I just went through all 6 pages of this thread and I am SO RIDICULOUSLY impressed with the process of your restoration. Seriously. I can't even imagine the time and money invested within this evasive project. Watching your videos and viewing these photographs has been real treat. I can't wait to see more progress. Thanks for sharing, Shelby! I am thoroughly, thoroughly impressed! :D

Thank you Olivia. I hope to have some more photo's soon. I've been traveling a lot lately doing charity track events, car shows, and recently SEMA.
