My Daughter really loved driving the 88 Cutlass. It is running pretty good and decent on gas for her but I did a horrible orange peel paint job that needs to go. I see the panel under the driver's door has a big chunk rotted through. I was going to half strip the 88, steal the OD trans and cruise control for the 70S. Now I plan on removing the vinyl top, changing the side window trim, striping paint and letting my daughter help with the body work. The drive train is far from stellar but acceptable for now and reliable. She loves purple and a dark purple would go with the interior. I am thinking of a pop up shelter for a spray both and getting a HVLP paint set up, maybe from Princess Auto, whichever is rated the best. I would also get a decent quality auto paint, custom mix if necessary.

So does mine, angry, sensitive and a biting tongue. I just need to get my new garage door in and I will show her a couple of ways to strip the car and remove the vinyl top.

Well I have been busy on my 88 and have decided to post progress on this. First thing I did was remove the worthless vinyl top.

My son's stepdaughter has been helping him on his vehicles since she was 7. She also does karate, archery, and the harp. Pretty cool for a today tween
