    Turbine bronze is such a great color. It will be a real beauty when you are done.

    Interesting project car. Love the Turbine Bronze color. Reminds me a lot of CBarge's Newport BoaB project. Please keep us updated on the progress.:thumbsup:

    Yes I watched it for several years too and finally asked him his bottom dollar and he came down a good bit on it.

    You have a nice ride there!! Im the third owner on mine. Lucked into it from a fellow employee for $250 in 1998. Bought a four door for parts and stripped it. It was rust free until my friend got hit in the rear and a battery in the trunk busted and the acid ate out the rear quarters over the few years it sat parked. Thing drives great and plenty of power in the 383.
    Finally got it into a body shop to finish. Now its just finding nice small parts to make it really nice

    He never budged every time I asked.
    But I found the one on my car for 75 bux. It came with the back half of the car so like you drilled out the spot welds....lotta work.
    I glued my panel in to avoid ant warpage and the outside panel is not structural.
