Really please with the way the car turned out. Here's a shot inside the shop when I first arrived.

Home sweet home.

Overall I'm really happy with the end result, need to let the paint cure for a couple of weeks before I start installing the trim, need to order front and rear glass seals, locking strips, trim clips plus new trunk and engine bay seals.

Now, on to the engine rebuild.

Just out of curiosity, why didn't you take the horns out ??

BTW, should look fantastic when all re-assembled.

once the paint is cured, give it a nice 3 stage high speed polish !
It'll shine like a mirror !

ps: you need to lower it
