    I trimmed the remainder of the quarter off this afternoon and started fitting the wheelhouse. I decided to just splice in about half of it since it's quite a bit more surgery to swap the whole thing. All I needed was the first couple inches of wheel lip anyway. The trunk drop on this side is wafer thin, so I'm going to replace the majority of it once that part comes in. Hopefully the other side is a little more solid than this one.

    Nice car! Wow...that's the second unicorn on here this week. You should race Duane to the finish line. Good luck with the resto.

    LOL Nick has a leg up on me there with that being his full time job. I have to figure out how to squeeze this in after work and on weekends. With 10-12 hour days there, it makes it hard to spend time in the garage after work. My goal is to have this ready by mid November...so I'm going to give it hell.

    Being that Adam is getting all the stainless etc. pieces to polish from my car, he is the one controlling the race.

    I always liked that car and am still very appreciative of the fact that Mike brought it to the GSX reunion.

    If you meet that deadline, you would be exceeding the pace of most any full time shop.

    I've found that if I give myself a date to shoot for, I will work a little harder on the front end so I'm not scrambling at the end.

    The 67 Electra I am finishing up after a year work working on it is a product of taking over 2 months off due to a move. So hopefully I won't have any issues like that on this car...although the quarters were a surprise. I hope to have these on in the next couple weeks so I can move on to stripping the rest of the car.

    There will be a GSX showcase at MCACN in Rosemont this year? I cannot seem to find any information about it. Sorry for hi jacking the thread a bit. I saw a red GSX at the reunion a few years ago. Very cool car. Good luck with your time line!
