This 1970 Challenger is in the shop to get a fresh paint job. The owner has done all of the work himself and might I add, he has done a fabulous job. We really didn’t have to do too much to this one before painting. Now that it’s painted, next is to remove the masking and get it over to AutoTrim design to install the factory style decals. That happens on Wednesday. The owner will then send it to the upholstery shop to get the vinyl roof installed. Once that gets done, the owner will finish putting it all back together. He will then bring it back for finished pictures. He is recreating the first car he and his wife bought together. We like doing cars that have a meaning and ones that have fill a purpose. This one fits that role just fine.
We’ve been here. I know its been a while since my last post, we have been busy. Paul, my painter has been out with shoulder surgery and its just been Cole and I for the past 7 weeks or so. Its been crazy. Things are settling down some and we have been working on the Ghia recently so here is an update on it. The door glass, rubber, quarter glass and all rubber parts pertaining to them are in. All of these parts are original to the car, we just polished them up and detailed them so they would look as good as possible. The door sound so tight now when you close them. Its really nice. We also have running and driving car now. Although its not road worthy just yet. Its close. Plans for this week are to have the bumpers on, windshield in and get a couple of nick knack stuff painted. Its really coming together now.
