    Ever think your project was never going to get done? I'm there. At any rate, it's now looking like summer 2015 for mine. Long story, but body won't be ready for interior guy by December and he only does interiors December through March. In short.....I'm SOL. That said, the body is coming. The floor turned out to be more rusted than anticipated but fortunately I was able to get th floor out of my donor car I got out of Kansas.

    We took the right rear quarter and outer wheel house in total from that car, had to piece the driver rear quarter and wheel house due to a weird butcher job already done to the donor. The taillight panel moved over well also. Quick question for Craig or anyone, is the dash orange the same as the body orange? It looks like there might be some sort of metal flake in the dash but I could be seeing things. At any rate, the job is coming, we are priming this weekend, painting the engine bay soon, will drop the motor and tranny back in, but I won't be driving it for some time!

    I believe the orange on the inside is a different color than the orange on the outside. Sorry....I do not know what the code would be for the interior.
