    I have a 79 that I am building from the ground up, mini-tubbed, restomod style. I checked out a few of your pic links, we have the same taste in cars!

    Here's a pic from last fall when I picked it up from Advanced Blasting in CR.

    That looks like my wifes 79 about 3 years ago,(yeah, we have two 79's, I think it's a disease). I picked it up in '08 and finally finished it in '12. Worked on it almost every free minute I had. Turned out good though. Just about like a brand new '79. Funny thing is , I tried almost every year since I got mine in 05 to get it in the NastyZ calender without any luck, but the first year I submit hers, it gets in.
    If you need any help on the car, let me know, I love wrenching on them. Been helping a friend at work off and on with his '80.
    Oh, and advanced blasting does good work. I had them strip the urethane pieces on my wifes car and they turned out great.

    Advanced Blasting stripped the tub, doors, fenders, rad. support, and sub frame. I need to drop off the decklid I just picked up along with a few sets of tail light housings. I wondered about how they would do with the urethane parts. I do not have the bumpers, need to find some solid GM cores.

    We'll have to meet up sometime, check out each others projects. Thank you for the offer to help wrench, I extend the same to you. I love working on these cars as well, this is my second 79 (the first was a Z28). I noticed in your profile you list manufacturing as your profession, what is it that you do? I design plastic injection molds, and started it all way back in the day when I served an apprenticeship as a mold maker.

    I try to make it to the local shows when I can, so maybe I'll see you at one.
    As far as work, I am a maintenance mechanic at one of the Cargill plants here in town. Been there for 13 years, been in maint. for the last 5+. It keeps me busy. Gives me access to some great tools too.:)
