I put the rear bumper on Now depressed because I had to take the car out of the shop and put it in storage for a while. I'll be putting a rocker panel and cab corner on a chevy pickup this weekend and when that's done I get the joy of putting a rocker and both rear quarter panel on a 67 Pontiac lemans. the good thing is I've got the roof hood fenders and doors primed been waiting for the guy to get the parts and get them to me for about 2yrs now

In the pictures that show the door hinge area there's white conduit for wiring that runs into the door (I'm assuming for speakers and possibly power windows). Was that and the holes original to the car or did you add those?

 

I added speakers in the doors had donor doors for the rubber gromets so they are the correct ones for the car I had a spare set of deluxe doors that had them

Looks great. What rear brake did you use. I have Baer ironsports and to say I hate them is an understatement. Their caliper is a 94-2004 mustang rear caliper and I've had nothing but trouble out of them.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

Just an update on the progress. The new wheels and tires are in and on haven't got pics yet. They look awesome. Got a motor and tranny ordered from Proformance Unlimited and it should be here toward the end of June. Went with 450hp 408 stroker with march serpentine pulley set. Can't wait to get it put in and running. I'll get pics of the wheels soon. They are 18+9.5 on the rear with bfg sport comp 2 tires 255\45\18 rear and 17+8 on the front 225\45\17 front
