Jeff, yes I'd like to see what you have. I have the AIM and that helps but pics are always helpful.

Karsten, exactly what I was thinking, rough it up good to provide a good tooth and start building it up. If I get the chance, I'm going to start on that ridge line this weekend...Eastwood now says another week for the profile gauges, but I should be able to get the ridge with the one I have.

this is the color combination I want to have my 82 painted. Mine was originally white though.

That is because a 90 vette money pit project got in the way of the 82's progress. Next year the 82 will get attention.

pictures before it went to a storage facility. But have big plans for including c4 based suspension frame and possible LT1 4l60e. But love the autumn red/dark claret color of yours so it will be that color when done.

I see....I like the two tone colors of mine too, and have bounced between this and black. I've settled on the two tone, but I think I'm going to use up dated colors. There are some very nice colors that GM, Ford and Acura have that I think would really enhance the autumn red and dark claret theme.

Thanks Jeff, the pics help. Shows that the cushion is rivited in place, vs. the wood screws mine had in it!! The new bracket and rebar have the holes kind of marked, but I have to drill everything so I should be able to line it all up.

Karsten, nope, can't drive it now, the whole front bumper and headlights are off the car, so bringing it to Orlando, probably isn't a good idea, but thanks! You're always welcome to come up here if you want! I have a bunch of work to do before I'm ready to shoot anything including primer, and my gig schedule for the band, and travel schedule for work are keeping me from my corvette work, so it might be a little while before the body work is done!!!
