Yep. PO was in Fernandino Beach so itís familiar to some up there. It looked nicer than it is. A few shortcuts have been taken in the build and the wiring was a jumbled mess but itís getting there.

I get what youíre saying on the paint and mentality. I come here for great ideas and mostly get them but also think there is a prevalent ďproject mentalityĒ that I just donít have. I buy them to drive them, not take it off the road for 2-... years to build the ultimate machine. While I love working on them, I like being able to drive them as well. I had also considered getting it wrapped after doing the bodywork. Or maybe spraying it in a satin which typically is more forgiving and lays down better. At least in my limited experience.

I do appreciate all the ideas. Thanks for those that input.
