    That's the way to do it!

      Other projects that popped up finally aside, and I'm back working on it again. Got any minor surface rust around the vehicle taken care of, all the little door dings and stone chips feathered out and filled in. We'll see how my body work skills are once I get it primed and blocked sanded. Hoping to prime it this weekend.

      Also, if anyone knows of someone selling the front GFX, I'd love to get ahold of them. I know they're pretty hard to find.

          Should have been specific, the GFX I need for mine are the W68 front pieces. Thanks though!

            Got the body (mostly) primed on Saturday. Due to the heat and my lack of experience in painting, it took a bit too long and I started getting clogging in the paint gun. I ran out of time for the day so I wasn't able to finish the back panel. For the most part though, it turned out pretty good for not having held a paint gun in over 15 years.

              Ah, sorry for the bum lead.

              It's all one color!

                So I had a 98 Z28 show up on my radar the other day. I went to look into it as a drivetrain donor for the Firebird. This thing is just too clean to mess with and the price is right. It looks like I'll be selling this one off either as a project for someone else or part it out. The Z needs short block work (spun a bearing) but not really a huge deal. I can either swap a 5.3 short block in for now, or just down it and rebuild what's in there now. Either way, I'm hoping I can find a good home for this one since it's rust free.
