    A few pics from the paint shop.  This is the final primer.  After it dries thoroughly shop will do final block sand and then paint white

    Finally got my struts finished up......now I just need a body to attach them to.  Calipers are rebuilt, all new pads and shoes.

    Cleaned and painted the CV shafts this weekend.  I painted them with 'aluminum' spray paint which I think may be a bit too shiny.  May re-do this in flat aluminum.

    Yes, I was tempted to photoshop a grill on the front.

    Well she's finally painted. Woo-Hoo!  Guess that was done on Wednesday.  Pics are lousy because of the shade in the morning, but nice to see it finally done.  Shop will do a color sand and looks like I may be able to pick it up on Monday.  That would be awesome.  Parts are sitting in my garage, ready to install.

    Car is now home from the paint shop.  Started applying the POR-15 to the underside and wheel wells.

    Got the POR-15 finished last Tuesday. Undercoating sprayed on Thursday. Most of the fuel and brake lines on Saturday and front suspension put in yesterday.  Moving right along here.  Hope to have rear suspension in on Tuesday.  E-brake and smaller lines in on Thursday.  Then complete engine and drive train installed this coming weekend.  The more I get on the car, the more it opens up space in the garage.   Here's a few pics.

    Excellent progress!

    Thanks!  Got the engine harness tabs painted and engine harness installed.  Also painted front of radiator support the hood hinge tension rods.  Started installing glass.  My son stopped by to wash his 350Z, so it was nice to have a bit of company while doing the assembly.  Here are the latest pics.

    Made a little more progress.  Waiting now for a new headliner and vintage dash.  Looks like it will be several weeks before those come in.  Still plenty to do while I wait.

    Wow so this is what they look like new huh.. very nice 🙂

    Still a lot of work and detail to do.  unfortunately, I need to paint all the pretty gold fender bolts.  Also need to get the air cleaner powedercoated and a number of other things.  Hoping to have this up and running in a month or so.  Perhaps have it ready for JCCS if the show is on.

    JCCS is in October this year.

    Yes, looks like they will have registration info in July.  Haven't had a car there in a while so should be fun.
