Are they really ever finished? I finally was able to take it for a test drive in its new clothing and snapped a few pics. Here's some before, during, and after.

Me likey! Looks great, though it wasn't that bad to start with. I'm glad you have it back in running condition.

It did look decent but essshhhhh, mechanically it was tough - should've been a parts tractor for the parts tractor I bought.

jdslednut,
nice job on the 214 - i KNOW that is a lot of work.
i've got a '76 214 that i was gonna use for parts BUT it has an electric lift, the rear end is sound, already has both lift kits etc, engine runs strong ... just smokes a little bit.
It's ugly tho LOL.

That is quite a project. How long did it take? My brother in law just got a 214 handed to him. In running condition but needs some work and we are going to start tearing into that soon.
