    Well, since it has been a while since I have posted any updates I thought I would share a couple of videos I have put together for the progress I have made on my 69 Imperial.

    I hope you enjoy them and I plan on adding more as I make more progress.

    Fuselage cars often have bad quarters that have been worked over.
    The pics of your car in the first video show what they should look like. You can tell this car is original. Especially how the skirts fit. There are multiple curves and you can see how they properly tuck in and under the car.

    It's a great photo essay for prospective Fusey owners of "the look" they are after for the rear quarters.

    I grew up in the rust belt and a sure fire signal that the quarters had be butchered was a car that no longer had fender skirts, because they could not get them to fit right anymore.

    Congratulations on saving this beauty.

    I really appreciate all of the kind words from everyone. I have to admit I enjoy every time I work on her and i still have more to go. But, I am starting to see light at the end of the tunnel for getting this BBW (big beautiful woman) back on the road.
    Like I said when I first joined this group, I needed help with the C-Body Sickness or addiction (whichever you prefer).
    I can't wait until I get to take my first real drive when I get her road worthy. I realize there will be other problems that come up but I feel like a little kid that can't control himself. The car has been like therapy for me, makes me feel like I did with my first car. I will post more updates as I have them.
    In the meantime let's keep working on keeping these works of art on the road.
