    I don't know what attracts bugs to the most visible spot on any project...

    Looking great!

    Especially when I spent so much time closing off the garage with walls, plastic and filters. Must have looked like a great big yellow light bulb to the bug. Just getting tired of screwing things up and having to resand this thing so many times. Sooner or later though I am going to be finished with the paint. Someone asked me last year if I was going to have it on the road by spring. Well, not last spring and probably not this spring. Still shooting for summer I guess.

    This post is getting large so I will not apply any other updates and will start a new one after this. Just wanted to share that I finally got the body section of my car all polished out. I think it looks OK for a newby painter and I still need to polish out the dash and a few other parts. See you Wednesday if the good Lord is willing. Larry

    You could use the blog feature of the site for this stuff. That's why it's there. It's a great place for long term projects.

    Ah... you can go a couple more pages without worry. The forum doesn't care and I think it's best to keep it all in one spot. I think my interior thread went 3 or 4 pages deep and I'll continue it there when I ever get back to finishing it up in there.

    Looking sweet though. I see a June tech day coming up...

    Mentioning a tech day makes me wonder about something. Since it's been over 2 years ago that I dismantled my little project I am wondering if there is a good process to follow for reconstruction.
    Since the engine and transmission are in the car and they haven't been fired/tested I see the next step in the build process being electrical installations. Then the dash equipment, steering wheel, then interior so I can sit in the thing and fire up the engine. After that new exhaust. Then rubber seals, glass,etc.
    Is that a decent chronological order or do you all have preferred processes that you've followed. Thanks for any input. Larry

    Seems pretty logical to me. Obviously you don't want to install things just to have to remove them again, so think things through as to whether putting something in/on is going to make it hard to put something else in/on. Window weatherstripping is one place it is easy to put something on and then have to pull it. Don't put the belt-line fuzzies in until the glass is in the door, for instance. That stuff is really only made to be put in, not taken out and reused. The clips like to pull out of the parts really easy.

    You could also fire it up with minimal wiring, if you wanted to. If it's a first run though, you really want to make sure it can run a little bit if it's got conventional cam/lifters. If roller rockers, not quite so important. But to have radiator hooked up and something for exhaust would be good.

    I bought a x-pipe kit from Summit really cheap and only needed to make a couple runs to the muffler shop and I put in a decent exhaust in my pickup that way. Might be worth considering so you can drive it to get what you really want to get - or live with it for a little while.

    Thanks for the info. I want to do the initial start up with open headers just to see if I can get the Mill Creek yuppie crowd to go nuts. Then I will either trailer it down to Snohomish to get the exhaust finished or get real risky and drive it down there with the headers blaring. Some Saturday in the next couple of months it will get loud around here. I hope. Long slow way to go. Keepin on keepin on.

    Looks good from here Larry. Almost looks like you should be able to drive it away. You're gonna have a lot of fun when you do... that I can foresee. What a great color too. How can anyone not want one of those... when they look like that.

    First I have a question. I am getting ready to install the front wing window frames and windows but it looks like from what I can gather out of the book that I should install the door handles and mechanisms first??? A couple of pictures of where I am now. Just installed the left hand trim and rear trim and trunk lock.
