Looks good (and so much farther along than mine). Will this be the year it hits the road again?

I put the rear bumper on Now depressed because I had to take the car out of the shop and put it in storage for a while. I'll be putting a rocker panel and cab corner on a chevy pickup this weekend and when that's done I get the joy of putting a rocker and both rear quarter panel on a 67 Pontiac lemans. the good thing is I've got the roof hood fenders and doors primed been waiting for the guy to get the parts and get them to me for about 2yrs now

In the pictures that show the door hinge area there's white conduit for wiring that runs into the door (I'm assuming for speakers and possibly power windows). Was that and the holes original to the car or did you add those?
