    Great project! Love the direction you're taking. Looks like it's reverse opening hood time, though, haha. You're definitely going to want hinges of some sort, imagine how difficult a simple thing like checking your oil at a gas station will be.

    Sparkling wiggles is a very racist video on youtube to most, but my sense of humor makes me crack up when I watch it. One of the quotes is, "Get a job, sparkling wiggles!" I modified it to get to work, sparkling wiggles... Anyway, Im excited for more pics, so post some ASAP.

    No the whole thing is painted but he wet sanded the first coat of clear on the exterior so a second set of clear could be laid after i get everything together soas soon as motor and trans are in me and him are gonna put the panels and doors back on so i can then get my last coat of clear applied and have no scratches from when we put the motor or anything in

    Are those weld in front fender aprons, or did you just fill the existing ones. If so, why didn't they fill all the little holes in the strut towers while they were at it? :shrug:

    Looks good so far. I wouldnt worry too much about those strut tower holes. Its easy to get caught up wanting your car to be perfect, but the truth is that no one's car is perfect. Keep us posted as you go!
