I can't believe how nicely that thing cleaned up!  Great workmanship on the rebuild.

I'm finding that in resto/refurb work, I'm often trying to honor the OB's vision, at least insofar as it doesn't completely disagree with my own. Drive on!

Exactly! The original builder had some good ideas but lacked a little bit in execution. Lol

You're a brave man, Greg! I'm sure you'll make it look killer.

I sure hope so!

Right you are Rich!!  Ol' Greg's at it again!!

Lmao!

Last night I got the sides all smoothed out. No more door handles, door locks, scripts, or fuel cap.

Then I started playing around with headlight treatments. I think I've settled on these units from a '59 Chevy. It will have a tube grille in between them.

Good headlight arrangement. This one's gonna be a lot of fun to follow along on. So much to learn from your builds. I promise............I don't have an old Ranchero in the stash to build this time.

No need to apologize for changing the color on this one... it had no color!  The important part is that you are saving it.

I'm not changing the color. I'm painting it the color that the original builder had intended.
