VERY NICE!
Chug a Lug

Have any rear view photos?
I'm curious which version of the tail light panel it has and if it has the valence exhaust trim.

Jeremy looks great - you do nice work!!

(one item, the shock tower caps, some refer to them as "beehives", should be semi-gloss black, so they do not to rust and because some have the added washer which was brazed/welded on and then needed painted to look all one color.

That radiator retainer was originally black also and will rust if left in current finish Wink

Jeff,     it always amazes me how such a detail is seen in a photo with so much to look at, and Im guessing you also had on your mind the other 9 pics too. Grin

Jeff thanks for your input... I thought the same thing but in this picture I have from june 1967 the bracket sure looks not to be black but phosphate and oiled. would sure like other input....plus the one that I restored didn't have any black on it before I restored...I know that isn't proof, I just finished it the way I thought was right. I will change if more say otherwise.

Figured that was the one car you had seem. Believe that one was just bare steel

The bottom picture is from an earlier car not a June built. And if you look at a close up it appears IMHO that there is black on the bracket just either very thin or didn't stick well





Here is another example from just after your cars Feb build period Look similar




Nice job - thermactor cars aren't the easiest ones - at least no AC    Roll Eyes

Yes just one example compared to thousands with paint from that month. But then your car was built in Feb not June. 
Don't know how that one happened or what had already taken place between when the picture was taken and when it was built

thanks and yes it was a very hard one to do, had a lot of help from a few people. Bob Gaines, Tom Gilliam, Brent, Jd Larson are among the people who helped try to get as accurate as we could...i'm sure there are things I missed or people will question but we can always improve it.

Thanks JD, I was positive it was supposed to be natural??? I thought for sure I was told different at last show? please any other opinions please let me know. Hope to have her judged at Indy this year. thanks for the nice words Jd. I am lucky to get the chance to work on peoples cars. I value the friends I get to meet and glad they give me the opportunity to work on there cars. have two more in progress right now along with all the other cars and my own... not enough time in the day, not enough days in the month and not enough months in the year..... hahaha
