Body shop visit update

Saw the goat today to check on the progress and all the paint was stripped. I'm proud to say I'm in the club of "This is getting more expensive than I originally thought!" Soooo, the hunt for a new bondo free front fender starts!
Here are some pix:

Thats the same color as my 66, but yours is more put together. Good luck, and yes it gets expensive quick. But making it rustfree will be worth it.

It's only money. You'd just spend it on something silly... Like food or shelter...

I just tell the wife that it's cheaper than drugs!

I guess I could always sleep in the back seat if things get too pricey.

Recent update

The new quarter panels are installed, the front clip & frame is off and the engine is stripped down. Now it's off to get the frame blasted!
Found some great, rust free fenders here in KC so that will help the cause!
