Impressive. I'm working on a similar project in Tucson. I'll keep you posted soon as I learn my way around the site. Yours looks great.

I finally had some time to cut and buff the GTO. Well half of it anyway. Passenger side cut but not buffed yet.

Hey gang, another small update on the build. I've got a completely rebuilt 389 sitting in it's new home now. Next is to get my tripower setup cleaned up and dropped on.

Started getting some of the interior in. I first applied some CDL tiles for sound deadening and then my insulation was glued up before starting on the headliner. For the headliners I like to lay them out in the sun and get them nice and warm before starting. Once the headliner is heated up I get it all setup on the bows and stretch it out from the front to rear so I can glue it and clip it into submission. The next day I remove the front and rear clips and stretch the headliner from side to side for glue and clipping.

This headliner came with the car and has been in a box for about 12 years! Pretty crazy.

I tackled my tripower this weekend. It was in severe need of some attention! I pulled the carbs off and rebuilt them and then media blasted my intake manifold. I sprayed the intake pontiac blue and the carb bases black and then put the setup back together. These tripowers are a real piece of artwork for sure.

More work done this weekend. The engine bay is near complete now and the dash is just about complete as well. I'm hoping I can fire it up this weekend if I get the transmission installed.
