I am going to try and post a link in this posting that contains photos showing the history of my car from when I first purchased it at age 15 for $600 bucks to its current state following sheetmetal work. I completed an eye candy restoration in High School to be able to drive it during the midwestern summers. Heck I had to work all year just to afford the three months of insurance. If this link works to my Shutterfly account I will add additional posts as time goes by in completing my concourse driven restoration of this car.

Try the link below (if it works)

Did you set up a garage? You could add a garage button to your signature. Makes it a little easier.

I like that body dolly you have setup. I need to rig something like that for my shop.

Well, got a few photos from Mustang Central today. He has the quarters all reworked from the previous incorrect install and the replacement doors and original hood stripped to bare metal. Just a couple of photos to share with the mustang family.

Thanks for sharing the pics. It's nice the bodyshop is sending you pics. I stopped by the body shop almost every Friday to take pics of the progress. It added about 30 minutes to my commute home from work (not including picture taking time).

Ole Pony;

It would be really hard to explain being late for dinner after a 920 mile round trip drive. I must admit I would love to go every week. I am planning a trip on Saturday 02/18/12 to bring down the AMK fastener kit and couple of other odds and ends. Next trip wont be until March.

That is a long round trip! Maybe the body shop will let you set up a Web Cam and we can all watch the progress live! :idea:
