Thanks for the comments guys! I think the owner wants me to do more work on it next winter. Probably pull the motor, reseal and detail everything under the hood. May even do  a carb and intake swap. We will see.  He just wants to drive it this summer so I gotta get it done!!! Got front spoiler on and should have bumper on tonight. Then just hood and trunk lid and some decals.

Got some more done. Got the tops of the trunk lid and hood primed. Got the back cover of the seats swapped out. New rear view mirror installed. Adjusted front bumper a little more to my liking. Also got the Mach 1 decals installed on the fenders. But soon found out when I peeled the paper off, they were argent!! Not black like they were supposed to be. So I had to carefully scrape them off and order new ones. Hope to do more sanding Monday or Tuesday.

"Tested" isn't he word Mike!! Really want to get this thing done! But don't want to rush the final steps. I even pulled the front bumper off again and got my gaps a little better. Had to elongate the mounting holes to get it even on both sides.
The owner ordered a license plate bracket for the front since his was bent and rusty from CJ pony parts.  It showed up and was just a chunk of steel, no holes in it anywhere.  Wasn't even close to same as picture on website.  I talked to them Thursday and they had me send pics of it to them. Emailed the same guy Friday, saturday, and Monday. Nothing back from them yet. Guy said I will get right back to you. He was checking to see if all the ones on the shelf were like that. Still nothing..... I can guarantee I will not buy anything from them again. Piss poor customer service.  Bad hinge that messed up the hood was from them. The argent decal was from them..... came in a kit and all the other decals were matte black as they should be.  They are a joke in my opinion!!! The owner of the car bought a lot of stuff from them for this build. The majority of the stuff I bought for him came from Don at OMS. Cant beat the customer service and attention to detail!   Ok im done rambling....gotta get back to work on this project and get it finished so I can get the back porch built for the wife!!

Getting really close now. Got the top of the hood trunk lid and hood molding painted today. I will let it set over the weekend and then flip them and shoot the bottoms probably Monday. Just need to get them installed and wet sanded and buffed out. Get decals on and I am DONE!!!
