Boy you came out very well on that Bird! Looks like a great keeper or money maker.

Brother just picked up a '73 LT/RS. It went in for a paint job 20 some yrs ago and the guy had to pull it out of bodyshop jail. Been sitting ever since.

Around here we call it TURD ROW , where a car gets pushed to the sidelines in a body shop , as everything else takes precedence over your car.

Problem soon becomes time and it just sits there , the more the body shop looks at it , the LESS THEY WANT TO TOUCH IT.

Best thing when that starts happening is quickly remove the car and find another place and they start same nonsense, take it out right away.

Yesterday I went over to tool and die shop full of CNC machines and retrieved my 1/4" thick aluminum firewall panel for my 35 touring and a pair of samples of Wilwood/jaguar disc brake caliper adaptors I wanted 25 pair of made.  Basically ran into the TURD ROW with firewall and calipers adaptors just sitting there for 4 weeks.

Enough bye bye clowns.

Will do it myself starting with Forstner bit, large drill bit and a zip cutter to cut long slots in the aluminum , all the way thru for different look.   Will put thin brass sheet on back side instead of the milled slots 1/8" deep.
