    For an almost 40 year old car, I'd say it looks great!If that car was here in kentucky the floor pan would be non existent. Quarters here on these old steel cars will start to rust faster than you can wax. Looks like you might have some solid metal left to work with.

    The warrior gets a new look


    Well it's time!! Taking the warrior to the body shop in the morning!! Ordered finders, deck lid, quarters for both sides. Still need to see how back the truck floor is,so I no what to order for it.

    Put half down and the rest after. Also I can go help if I want. That way I can watch and learn!! Plus I might beable to work on it,when there busy on insurance work.

    Told me it would take 6 to 8 months Man that's along time.

    Were going with hugger orange w/ one bold stripe. Silver is what were thing about. The same silver as our truck is painted. I'm planing on having all chrome powder coated by my buddy. Black chrome or maybe see if we could match the silver with the powder??

    Think I'll have lots of time to make my mind up on that!! Will take lots of pic's! I already wish it was done!!! lol!

    I'm also going to go ahead and do the inside as well,seats carpet etc.

    Enough rambling! I hope it dosen't turn into a night mare!!!

    Keep your fingers crossed for us !!! lol!!!;)

    Yes I did Laine. I'm sure once the quarters come off we may need to replace inner wheel wells.
    At least I have the extra cash set a side for the OH MANS!!!

    Will try an keep the pictures coming maybe that will help the time go by faster! :bowtie:
