This guy has worked miracles on this car. He now has the other one too. Sometime down the road this one might be for sale. That will depend on if my wife will go driving in tandem with me. But for the foreseeable future it will be my main driver.

Looks amazing. I wish I had the skill, patience and budget to do the same let alone the garage space to even try to pull it off.

Good luck with knee replacement, you will be laid up for a while, although they will get you right into rehab. A buddy of mine had both knees replaced before age 40. Mostly due to high school football injuries. The second knee operation he literally woke up during the procedure and raised up at the waist when they were pounding a anchor into his tibia, everybody in the O.R. was spooked especially him. This was 15 years ago, so I'm not sure if the procedure is still done this way.

Thanks, my second partial replacement. Last time 3 months and I was out doing stuff. Spending up to 2 hours a day on the stair machine to lose weight and prepare for it.

Going to pick up my car on Tuesday. The fenders in final primer and yes I am adding teardrops.

Still waiting to get the paint job arranged. Painter promised to get with me this week. Knee replacement is slowly healing up.

It did have but it is bolted to the frame now. It's not going anywhere.

While cleaning in the garage I found I had not cleaned up the second set of E brake linkage. Top one is the powder coated and replated set. Bottom one is the one I just did on the cheap with black and metallic brass paint.

Wow, they both look great. This project is going to look, and be, phenomenal when done!
