Looks great.

Coming along nicely, Lookin great. It wouldn't be the same without some sort dilemma when restoring cars, just got to get past and keep on going with it. That first firing up of the engine will put a huge smile on your dial that'll last for days. Keep up the great work.
Your car looks better than new under the hood, excellent work inside and out.

Very, very nice! This is the stage that is the most rewarding and the most fun!
That looks stunning! Looking forward to the end result! Please post more photo's. It is really nice to see how the car is getting back to new! What shock absorbers are you installing? I'm thinking about Bilstein shocks for mine but haven't made up my mind yet. Did you end up installing the sub frames on your convertible? I've read on a different thread that you were considering this.

Very, very nice job! It is looking really good and you are making steady progress. Keep it up leaves will be popping on the trees before you know it.
