At least that is starting to look like a mini again, where do you get that front panel did it come with that grill inserted?

This is crazy! Good luck with the build!

 

I have to ask though, doesn't it get to a pint where it probably have been more cost efficient to just get a whole new replacement shell? Assuming you can new get replacement shells for pickups that is...

Thanks Guys..

 

We hadnt  seen the car before we agreed to do the job just got told it was bad ( not that it would have made any difference) but i think if i had seen it before the customer bought it i think i would have tried to get him to buy a different one.. It is easily the worst condition vehicle we have rebuilt..

Work looks really good quality, it will be a brand new shell by the time you have finished with it.
