It seems lots of love going in this car... great effort... it will definitely look brand new in the end...
BTW from where you got these brand new spares (like the rear bumper...)

Due to workshop space issues stopped for a while on the project, will pick up the welding soon.

In meantime at home did some lathing of my own velocity stacks. Got the aluminum billet material from a metal scrap yard.

Yes exactly! Why is rust allways scaring away?

On the other hand: it is rather time consuming this body work and you need space, some skills, and the tools. (or the $$$) :mrgreen:

I like your DIY work. Your radio has me thinking. I may have to find another one in the parts yard.
