:eek:My daughter today said that she would like to have the Bel Air in her wedding.
Now she doesn't have a date yet, they are talking about marriage but want to wait until both are out of school. The thing is that gives me about 30 months to finish the car.
It needs new trunk floor, whole floor replaced because it's cheaper than buying all the pieces I need. Media blast the body, build the engine, find a replacement front right fender. mock everything up, take it apart to paint, put it back together. fine tune everything.
Not to menetion the cost.
The good thing is the wife wants to cruise with it so buying stuff for it won't be as bad:tu
We have the frame painted and the rear end back on it. the front end is waiting for the shop to press in new bushings for the new A arms, hopefully that will be done tomorrow.
I have a front disc conversion waiting too along with new springs.
this list could fill a book:eek:
Anyway I thought you guys should know I'm going to be asking alot more questions.

Don`t look at it as pressure. Looks at it a whole lot more incentive to get it done sooner.
That kind of pressure is what got me moving again, except i only had 3 weeks to get what i had to do done.

Wow BigDave, You have a wedding to give & restore a tri-five. The cost of both alone is enough to put someone in the poor house, but both together. You must share the secrets on the money tree you have.:confused0006:
