Got my new gauges, my trans back and a radiator from Glen Ray!
Contrary to the opinions of some, I am not dumber than I look.

In that pic he had just removed the side stripes.  I'll have to ask him why he didn't strip all of the paint.

I'm just curious if you had received an answer from Wayne as to stripping or not stripping the previous paint.

Bell housing looks nice, but they were never painted completely orange like that... :alan2cents:  :bigthumb:

Not trying to prod the wound, but wasn't there some bondo under the paint?

There was on the front fenders, but I replaced them.  There was also a small skim on the very lower quarters in the rear when they were patched before I bought the car.  After the trailer incident, that will be removed.
