Im going to come down and meet you soon ,Im back to driving now.
I've been using a place in Cartersville called Steel Products. They do a great job. I only have the frame and a few pieces left to do. They have a 30 foot oven that will fit my frame. Where is your guy?
I used Doug @ American Supercars to do the ceramic coating.
I may be interested in the windows & gaskets. I am going to refurbish my hardtop, but haven't even started thinking about what i may need.
Hope to see you soon.

Re: 72 Jimmy "Colonel Mustard"

Received the wiring harness and programmed ECM from Speartech earlier than expected. Looks like they did a really nice job building it. I have a pretty big pile of parts. Now i need something to install them on. Should be getting the body and frame back next week.

Re: 72 Jimmy "Colonel Mustard"

After seeing it back together and prepped....is there a little bit of you that kind of wants to go triple black on it? Because I know there's a part of me that'd like to see it ..Great work.

Thank you. Funny you say that, because it's something i've been thinking about.The pictures look interesting in all black. I have two black vehicles already and I think I'll end up with Ochre/White. I always wanted a red one, but we just painted my sons 86 K-5 red. It's gonna be black for a while till I save up the $ for paint.

Re: 72 Jimmy "Colonel Mustard"

Nice. I like the looks of the red square body in the background also.

Don't know if I care for the Ford towing it though !!

I knew I should have photoshopped the Ford out of there The red one is an 86 that my son and I bought together when he was 12. We did a frame off on it. He turned 16 in April and has been driving the heck out of it.

this is the day we bought it.

That thing looks awesome. I bet your son loves it.

Those types of projects are the best. Some of my fondest memories with my Dad were wrenching on some summer vehicle under the car port.
