Thanks Glenn, you know the kit can't come soon enough, so you have to do something to pass the time.

Greg, are you planning to do your own body work and paint? If so, I made my body buck in two pieces so the top part could be lifted off and set down at working height and then put back on the bottom part and the car chassis would still park under it. If that is your plan, I don't have any drawings but I can tell you how I did it. Your buck could be modified to do the same thing if needed.

I'm not planning on doing my own body & paint, but I can see what your saying and how it can be done fairly easily. When it comes time to paint I was planning to cut it down for my painter.

I think you are getting the first new gas tank. Mine has the older square one.

That's very possible, I know they had to make some modifications to the new style tank they had when I visited back in August.

After a few setbacks in the shop this past month, the frame was pulled from the jig today. Just a few items to complete and won't be long for powder coat.
