I've been painting the inside of my hood and side panels, the radiator shell is done just needs a little color sanding and some buffing The car is in the booth , I finished masking it today hoping to shoot it tomorrow if we get a warm day. I'll post some pictures when I'm done, This winter the assembly will be done.

I'm going to try to at least look at the coupe once a month. Maybe I should name him Christine in hopes of a self build. But...I sure would hate to confuse him into thinking he was transgender. ;D Maybe late winter I might get back to it.

Ed your on the short strokes. You should be done by spring if all goes well.  :)

Dang Senior31, everybody but me seems to be finding old Camaro/Firebirds.  :(

When someone refers to their car as "she" or "her" I walk away. Kind of creepy to me. I have enough problems with females I don't even want to think about driving one. It's just not safe.  ::)
I have to pull my roadster stuff out of the shop to put the '70 Blazer in. I need to get it back on the road before the road gets too bad for my '53 and the '68 flatbed. Maybe a month if I'm lucky. When the roadster goes back in I want to make some real progress this Winter.

The plan is to install FITech fuel injection.  That will mean running new fuel line and return line.  I also want to get the outside door handles hooked up and working the bear claw latches.  Maybe if time allows start to fit the top on the car.

Im gonna knock out the wood but first before I imobilize the Pontiac. I may have to do the jeeps fuel pump. Im gonna cut an access hole in the floor.
Some jeep engineer gave me the measurements and how to seal it up afterwards.
I vowed to never drop a tank ever again a few years ago.
Shoot, it may be sooner. It had a weird stumble today. 180,000 miles, yeah time to change it.

Munch,
I've talked to a few people that installed it and all were very happy.  Glad it's worked out for you.  I'll make it easier for when my daughter drives it.

Munch,
Did you use the external pump or the pump located in your fuel tank?  If you used the external one I was wondering how loud it was.

I am seriously considering selling the 24 dodge  as a project, so I can get back on my 55 chevy. What do you guys think???

There are more '55 Chevys than '24 Dodges. That said I sold a '55 Chevy two door post gasser project several years ago and I wish I hadn't.
