Any idea whether the stunning brunette also made her way to Alberta? ha ha

Congrats on buying the car. I met Merlin a couple times, and he was very close friends with a good friend of mine. He was a terrific guy... sadly, gone before his time.

Funny Jimmy
Any part I bought as an assembly or package was counted as one part. The entire NOS short block is one part. The NOS T44 hood lock kit is one part.

You're getting to the fun stuff now Paul. It looks like it's been one hell of a journey!

It looks so clean! I can see the progress with this build, I can't wait to see how it goes. Btw, I feel like the HD wheels Spinout series will add style to that classic car.

over the past 18 months the body has been transformed from a rust bucket ,to a shell and back to a body,piece by piece. My body guy has painstakingly duplicated dimples, changed round nuts to square ones and rebuilt parts to their factory correct locations. Here is a series of photos

















panels were brought to bare metal,ecoated,proved blocked and ready for install. The copper is weld through primer.
