That is great news that you have not given up. Myself and all late model 311s are rooting for you.

im new here but wondering if you are still doing dashes? I have a 68, 2000 dash that needs to be done. It has been sitting for 30 years now. Just retired so i have some time on my hands and still mobile enough to do a lot on my own. the dash might be over my head.

I did this and it's held up for the past 5 months sitting outside but we'll see after the summer heat. I think I should've put a thicker coat of body filler, that may be on the next restoration.
