    its been a long time since i have update this thread but all in all she is running well, new carb, new starter, new alt, somewhat fresh paint, new suspension and brakes. still need to work on interior though but she is road worthy now. pics coming in this post

    Good job! It is looking nice. Sounds like you are on your way to getting that car sorted out. Are you fixing stuff yourself, getting help, or a combination of the two? Working on cars has become a lost art, but it is such a valuable skill. kudos to you.

    Looks good on the outside, and I love projects which get done in stages.

    a little bit of both, the stuff i can get done myself I make sure i do it. but the bigger projects im using a mechanic to make sure the work has guaruntees and what not. she is coming along thank you, its been a pain in the ass

    thinking of selling this though, i havent had the time to keep going or even drive it around. she runs great, looks good outside, and i have the parts for the interior too
