Re: Partially prepped shell

Brian has a good point. Your already there so its not that much more work to redo the quarters to make sure its right. Body work already started by the PO is a hard once since you just dont know what was done. I choose not to go down to metal on mine based on budget and my overall goal of the build ...

Re: Wanted - 1968 Standard Door Panels

interested on the outcome, 600bucks is not too bad considering. I have not started to work on my door panels, hopefully I dont have the same issue with them tearing once trying to get the belt lines off!

Re: Emblem restoration

mine where not quite as bad and I was simply able to a good plastic buffing kit. I did not have any yellowing however. Also did my taillights and they came out looking new.

Re: New product 1968 Std dash panel

I've been contemplating doing something very similar to that with my dash. If I do it, I plan on patterning it after my Bullitt. Here's a picture of a section of it's dash: The circles are approximately 1/2" in diameter. Thats a much better look then the larger turns. I forgot about the bullets hav...

Re: My slow-build '67

Man, I watched that West Coast video on installing the electric kit for the hideaway doors. I think I remember the video saying it took them about 2-3 hours to complete. It took me a month! Ha.

Mine look alot like those pictured here so Im in the same boat. I like the fiberglass repair kit trick and will have to try that if I get to that point in my interior before the reproductions come out.

Here's what it looks like: https://farm1.staticflickr.com/899/40721280535_b87830601e_c.jpg As you can see, it's not perfect. I don't think it turned out too bad, though. My thought is that it's easy to ...
