Default 0327 Body and Paint Done Pics

Today I drove 0327 to the interior shop. Body and Paint are complete. The interior guy says a week; maybe he means one week of labor. Because inevitably he'll need some plastic interior part that will be hard to get, so I have no illusions it will be a calendar week.
Pics below.

Taking the time to do it right shows in the end result!
Bet you can't wait to get behind the wheel when it's completed.

Best wishes

Default 0327 Interior Update

0327's interior is nearing completion. The dash is back together, carpet in, door panels rebuilt and installed. Chrome strip needs to go on door panels. Headliner goes in next. Getting there!

Red face 0327 So Close

Getting sooo close to being done. A few minor details in the interior are left. But then we took a step backward. The dash pad was dyed the right color, but during installation, the part above the left speaker broke out. This is the portion with the holes to let the sound through. Old and very fragile. So I ordered a new repro dash pad from CJ Pony Parts; it gets in next Monday, then that will have to be dyed and installed.
Sometimes it seems like you take two steps forward, then one back. This delay is really going to make it difficult to get it ready for the Ripon show in October. Even if it isn't finished I think I'll bring it anyway.
I do need a set of the trunk lid decals. I've messaged John10608 as I recall he had some a year ago.
So close, but not quite there, after 3 years and a lot of $! Kind of like waiting for a date...you've been looking forward to it and now you're there waiting but she's got to finish her makeup, or change dresses, or is looking for a certain pair of shoes she wants to wear, etc... lol

Quite a road you’ve taken...it will all be worth it, in the end 🎉.

Default 0327 Update

0327 has finally come home, about 2 1/2 years after it made the ~150 mile journey to the body shop. I posted one of these pics elsewhere, but since this is the 0327 thread thought it should have pics for completeness.
It came back one week before the Ripon EV show, and there was just too much left to do to get it ready for that show, so the next target is the Morro Bay show in April 2020.
What remains for 0327 is trunk lid decals, then the electrical eqpt reinstall (CC1, MAP2, scanner, radios, etc.). I also need to rebuild the shotgun rack with the new lock from Santa Cruz gunlocks.
The rainy season will start here soon, typically after Halloween. Good indoor work, getting 0327 finished.
