    They seem to have a virtual monopoly on the old car interior market here in the U.S.A. Legendary doesn't cover as many models as SMS.

    Okay. FINALLY started doin something with the radiator support I got from John a few years ago. I took a wire wheel to it to knock off some of the loose rust, and then hit it with some rust converter.

    I also cleaned up the undersides of the front fender stone shields. gave them the same treatment but also painted the bottoms as well since that was done a week ago.
    What was neat is there was a glob of something that must have gotten stuck to the underside of one of the pans when the car was virtually new. I scraped it off and couldn't believe how nice the surface was. Man how I wish the whole car could have been like that!














    Minty part! kinda hated to paint over it.

    A picture a friend of mine took who went with me on the day we picked her up in Missouri. A full day and 1200 miles round trip.

    Looks like she was well worth it. I have a picture of the day my car arrived. What a RUSH. And even more so when the 440 pulled in just growling.
