Well Guys and gals I'm going to make you wait just a little longer. I am getting her ready for a 4th of July event in Middleton, It will start with breakfast at 6;30 till 8;30 AM they will be things going on all day plus 2 parades. Lots of venders and things to do.

I have to clean her up good and put my street tires on her. Race tires have passed the safety zone.

Will have some pictures later today, It looks great and the color match was perfect.

Only thing he didn't fill in the 57 letter holes and I cannot find the letters Hee! Hee!

I am just taking a Lemonade break and back to work.

Went to the WarHawk this morning, Got to Shake hands with a Air Force General, He put in 26 years and was only about 50 years old . Smile

Yea Carlos I didn't want the letters but he didn't fill the holes so I am forced to put them on. I guess I don't really have to because the holes are really small Smile

Yea Crisy, never cost me a lot on Labor but materials cost a bunch, Base Paint was close to 250 a quart by the time I bought the primer with catalist clear and catilist and everything it was close to 400, but Isrial only charged me 160 Labor and that included somje polishing compound when he cut and buffed it. I am so amazed the color match, One was put on 15 years ago and both looks exactly the same. Main thing RedSled is never out in the weather or Sun for any length of time, Sun is harder on a car then winter weather. Smile

Your right Bob. If I had known how much my car would cost in parts, I may not have bought it and I would have missed out on a lot of fun. Very Happy

Crisy, Just think how many life time friends you have made me included Smile Nobody would or car people like the CCC wouldn't know how gosh darn talented you were and you are doing something you love, You have the most respect from every member in the club . Now what else is better then Building your Christine, Just remember one day not to far away you will be able to crank her up and take her to the Car Show and then you will sit back and say Look what I did with my hands with the help of some loyal friends minds and send you pictures of how to do things. We may put a lot of monhey in our toys but just think what she will be worth when you are done and all the fun you had making her. Smile

Looks like they did a super job on the hood. I had a 58 that i put a superstock hoodscoop on. I'm thinking about doing the same with my current 58. So is the STR intake stock or has the inside been modified to Mopar specs?

The intake is stock, no alteration on the Inside, It is hard to find one that is not cut or altered for a certain engine. It works good the way it is and I do not want to alter it; May do it more harm then good. Smile
