      Thanks ! Here's a better picture of the shifter. As you can see in this picture, it is a Hurst. I fabricated a mount. I have a picture of the box, with the number of the shifter, I believe. I used a old Hurst super boot (not on in this picture. I'll look later for some more or better pics.

        Hey Tex, what's the warning decal on the dash? Also, what's the gizmo below the faux radio buttons?

            Trying to play young Jerry ? LOL You old enough to remember the Hurst shifter sticker from our early years. . Says: "Warning: Equipped with a Hurst shifter. Shift as hard as you please, but don't break your arm" The gizmo is a Mallory Rev-Pol control panel. It has a switch for race or street mode, with a blue light that comes on in the race mode.

                      Click image for larger version  Name:	 Views:	0 Size:	37.0 KB ID:	1803393 Got the hood hinges on, and got the hood painted underside and trimmed out. Hood is adjusted close and fenders bolted on loosely. Now for getting all the front sheet metal lined up. Then getting the lower air scoop primed and on. Starting to look like a car again.

                          Been working some , trying to get ready to paint. Got most of the front sheet metal lined up (what a job). Gonna paint the lower air scoop seperate. It's a lot better than what the factory did, but, its still not show quality. O well, I am past that anyway. Just gotta make it look like a early 60's Hot Rod, and enjoy if I can. The running gear is finished, with the exception of front end alinment. Hoping to get it ready to paint in about 2 or 3 weeks. Two of my grandchillun and me had to see about how it would hook up. Did good. It's ready to start earning it's name. "The Saturday Night Special" is out for a test


                          been trying to post a video for over half an hour. Now all I want is for someone to tell me how to delete this mess.

                            One of my favorite things on the forum is seeing other folks projects. It boosts my enthusiasm for my own projects.

                              Been trying to pull out some photos from video, as I gave up on the video, but only for the moment. I am unable to finish the hood and trunk nosing and decking. (getting over some health issues) Taking "The Saturday Night Special" down to a neighbor to finish the small amount of filler work. I am hoping my doctor will release me either the tenth or seventeenth, so when he finishes this maybe I can get it sanded and sprayed. Need to beat the weather this year. Here's a few shots.

                                Last post I was taking car to friend to help me a little. Well, after we spent about 8 more hours of seam adjusting , then he finished the hood and trunk. NOW, no more blocking. No more priming and reblocking. I am done with the body. Wet sand (maybe this week), and squirt in a week or two. It has been a long time getting to this point. But, Thank The Lord, it's turned out good. The next pictures yall see of the body, I plan for it to have paint !!!! Here' a couple of photos from today. (not good, inside and not good light)
