  1. Thankfully my wife supports this project and is willing to check in on the status of paint and such. Still no word on when my ship will return.
  2. looks good, I'll be hitting you guys up for some parts in the next few weeks
  3. Passenger Door

    I just moved from San Diego too
  4. Paint Progress

    I may be out to sea, but my wife was kind enough to stop by the shop and send some progress photos. Things are coming along nicely. Still a lot of color sanding to do.
  5. Passenger Door

    Have a spare passenger door that I was going to use for my 76. Some rust near the bottom but solid. Comes with glass. Make me an offer. I'm out of town (Navy support to Hurricane relief efforts), but can put you in contact with my wife to get the door out of the garage
  6. What's in your tool box?

    I feel cheated as well
  7. What's in your tool box?

    What is covering the side of your trunk?
  8. What did you do to your 2002 today !

    Don't worry, I'm doing my best to keep it non-authentic
  9. Q/R steering box

    Anyone know the paint code color for that orange? Mine needs a refresh now that I'm looking at it
  10. Pulled the sunroof panel out into the sun to check it out and I couldn't be happier with the paint choice. There are still many color/wet sandings to go and a few buff sessions, but the picture can't show how awesome it looks.
  11. Q/R steering box

    I actually had a guy offer me $1000 for mine one time, plus he'd find a replacement and install it.
  12. What did you do to your 2002 today !

    Got some updated photos from my wife with the status of my car. Good to see progress being made while I'm out to sea helping with Irma relief efforts
  13. Taking Flight

    With the engine out of the car and the panels off and prepped for paint - what remained went up on the lift to take care of the previously noted body issues. The engine got partially disassembled for ceramic coating and paint And all of the panels started getting some color Things were coming along nicely
  14. Growth Work

    Thanks - that's the plan. I've got a ton of pictures from the work so far but they're on my phone and I can't get to them for a few weeks so I'm making updates with the pictures I managed to send via email.
  15. What did you do to your 2002 today !

    Its a custom SPI paint
