Wohoo!! Two weeks left of Duplicolor's Restoration Challenge and I made the top 4! This week i'm up against a '68 Yenko Camaro Clone. This will be a tough matchup and i'm hoping the Warbird will pull through this round and move on to the finals.

I Made the Restoration Challenge!!

This is a challenge Dupli-Color is hosting to find the best vehicle restoration done without any professional assistance. This pretty much defines my ’69 Firebird restoration. I was chosen out of roughly 300 cars to be in the top 32. Now that I was chosen for the top 32, I need your help. The top 32 cars are now in a bracket style competition where they must be voted for by registered users. I already won my first round, and now I am up against some tough matchups. There are 4 more rounds, one week each, and I would like all of you to take the time and register to vote. Then check out all the cars and vote for who you think deserves the title of best homebuild ride.

Check out www.restorationchallenge.com to sign up and http://www.re...e.com/bracket for the bracket.

They are never really finished.

Well, this past weekend my steering gearbox decided to leak all of its power steering fluid all over the garage. Looks like the seal just came apart (I guess getting 40 years of use out of one isnt so bad) and tommorow my new gearbox is coming in, so hopefully this weekend I can be back out on the road. I guess theres always something to do on these cars. Should be a fun swap though.

A busy Sunday

Well, today I finally sprayed some color onto the Mustang. After about 5 hours worth of taping off the boss stripes, tailpan, and prepping the door jambs and underside of the trunk lid, I got to finally paint this thing. Im not sure why, but it looks gold in the pictures, but I can assure you its not; its a light/lime green metallic with the black stripes. Overall I think it came out awesome, and was definately neat to paint something other than one solid color. But after 12 solid hours of working on it today, im worn out and ready to pass out.

On the road now

Well today was the Firebird's first time in a car show and first time it has been on the road for over 15 years. I just felt really good today getting a chance to sit back and watch people admire over my 2-1/2 years of work and it was even cooler to get to drive it for the first time since ive been restoring it. She still has some tuning/carb issues to work out, but I can drive it around and enjoy it for the purpose I originally bought it for.
