    That SC is going to look great... better than the day it rolled off the assembly line. You guys have gotten more done in a few months than I accomplished in several years on my Cougar. Just wish I had that kind of time.

    Looking great Chris, kudos to Nick, tell him to hang in there.. I've got to make it over to see the progress.... Such a great build, I love y'alls attention to detail on this.. Is he going back automatic or is he going to make it manual??

    They really are doing one hell of a job, I was over there the other day and it was up on the lift and the front end looked better than factory new.

    It's no longer my ported late model blower. It belongs to Nick now That blower should work well on the early model SC and will look OEM.

    Keep up the good work.

    You are lifting the front from a really bad spot. Put the lift arms on the frame rails next time, that area will crush if the car had its full weight on it.

    Man, the little extra's you guys are doing will make this thing last for ever, great work Nick and Chris..

    I never could have done it with this much love and care, I don't have the shop or the tools to go as far as you guys did..

    can't wait to see it finished..

    the color we used is a RM tint color its a very very very fine silver metallic for painting wheels code D-121 and it didn't come out as well as i was thinking it would we found out the hard way you can't just paint it over a sanded surface nick sprayed a base of silver first (first miscalculation should have bin black) then sanded it with 2000 sand paper and sprayed it with the d-121 (second miscalculation) you can't spray over sanded parts the tint is to fine that even 2000 grit sanding marks show up so spray it again with the base silver then right to the tint then it looks good then clear but i think its too silver nick thinks it's OK and it is his car so on the car it want
