Great work! I am at about the same spot as you but I see you are doing it better.

I wish I would have glazed the door and hood prior to epoxy and primer. I blasted, and epoxied and primed then block sanded. Now I have to go back and re epoxy and primer again and then probably block sand again. Live and learn, I guess.

Do you have any shots of how you mounted the trailblazer tank? I assume you will be moving the filler neck to the rear of the wheel well?

And what size is your "shop"? Amazing work area!

I get excited looking at threads like this. It's gonna be great. It spent alot of time at a shop that wasn't progressing, and you moved it to another shop...is that right?

I love your chassis detail, and those Offenhauser valve covers. Sweet.

You haven't run that Lunati cam yet, right? I was seriously looking at that one.

Oh yah nature will takes it course for sure,
but vehicles are made to be driven.

With the factory color scratches and such will be easily resolved.
