Thank you for asking Kurt. As some know, there were some "life changes" for me last year that interfered with a number of things. This vehicle is being restored at a shop not directly accessible to me, and I am happy with it proceeding at a pace set by them. The vehicle was far more work than anticipated, and is taken care of when there are no other jobs active. There were some delays since last discussion, as well as changes in staff there. However, a staggering degree of work was accomplished this last month and I actually planned on a post in the next few days anyhow. What a change from the absolute trainwreck it was when I got it. Never making that mistake again.

Guess I need to start worrying about where I'll be putting it!

Looking great Nick! As I have said before, that is one lucky rig to have ended up in your hands!

Starting to look a littler prettier! This is Porcelain White, a 1970 Oldsmobile color. GM Code 48/WA3465, PPG 8631, Dupont 5040D/5040L.

Does anyone have the measurements of how far from the large tunnels the front auxiliary lights should be?

I am sure someone on the board can identify this car, and provide the measurement. Steve Loftin can you help?

There's a '69 with the auxiliary lights about an hour and a half from me; I'll see if I can't get to it soon.
