Sunday I stopped and looked at a 1976 coupe deville. If it was in better shape I would trade my pt cruiser for it. Wish I could swing the deal, but I'll just have to soldier on for a while longer.
LOL,You guys are killing me tonight,What the heck did you do to piss that dog off so bad.....

Not much on the hood, really like the stock hood, but just love the wheel and tire combo, rocks.

Finaly got the cheap weather strip off the '36 hood and some quality weather strip back on. The Goo-Off BarryK recommended did the trick. Glad to have that behind me.

why is it that when you really need something to stick you have to go through all the prep steps or else your in trouble but when you try to get it off something unprepped, like paint ofn glass or chrome it sticks like crazy???
I have more trouble with weather strips than anything , the yellow stuff looks like crap and gets all over everything and the black stuff gets on everything else ...You just cant win..

Got the front nose pieces welded together and welded on to the hood.
Unfortunately, I had a mistake on my buck, and both sides need to be modified.

The long piece clamped on the side was made by one of the guys at the meet.

Wow Pugs. There is a lot of work in that. It is really looking good. I know lots of us look forward to your updates. I would love to go to one of the metal meets.

That rear window really looks great Brian. You have got to be getting excited. I know I am and it isn't even my car. Keep up the good work.
