Cleans up real nice! I am impressed, a true diamond in the rough! After a detail like that, seems like it would be time to sit back and .

Made some progress over the weekend, fixed the tail light with my extra set and stripped the interior and cleaned it and shampooed the carpets. Also threw my extra Indy headrests in it just because.











Also got the new hood today and ordered a Indy grille.

Here it is. Indy grille with the regular grille chrome center. I'm sure it's been done however I've never seen it. It's something different to tell them apart.





Yes I know the bumper isn't perfect but not worth fixing on a winter car. Next item is door emblems

Making a junkyard trip tomorrow still got a few things before shes winter ready.

-window regulator
-seat cover (if i can find one)
-tires
-battery
-remote start
-HIDs
-exhaust leak

More than likely I won't replace the worn off SS emblems. I can't justify paying $200 for emblems on a car I plan to just drive in the winter and will likely sell next year for a low miles blue or silver one.
