OK now, progress will slow a little, maybe not daily updates anymore, hehe, my 2 week holiday is over !

But the progress is much greater than I had imagined, I set my goal on getting the body on the frame and 'rolling' before end of my holiday, but the truth is that the car is now running and driving!

Running outside, runs off a coke bottle right now as I still have to get the sending unit and put the fuel tank back in

haha thanks so much, well I havn't got the doors yet, but they're waiting for me ! There is a Monte carlo fanatic in Iceland that has a lot of spare parts, he was restoring a Monte Carlo SS t Top car when there was a fire in the storage unit he was working and his car burnt to a crisp, now he is importing a body shell from the USA to put on to his old frame so it will be all good again, this is why he has spare doors for me

thanks guys, the last shipment is just leaving florida now, thats my floor and some tuning tools etc, i'll complete the reassembly of the interior, fixing the drivers seat(back is bent/broken) and put the new carpet on the floor, clean everything real good and undercoat the car,

then its just doors before the summer and it should be a cruiser..!
