Smitty, aka Buddy Smith, has been diligent on the Superbird of late. Between the Challenger T/A and my Superbird, he has struck a nice balance of production and more importantly for him ( and me ), he's having fun.. Nothing better than a restoration guy who enjoys what he's doing. Of late he finished up the priming and prepping the sheetmetal to include the roof, floorpans and around the original Road Runner rear window prior to installing the rear window plug back in...
I keep forgetting to put in a plug for him..

Yes, he's a big fan of Elvis

Whats weird is that Kenny Rogers spent a lot of his youth in Crockett, and he has a pet goat named Smitty.

Thanks for asking...

Operation Superbird;
Went over to Smitty's a few weeks ago to see the progress on the Superbird. The nose is about to be rewelded back together from having the top skin separated to help facilitate fixing of a dent. The trunk is almost done, went with the halves so we didn't have to remove the taillamp panel.. Brought the wing components so things can be test fitted later. Coming together..

Probably the worst part of the car, lower driver's side of the plug... But very fixable. Can use portions of the original filler panel that needed to be replaced, window channel patch of original is in great shape..

Operation Superbird Hood:
Smitty has tackled a big part of the paint and body of the Superbird, the hood. He has gotten to the point of getting the donor skin trimmed and mocked up with the original extension.. With the protection to the skin underneath, the hood should never rust again. Moving forward...
Last picture is the upper skin template to preserved the body line down the middle during the folding process
