    Just finished getting the front suspension under the car again,replaced all the front end parts,brakes etc. Going to pick-up the oil pan for the 430 this week,i am converting to 430-4-speed,something different i guess.Nice to work on a rust free car for a change,came from NC last year.I will try to keep updating as project progresses.Plain old 64 skylark wagon,had to take the windows out due to the seals rotting out on them :3gears: [​IMG][/IMG] [​IMG][/IMG] [​IMG][/IMG]

    That looks like it's going to be a nice car when you're finished. I just bought a '65 Special wagon. I plan on putting my stage 2 engine in it. :TU:

    I have been leaning towards the new Ford Colour on the 05 mustangs,kinda medium dusty blue?? With the new colours can you only get them in base clear or can you get them in acrylic enamels? I know its a Ford colour but its either that or the deep copper 05 Gm colour??..Darren

    Did ya get any of that Por 15 on ya anywhere, That stuff is awesome on a car but man its rough on the skin..... Your car looks great, love seeing a Buick get the TLC it needs specially since its a cool wagon.................. Your garage looks like mine, my wife wants it back but not till the car is done...

    Yes it does take a while to wear the por 15 off of the skin. :Dou: almost as long as the window urethane.Luckily my wife doesnt drive but that doesn't mean i dont hear about the motors and transmissions and other assorted stuff in the garage every day!.. :Smarty: Oh well hopefully get the interior done this winter and motor rebuilt then maybe :3gears: Darren
