Does that mean you will go for this look?...
Would be cool af but no, I'll stick to the M9 Deep Plum ;)
You just keep amazing us with all of the work that is being done on your car!
I do not think I can think of one word to describe the level, or the amount of work you are having done on this car, it blows my mind.
I would guess you have had more recommendations and ideas of what you should do along the way than you care to remember. But, I do wish you could find the time at some point to make a video or put all of the pictures together to show all of the work and progress in a single format.
I am glad to see the world still has a few craftsmen that care about their work and keeping the craft alive as shown by the amazing work being done on your Imperial!
Thanks for your appreciation I'm happy you like it!
I can't say I have a lot of people trying to tell me what I should do, other then a lot of people who try to tell me what not to do. This has to be original, you can't do that to an Imperial... and so on. ;)
They all get the same answer: Do with your car what you like to do and I do the same with my car.
It's my time, effort and money and I'm doing things exactly like I want to. I don't care if other like it or not.
Seriously, I am very honored to have been lucky enough to witness the the birth of this endeavor. And I don't look at it as a "restoration" anymore. I'm watching a documentary while it's being made.
And that is how it should be.
... BUT, you're doing a wonderful, if extravagant thing to this car.
The only reason I felt the need to toss the red x out there, is all the dumb stuff so many folks seem to think they have to do. I do hate most tire and wheel "upgrades", but can live with most... except so many of them are done by idiots who are ignoring other real problems with a car. I don't feel the world needs another flame job, but when I give the riding lawn mower a need coat of paint, I won't swear I wouldn't do it. Why does a C need a muscle car wannabe stripe,color,hood scoop,etc?
Sorry for the X Peter, I completely agree in Julian's case... and ultimately know the owner has the right, but I wouldn't want anyone to get confused into thinking that I'd even consider endorsing their half baked modification plans... Look at how many poorly executed brake modifications,repairs and "upgrades" have floated through here due to lack of knowledge, cheapness and silly notions that what they are bolting on will be better than a fully functioning stock system.
Next part is done. The passenger door was really really bad due to an accident in the past of the car.
My Bodyman told me first that it doesn't make sense to repair it but he gave it a try anyway. And it worked out great in the end!
Ant the after pictures. Again he did amazing work!
Can't be many more parts to be sorted now Julian, whatever you pay your body man is well worth it for such excellence.
You'll have to open a bed and breakfast place to house all the visitors wanting to see your car. Shame I'm so far away.
Keep up the great work.
Is this shop an old WW II underground bunker??
Conditions look pretty harsh in there.
He showed some photos a while back, I think the shop predates WWII by a good bit. (Can't remember the details that were posted and too lazy to look it up.)
Besides the Body, there are still a lot of parts left. Next are the fenders, the fender skirts, dent removal on the hood and fitting the trunk Lock ornament onto the 72 donor trunk lid.
It's an old barn that even predates WW I ;)
One more stack of galvanized parts is done. Slowly but surely I'm out of "old" parts.
Good luck putting it all back together...
That's gonna be the best part!
The Passenger Side Fender was pretty rusty...
But my Bodyman did a great job once again. The Passenger Side Fender is done and looks great!
