    The car was purchased as a running driving project with all of the mechanical done I drove it for a couple of years and put an interior in it. cracked bondo revealed a car that had been floated in bondo the entire lower 8" from a pillar to a pillar, and the hood. i stripped the car and decided to go all out. It took exactly 7 months from the moment i dropped it off at IB Kustoms in Burbank, and it took 23 days of nights and weekends from the day Vintage Metal dropped it off in primer to perform finish primer and block sanding, paint the car (My first complete paint job, including 3 stage pearl and flake flames) and complete assembly. the car had to be in the arena by 7 PM on Feb 23, 2010 and we rolled it out of the shop with wet pinstriping at 5:58 PM to hit the freeway to Long Beach. it was by far one of the most harrowing and rewarding experiences of my life.
