Quite a bit done this week, new bumper and hood should be delivered tomorrow, new Trunk lid already in 2k and first blocking, both front fenders blocked and in 2k, the donor car driver rear 1/4 cut out so we can get it ready for the red car. I was joking with Kevin that the only thing that will be an original body part on the car is the passenger rear 1/4 panel and said it's damn nice of us to save that panel.

So it's been a while since I updated this, there hasn't been a ton of stuff to show off as it looks like a lot of the same. Mostly getting the doors and fenders K&K perfect and straight, the doors I think are as straight as they are going to get and the fenders are almost there. The roof is pretty much ready for the T-Top frame and it was disassembled and sent for powder coating. Once Kevin has time to go start to finish on either the roof or the fender those will happen as he will need to complete it in one go once he starts it.

Gonna have to fix some rust on door mount points too.

New pics of the fenders this afternoon, I think we are done with door skins and front fenders as far as prime and block now.

Now I see why @Noobz347 likes to make fun of me for the primer consumption. I sprayed
3 gallons of primer just today. But got pieces from 3 different cars Slathered in it

dangit... I wish I had weighed my car before sending it to you so I could see the difference after it gets 400# of primer on it.

Today was a big milestone, no going back now! Also I was able to order the MM K member kit as it was finally in stock at LMR and I wasn't sure how long it would take to order direct from MM.
