    Let me start off by saying the first few pictures actually made me sick to my stomach. A loss like that is really sad. I'd murder the guys that did that if I ever found them. I'm glad you held on to it until you could do it over. Now when I was a kid there was a show called the 6 million dollar man... BETTER, STRONGER, FASTER! Great job.

    Lots of progress since coming back from paint. The painstaking process of re-wiring and modifiying the entire cars electronic wiring is nearly complete.
    A new windshield was in order, so we took care of that.

    All the hard work seems to be paying off looks to be quite the build. Can't wait to see it complete.

    Looking great Fred, coming along very nicely, sure your keeping George busy. The guys at Century did a great job on the paint.

    More work on restoring the window moldings and trim pieces.
    Tore off the old back window tint, and removed the old glue ( about as much fun as a trip to the dentist!) Also clay bar treated the inside and out, which removed years of hard water spots and debris.
    IMG_2214.jpg
    Passenger side process was the same as previous, however we decided the inner portion of the B pillar needed some TLC in black.

    Done. Drivers side got the same treatment shortly after

    Some salvage yard serching rewarded us with door hrnesses, a complete steering column, and a couple of other goodies. Spare steeering wheel is being sent out for restoration & wrap.

    The trim work is about 90% complete. We may replace the door belt moldings, or try a different base coat/top coat method, as the originals were in pretty rough shape.
    New door lock actuators, lock cylinders, and door handles installed. The factory pop rivets them in, but this method can lead to the handle contacting the door skin. We bolted them in instead. Straight and clean.
    IMG_2276.jpg
    IMG_2275.jpg
    Finished. Also LRS hooked us up with all new door seals, run channels, and weatherstripping. Doors work better than NEW!

    After some thought, we dcided to shoot the license plate and tailight panel in black.

    Now to the Headlights. Long story short, the hardware assemblies needed some modifications and drilling, but GEO got everything in, weather sealed, and better than new.

    Had to drill for proper depth and diameter

    Still some aligning to do, but after the headlight bulbs come in.

    Great job so far. Did you put anything under those fender panels under the hood? I would have at least sprayed and sealed the rust spots or something before putting those in. The idea of moisture getting under those and rotting out gives me a sick feeling.

    Time to overhaul the HVAC system. Out comes the heater box/blower motor assembly

    We were talking door handles. OE are riveted on, and you can see here how this method puts the handle too close to the door skin, leading to contact. GEO installed the new set with bolts.

    I've found installing the handles with bolt over rivets is the way to go drilling out rivets sucks but bolt take no time at all

    Hmm,.. Very nice project. I'd guess that this is Georges' build and you're paying him to do it for you then?
