My headliner came in and it is laying out to dewrinkle (isataword?) Anyway it's gittin the wrinkles out! Waiting on some warmer weather on a weekend to put headliner in. Have been preparing for the headliner. Have the insulation in the top and have put in the windlace and headliner retainers. Have some tack strip to put in and it'll be ready

              Been working a little. The guy that was supposed to cut and buff the car has held me up for about 4 weeks. Since my last post I have finished painting, installing door weatherstrips, and assembling quarter windows. The vent doors and gas tank lid are now on. Cant't put the headliner in until it's buffed. Can't put the windshield and back glass in til the headliner is in. Interior is very slow, but still working on it as well as getting interior moldings ready to paint. Got him washed and taped up openings to ready for buffing. Guy says he is coming tomorrow ???

                      Finished the trunk weatherstrip and it fit and turned out good. Still working on headliner. Not finished with headliner yet . Got to take a break from headliner. The remainder of my tire shipment came in. Getting them mounted and balanced. Will have pictures on them on car soon. Meanwhile, a little lighter note . Dragging out some of the accessories and deciding which ones to use. The tag cover/surround is first.

                          The wheels look awesome on the car, and the car looks awesome because it almost is a car again. Great work. By the time the virus blows through the country you’ll be ready to drive it!

                            The wheels are great and I love the early C/K cars in dark colors.

                                Thanks for the kind words, However the quality of my build is not as good as in past. No show quality. Just as I said before, a backyard hot rod. Finally got the headliner behind me. I don't wanna do another headliner soon Now for the windshield and back glass, so I can get to the interior. The windshield wasn't a big deal. Went in easy. I am afraid the back glass won't be the piece of cake the windshield was. Here's a few pictures of the windshield install.
