Update
I hope to have the firewall done by next weekend and pick a color. I need to get the engine back in this dog.

Here are some more body work pictures. Tailgate gaps are tightened up. Door and rocker gaps are tightened up too. Got some door lock rotor repair kits form Bernbaum. They are nice. Pictures of the air conditioner unit tucked up in the roof.

Lotta work, but the gaps are looking really good. This one has come a long way since you started.

Don, I'm not a big fan of graphics. I like clean and simple. The right color of window tint with the gray wheels will be striking and low maintenance at the same time. You have just created the pro touring station wagon. Take all your friends autocrossing at the same time. Smile

I like the colors Don, but I too am not a big fan of graphics on early cars ...

The colors go well with the wheels / windows / etc ..It's just that big word stuck on the door ....I dunno.....

I'm with KB on the simple & clean look .....But boy , that car looks 900% different than when it first showed up ....Nice Work ...
