Body back on chassis

This morning the body shop picked up my chassis. It has now been lovingly bolted to the body.......some pics!
2nd pic is Al, the owners son adjusting the fit and snugging the body down.

Sooo F&%g trick.

Any timetable for paint? Bod looks close.

Rukee, That is for the gas tank filler neck. Alky, The body is closer to finished than it looks...the trunk lid, doors, and fenders are already prepared. The engine should be complete by the end of August. I am gonna order the tranny and converter next week.......Meanhile, I gotta clean and regroup the garage so I can do the wiring, dash install, engine/trans, etc......E

I would put the popcorn emoticon on here, but we don't have one, Corvette forum does..
Anyway, this is getting good! What color are you painting it? That is Nice, congrats Eric, body shop is getting it!
Alky, hear you on Hot, it is nasty hot for the last couple months, now the rest of the country is catching up and exceeding the temps here. I watch the news and 95 and humid sounds pretty good, just sucks to work in.

Burning rubber since 1982!!
My photobucket, lots of dif car pics.

High of 102 today. Thankfully the place I work has AC which is rare for manufacturing, but when your dealing with gunpowder hot is not good!

Also hear you on the Smilies. I've mentioned it before. Sometimes they say what words just can't express.
