Listen carefully! THIS CAR BELONGS TO MY WIFE. It's being built the way she wants it. I'm just the care taker of her cars

The shop put the car on one of their two post lifts and dropped the front cross member and rear axle on Monday. They painted the underneath side of the car along with the engine compartment. Doug @ Tiger Auto rebuilt a series 5 front cross member and the shop will install it. I have the refurbished rear axle here at the house. It will be installed after the rebuilding of the rear springs.

Probably just me, but if your camera could be backed up a bit for a more comprehensive photo, would be nice to visualize what's not available anywhere else. That I know of.

Default Just wondering....

Bob, Is that going to be a "white" car?

Just kidding of course

Nice looking finish. Wish I had an over head lift like that.

P.S. Might have to show these PIC's to the wife (several times) in order for her to get the message. Huh?

Dan,
It's the same color as the 69GT and the interior is the same red that we used in the 69GT. The car will have the same wheels as the 69 and the series 4. The lift is at the body shop. This particular lift is a 12000 lb unit. I would like to have a four post lift.

John,
There's nothing under the car but painted metal. This section of the car was painted on Monday and I took these photos on Tuesday. Kinda like taking a photo of a white sheet hanging on a wall. Not much to look at other than a battery box and a rust free underneath side of a white car.

The body work is done and the body was ready for it's first coat of paint when I took this photo @ 5:00 EST.

The car now has paint. The color is the same as my 69GT.
