Finally after about 18 months into the build we are getting things in slicksand and basic etching primer on the interior and underbody. My cars best Westworld impression. The other photos from above and rear 3/4 view are sand slick sand. The shine you see is before primer. The picture from below shows the extra beefy bad dog frame rails as well, ties the front and rear subframes of the car together which really stiffens it up.

And up to date with its present condition, seam sealer used in all the right places to try and keep as much moisture out of the car as possible and preserve this thing for many years to come. The first real paint on the car, PPG GM black for the roll bar and engine bay, also showing the cut radiator support for much easier engine installation. And photos of the lizard skin over primer on the inside and underside of the car. Tough as bedliner, but not very heavy, very good heat and sound insulation to make it much more comfortable to drive.

Awesome. Looks like a really fun, but expensive, time consuming, hair pulling but eventually rewarding project. I would love to try something like that some day, but probably be afraid to start. Maybe when I retire.

I agree. Can't even imagine doing a restoration of this magnitude. My hat's off to you...

Final top coat done over the lizard skin to get it darker and protect it a little bit. The body is in primer but no sanding on it yet. Not until its ready for final paint and assembly. She is finally ready to go to a new temporary home where we can turn it into a car. Will be nice as I can help work a fair bit more on the mechanical side of things.

I love classics that can be driven and appreciated even at todays standards.
This is one of them.
