Thanks guys! It's coming along, though slowly. I have lots of parts ready for color. Then I have yet to get the wheels and various small parts ready. I need to get the wheel weights ready for their coat of Orange. Concentrating on everything that will get the Orange, as Steve wants to do all that at once. It takes a while, especially anything that I am putting Rust Reformer on as it has to set for 24 hours before top coating. And finding places to put it all. Running out of space!

I wished I could be that "slow" ,  3 1/2 yrs into a Sears restore, it was half done when I bought it  :wallbanging:

 A few pics of what I'm doing lately! I got the dash hardware fixed up.

Pulled the exhaust manifolds off and put some 1200° paint on them.

Washed the engine down with Purple Power! Put a new oil filter on it, the oil is new.

Satin Black. I just washed the block and redid the tins. The block could use some paint, but want to run it more before that. I've only had it running for about 10 minutes. I do have a set of head gaskets if they are needed.

Sorry, Daniel! Just ready to take this one for a ride, which you have already done with Hogzilla!

Got the front tires back on and one side painted up.

Stripped the rears off their rims so I could see what is needed there! I will be swapping the tires around so the insides are out. One wheel was great, the other needs help!

here's the wheel #'s!
