After much prep, frame rail repair, and some rust repair, my '71 has moved into the paint booth. I'm glad I had some old Jeep wheels to throw on it for its time in the body shop.

More. I had forgotten the trunk had come off of a green parts car until I saw it stripped; it's been Plum Crazy for almost 20 years. Soon, it'll be Ivory Tri-Coat Pearl.

I've got a new home for it in work. I wanted to build a bigger one, but zoning got in the way. This is the biggest detached garage I'm allowed.

Are you painting it in the garage? Don't remember seeing to many old Mopars in Pearl white. LEON.

I'm not painting it. A local collision shop maintains a separate restoration facility. They're tackling the prep and painting.

I had added an Electric-Life power window kit, but the wires kept binding in the door jambs. So, I've put in door jamb contacts. It's nice to now get it painted which should eliminate the hacked-in aspect of cutting in those jamb switch holes.

New paint was smooth. Too bad I couldn't see the blotchy pearl in the shop lighting.
