This thread might be on hold for a little while............After all this time, seems the oval will be headed back to the paint shop. I rolled it out into the sunlight the other day and what a debacle. Every panel had thin spots in the paint, feathering, holidays and in some cases almost no paint at all. To say the least, I am unhappy with this nonsense. I have tried to stay positive, since the guy doing it, said he will take care of it. I hope so! I looks so nice in the pics, but then again.....I guess most cars do, fresh out of the body shop. Oh Well, maybe we'll finish it by the end of 2012. I do appreciate all of the awesome comments and support, but I did not post on this issue sooner because I did not want to seem like I was "venting". However, I think I still might be, though.

Alright the car goes back to the paint shop (for a total wetsand, repaint and clearcoat) Monday. I also purchased a rebuilt 1600 with dual 40's and spin on filter set-up. He also had a brand new, in the box freeway flier from rancho, so I had to have that too. I will check the clearance of my front tires (135's) on Sunday night, thanks to Muddobber. Once I get the car back, this time, I will begin the building process. Anybody bored and looking for something to do, give me a call. This has to get fun soon. Very Happy

OK, it will be an entirely "NEW" harness, front to rear. K1 has had some experience with this......so I'm hoping I can lure him down here for a day, as well. I'll keep you posted.

Car went back to the paint shop yesterday. He assured me that he knew what the problem was, and will take care of everything. Now I cant wait to get it back again. I also bought all new WCM fender beading to replace that nightmare of folded looking beading! I just placed a big order with this company royrogersparts.com, I would recommend taking a look if you need stuff. He is offering FREE SHIPPING, right now on all orders over $50.00. So, I ordered a new tow bar for $79.00 shipped and about 20 other items. Sweet, I like "FREE". Anyway, wish me luck on the paint job. I'll update soon.
