The stripe came out really nice too. I think it might actually come home next week...fingers crossed.
Wow! Really is looking great. '67 is one of my favorite years as I like the chrome mesh grille inserts and the taillights over the '66.

10 years and over budget? LOL I have learned not to set a time frame on completion and just figure it'll be done when its done, and pay what it takes knowing that the word "budget" is an abstract term. LOL Once you are rolling down the road, all that time and money will be behind you and nothing but smiles will be in front of you.

Now if I owned the car, I would have had to have the Ram Air tub/air cleaner added to the car.

It'll be a show car winner for sure and a blast to drive.

She’s finally back home! Well, sort of. Actually I had to put it at my parents house temporarily as my garage is getting torn apart. Had a leak in the garage windows that destroyed the wall, so that’s all getting repaired. Now I’ve got to finish off the interior and a couple of other little details, and get some test miles done. I’m very happy how it turned out. I can’t believe it’s finally done! More pics to follow once it’s all finished.

Doc, great job. She's beautiful! So happy for you that she's finally finished, that she survived the crooked shop owner, and that you made it through your health scare. Thanks for cataloging the entire experience for us. There's a ton of useful information and excellent photos for us who are undertaking the same project to refer to.

Just wondering, were you able to get any of your money back?

It's not who you are underneath, it's what you do that defines you.

I never got a dime back from that scumbag, and I had to buy a bunch of extra parts that he sold, like one of my nos front fenders. He’ll get what’s coming to him one day...

I’ll post more pics once I’m all done with the interior and obsessing over the little details. Even though the shop did a great job, I’m finding little things here and there to knit pick. OCD!!!
