Hang in there. These things happen to all of us. The work on the car looks fantastic. Awesome progress. Really cool you are doing it with your dad and son.

I suggest using Bulldog adhesion promoter. It is available in a spray can and works really well.

Don't get discouraged. We all learn the hard way. You did an awesome job buying the right car. Killer deal. You guys have done a lot in a short time. Tuned in to the build.

Thanks man I appreciate the kind words. We will just keep moving forward

I saw a 86 regal in a local u pull and pay with all the trim in good condition. I may grab some and this time do it right and in a few months when we go to paint i will swap it and then strip and sell this stuff here

Received my tranny shifter seal, seal remover tool and speedo gear housing. Look forward to getting that in installed this weekend.
Also finally registered the car, got my antique plates and cant wait to get it on the road!




Oh and lets change these out. Its just a couple of felt door sweeps.......how hard can it be!!!!!!!
My car hates me

Finaly finished my interior assembly!!! Good day

Car is going to shop this week for alignment and to power bleed brake system and just a general once over. Then to exhaust shop for new exhaust. I want it on the road this week and rather have the “pros” take care of it

I put the new speedo housing and speedo cable and flyid is leaking through. ??? Any ideas?

Oh and we got the cluster LED lights working!!! Thank God. Had to run some jumper wires between bulb housing cuz the ribbon was broke
