We just found out less than a week ago that my Dads surgery for a Heart valve replacement has been scheduled for Tuesday. I am driving him to Boston on Monday and will be staying with him.
So... I decided to restore the Custom 10XL as a surprise, I have been working on it the last few days non stop, today alone I spent 17 hours on it.
I was just going to get this one mechanically sound, but I just decided to do this so he has something to look forward to when he gets out of the Hospital. I am kind of worried because he also has two arteries completely blocked and they decided against taking care of them at this time, he had a 5 way bypass already about 10 or so years ago. So I am a little worried. Anyway I don't want to go on about that right now.
So here is the progress thus far, my goal is to be done by Saturday night.
I couldn't get the steering wheel off and didn't have time to mess around with it ( tight schedule) It made it a little more involved not having the dash off.
a couple shots after all the paper and tape was removed.
I decided to do the rims two tone, I really like the look! I also did the paint a little different I decided to go off white in stead of the typical gloss, I also went with a brighter yellow as it is one of my Dads favorite colors.And if you noticed I stole the tires from my MF12 and put them on this, the others just looked so small.
I didn't get any pictures before I came in a little while ago, but The grill is done and I painted the dash. I am hoping all the paint will be dry enough by Saturday so I can assemble it. Then I'll trailer it to Dads on Sunday morning.
Ok I must go get cleaned up, have a lot to do tomorrow ( later today). Thanks for looking and I'll update later.
