    Now that it's complete, I figured that I'd condense the photos revolving around the build into one thread, minus all of the comments that went into the build, So as opposed to a build thread,....consider it a "Built" thread.

    There is a current deal in the works for 18k. Nothing solid yet other than expressed interest.

    You guys were there lending support from the get go. I just wanted to say, thanks to all of you for the input and well wishes.
    I just added several pictures that went back from inception, and saw that almost everyone of you were there from the get go.
    Again, thanks for the advice, it has been alot more fun sharing each day as I built this thing w/ the lot of you.

    You all made the experience so much better, I didn't even mind admitting my stupid mistakes, that I learned these valuable lessons from:

    #1. Always wear safety glasses. ( You never know when a cut off wheel is gonna explode and put your eye out kid)
    #2 Never back a project car out of the garage under it's own power until it has a way to stop it other than running it into the full body rottisserie at the end of the driveway.
    #3. When welding be mindful of changes in the way the air smells. If something smells like it's burning,...It's burning, and most of the time it's you.
    #4. Never trust a machine shop to have done everything that you assume was done, i.e., it's always that stupid little oil galley plug that'll end up being a HUGE pain in the ass to replace.
    #5 Going hand-in-hand w/ #4, wait to put the pricey synthetic oil in a fresh or newly modified engine until after you've had to clean it up off the floor of your garage. Bottom line, if your gonna dump 4.5 qts of oil out on the floor, go w/ standard crude.
    #6 If the price is too good to be true, it's Chinese.
    #7. Buddy deal paint jobs are never going to be something you're happy with.
    #8. If you put 1968 sheet metal on a non-1968 fox body,...be prepared for the select few that see a Pinto instead of a Bullitt.

    I was just remembering the car scootching off the cinder block on the jack stand while you were sanding on it...Thank goodness you didn't have a hardway lesson from that, it could've been bad!

    Edit:
    BTW- you'd better still hangout here and visit the SW even if you do sell the car... We're going to be upset if you don't.

    It's in one of the pictures I added. The car would've been OK even if the jackstand would've came off,....it was only sitting three anyway.

    They don't like me in SW,....Whole bunch of people who don't know I actually did get hit in the face w/ a 2 x 4.
