Thank you
Well after a repaint I was able to cut and buff the body. It’s came along way since 2019

Looking great. Lots of progress. Keep at it. Will be very enjoyable.
Been working on the body work hope to paint it in the spring. The short block is done stroked it to a 434

So after a few months,I have finally got to work on the Road Runner. Here’s a few pictures. Started to do bodywork on the passenger door and hopefully finished up the rear quarters where I welded the skins on. Applied the Eastwood opti flow roll on epoxy primer. I recommend it if you have no way to spray primer on. Thanks for looking.

Coming along nicely! Keep it up! ruffcut
Here’s some pictures of the progress on the road runner. Things will probably slow down for a while as I recently lost my job. But I will continue with the restoration as best as possible. Got some more yellow paint on and replaced the 22in. Radiator support with one for a 26 in radiator. Also primed the engine compartment and drivers side quarter panel with Eastwood,s roll on epoxy primer. It works pretty good. It’s a lot thinner than I expected . Thanks for looking . Have a great 4 th of July
