$300 AND 6 HOURS LATER

so i have been looking for just a shell to swap in my motors and drive around. this was it. body is near perfect minus some real light rust and the front valance. the rust i will be getting rid of very soon. the headlights and grills and some near mint fogs were all in the trunk so i can slap those on. i already have everything else here to get it to perfect condition except the front plastic. the car came with 2 rear bumpers .. so now i have 3 rear bumpers and 0 front bumpers.









mint dash, knee panel and a bunch of other stuff were a plus. most of the interior was in pieces on the back seat, most of its still there





the tool kit was mint .. so i will be selling it as i have no need for it.

first thing i did was remove all the trunk tar and all the carpeting to access all the bare body metal.



next was to replace the front valance .. that is clearly not my leg/foot/shoe/socks



as you can see below i decided i liked the fogs better then the deletes. i also put on the headlights and grills that came with the car.



next was to put on one of my lights to replace the missing one. i had to open one of my many boxes of new parts.





im not sure what im going to do tomorrow. maybe a emblem/sticker shave and some euro plate filler .. or motor swap .. who knows ... i will post pictures.

How bad is the damage? He probably figures you have enough parts to fix it anyways.
i dont know for sure yet. his truck is still too close for me to see what more he could have damaged .. but green paint on the hitch was a rather obviuos giveaway that he hit my car. i should have left it parked at the street blocking the driveway.

its pretty early for me .. but i got some stuff done.

shaved the badge and the " Kemberling Auto" sticker. also put on a much better roundel. also cleaned the car.



still looked bad to me so i put the euro plate filler on. pulls the rear end together much better.

euro plate filler looks good, might have to look into one of those.
