My Concours Restoration is Almost Complete!

Well its been a long 4 years but my 67 GTO is in the final stages of completion.
I started this endeavor as a quick restore on my GTO that I have owned since 1982 but it just snowballed and I decided to go full bore.
I just found this site so I have a ton of pics to post up if anyone wants to see the progress. I have also restored numerous GTO's, Chevelles and Camaros so if I can help anyone out just message me.

Early stages of the restoration.
I removed the body from the frame and put it in a body cart I made.
Stripped down the cowl and inspected. for some reason A/C cars have an issue with the cowls rotting out. My car was solid

Rear quarters were in good shape, very little rust over L/S wheel opening and lower quarters. Trunk was solid. L/S door needed work. It must of been hit at one point.Floor was solid but pitted all over. I replaced the floor with a one piece floor. The tail section was pitted around the tail lights. I replaced it with an NOS panel I was lucky to find on ebay

Frame sandblasted, painted and detailed.
I installed all new Moog front end parts. I stayed away from the poly kits. When using the poly kits in the past on other cars they squeak and creak alot.

I'm definitely interested in seeing a Concourse Resto Silverglaze '67. I have one with the same color combo but it's a post coupe without the vinyl roof. I'd love to see what you came up with for the exhaust tips and their correct placement. Did you use resonators?

When the only tool in your toolbox is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.
