No fins Doug. This an it no Cadillac. :P Some had louvers on the rear quarter glass..

Rick, that's a nice, nice car. I'm going resto mod. Keeps the cost down and gives me a chance to add a little of my taste to an otherwise awesome car.

I don't want a concourse perfect restoration. I want something you'd picture in a cannonball run.

Yes I did Fred, But the customer keeps adding and adding on to it. I'm removing the dash again because he had us paint it way back when and he gave us the wrong paint. He gave us black when it should have been a very dark charcoal metallic.

His mistake, he pays again. He suggested that I just mask the dash and steering column. I told him that he didn't scrimp on anything up to this point, why do it now ?? Yep the dash will be coming out for what seems like the 20th time !!!!!!!!!! :mad:

That '69 will look mean in black. Don't go nuts on the engine and compromise the drive-ability of the car. I made that mistake with a Camaro.

The ratty barn look is actually pretty popular now. Many a fixing/updating mechanical systems and leaving
the body with the 40 yo "patina". Not spending on high end paint leaves more for the stuff that REALLY counts :D
