    Day 74...omg this is a long project. Lots of metal work completed. I still need to patch the floor in a couple places and I have a lot of tidying up to do now on the welds. I finally decided on an exact paint color. it's a custom mix so nobody else will have my color.

              mine is based off of Hydro Blue that comes on the new Dodge Ram trucks but I changed the formula and lighten it up a bit because it was a little too dark. it's crazy how close those two colors are together. you obviously have good taste in color.:thumbsup:

              Shaved drip rail. Just have to fill in with a strip of metal to smooth it to the roof.

                    The car is coming along and I will have pictures to show soon. I'm trying to get my trunk aligned right now. It all lines up great except that the front is sitting high in the middle but is flush on the corners. I'm not sure what has changed since I took the lid off, the only thing I can think of is the dutchman panel needs to come up in the middle. Any ideas?

                      Here's mine, I had to bury the corners pretty good to get the center flush and the sides to line up nice with the quarters.

                      I did get it mostly done. I still have yet to fix it at the front where it meets the door because there is a big gap where the factory drip rail overlapped the area. once I get my doors fitted then I can finish that part.
