
4. Couldn't stand not finishing the car, felt at peace with moving forward and pulled it back out.
5. It's at the paint shop right now. I'll post pics when I get it back.

I'm still alive. Sorry that I haven't updated, but wow...the things I find that I can get into.

For the Chevy, it's STILL at the painters. Yes, I took it at Christmas 2015 and a few weeks ago he said he'd officially started on it. No worries here as I still have my 74 F150 torn apart in the shop. The painter's a good talent and he's a friend, so in some ways, he's housing it for me

The wife pulled me into our basement (full basement) where I've built 2 bedrooms, a full bath, several closets, and a great room. New furniture, floors, everything! 1700 sq ft. remodeled and we did it almost all by ourselves. We're proud of it, but boy, it took a while.

OK, you're caught up. I'll post more when I get the car back and start working on it again.
