Im planing on painting it two tone orange and white with the orange on the top being house of kolor tangelo pearl orange you mave have seen one of my earlier posts with the paint scheme picture. I have been doing body work on the car now for 2 years and cant wait to block it and seal it this spring so i can get some color on it. I still have to repair the passengers door i got from a junk yard because the old one was to badly rotten. I also have to weld a section into the driver door jamb were the stricker was pushed in and split the metal. The motor is 90% complete i just have to bolt the carb on and hooker compitition headers. I also put new brakes around the whole car and painted the entire frame. I will soon be putting a fiberglass 4 in cowl hood on it and dropping the motor in in spring aswell. Its an on going project as you know I just keep finding more and more to do to it but its comming along fast and i will worry about redoing the interior when im finished painting the car most of the interior thought is alrady striped out and ive died the panels black.

everything on the motor was completly striped down and cleaned it has all new rings, gaskets, berings, oil pump, a crane cam, performer intake, performer 600cfm carb,new springs, and valves, a new destributer from summit, hooker compitition headers, new timing chain etc... It has a TH350 trans which will soon also be rebuilt with a new shift kit. I plan on running a 3 in x pipe back with the new flowmaster super 45 mufflers. I also stripped of the vinal top and all of the moldings and emblems. I will deffinetly post more picrues as the car gets further along.
