Looking back at the early day's of my J Code Vert restoration...
#1
A couple video's of the start on the Pastel Blue J Code restoration. Disregard some of the commentary, as I was to learn, some of what I mentioned was not accurate when the car made it's way to the body and paint restoration shop (regarding how some of the damage occurred...). The third video is the car running in the garage basically...completed. Looking back, you wonder how you ever got yourself into such a project. For those in the midst, reflecting back to these early day's makes it all worthwhile when they are finally finished. Keep at 'er!

Cool man, your car turned out really nice! Now for the spare tire trunk bracket can you tell me how many inches (measured from the tail light panel) does this bracket mount? Mine was removed a long time ago, I have the bracket but in order to weld it back in I need the exact location where it goes. Thanks!

Is this the car of the web site user with the name Pastel Blue, or are you just referring to the color of the car? What ever happened to that guy? I must have missed whatever drama occurred. I don't believe we ever saw the end of that project.

It doesn't matter what happened in the past. It should always be about the cars. This Pastel Blue vert is a true masterpiece and 7173Vert should be commended for an excellent restoration of this rare car..... My hat is off to him !!!
Thanks, Jay

That guy is still kicking... and this is that car as other's here have noted. Not so much as being drama as being my need to focus on completing the car at that time, as I believed it should be done; without the "drama" some choose bring into their comments. I believe if someone is willing to post the progress of their car's here, what ever that may be, respect is shown at all times. That's it. Cheers
