The paint job associated with this restoration was as much work as all of the rest of the project!! I highly suggest that if you want to try to paint your project, and are looking for professional results, have a professional do it!! By the time I bought all of the materials, the paint tools, made a place to paint, made every mistake that can be made, I probably spent a lot of $ that I didn't have to.... I am glad that I stuck with it though, and the end result is exactly how I pictured it!!
The interior was made by Sewfine, the carpet was purchased from Jbugs, the floormats are from Coco mats. I installed gauges on the sides of the speedo, and have found that these are of great help while driving. They include a cylinder head gauge, oil pressure, volt, tach, and a clock. A retro stereo was installed with 4 speakers, a subwoofer, and seperate amp. An auxiliary electric heater was installed under the dash to help with the frigid New England winters!! I re- did the entire electrical fuse panel and system under the hood, as the original one was too messy for me, and I wanted more organization all of the extra components. It has proven to work beautifully.
The car has needed much "tweeking" to get it to run and perform as well as it is now, it's a joy to drive! My wife and I love it very much, and use it almost daily, for ice cream runs, go to the store, or just fun cruising around!! I'd like to thank JBugs again for all of their great products, customer service and fast deliveries, incredible for California to Connecticut!!
Thanks Again, Bob Lemay, Sherman, Ct."
