I remember seeing quarter panels in a magazine but I think they were for 60s Mustangs. I don't remember but I will look through them later today for you to double check.

Those rims draw all sorts of attention, and I hate them.

They came with the car... they look like 80's BMW rims... no idea their origin.

Joy to the world we have paint.

I expect the engine back next week from the rebuild. It'll go in and then we'll clean up all the details like bolts.

For now, the painted engine bay. The red is San Marino Red.

Onto the roof and doors.

Just the angle... and 24mm. It's definitely straight. I had no space to square up on the car.

Good work, love it man... Dont lose focus, love to read build threads. I am going to start stripping my engine bay after I get mine running right. The previous owner of my car tore the engine out and totally disregarded the "Being Careful" method... Scratched and dented everything in the engine bay. Freakin drives me nuts everytime I look at my engine bay. Keep up the good work!!
