 Thanks,this was my first and last major project, finished in 2003. I had fun but it was a long process and I didn't want to ever repeat it. I just learned bodyworking through trial and error doing small things first like qtr. panel replacement,dent repair and painting.

Awesome looking car, great job. Interesting color combination with the white top, black hood, red body and tan interior.
