    i decided against using the vert doors i fixed and bought a mint set that are perfect here is one of them.

    [​IMG]



    i picked these up at a swap meet and i plan on installing these in the doorpanel recessed in mdf board and where the map pockets would be normally.i picked up a mint set of black door panels but of course i won't be using the map pockets.

    here is what i did do this week in my spare time for my radio and shifter

    i started by making a pattern out of cardboard
    [​IMG]

    spent hours with a file ,the blue dye was used to get accurate lines before cutting.

    and the finished product

    and with the radio

    I love my Bilstein shocks & struts.

    Radio bezel looks great. Did you consider making it a one-piece design? It'd flow so smoothly.

    well its been awhile since i updated this and i had planned on working on it all winter but my basement had alot of mold and it took precedence.i did manage to get the car back on all fours albeit minus brakes ,fuel lines and brake lines.i installed eibach pro springs and tokico shocks all the way around but not before i painted them all red.

    i welded up the t-top brace to the roof and finished it with metal based bondo and then epoxy primered it the t-top trim piece goes over it

    i found the hood i always wanted locally but it had hood pins cut into it i repaired it and will have to finish it.i plan on doing something underneath to stop it from flying open on me.
