Stuck in Houston for another week brickwall

Steve the shop owner promised me some pics, have not got them yet, from our last call I am told the pass door is now in Black Primer as well as the roof.  They are continuing on the driverside outer wheelhouse and rocker area. 

Perhaps end of next week the new rear quaters will be welded on.

They have asked for the rear back glass as well and window trim.

Pics when I get em. But slowly getting progress out of the project!

Hope to have it all primer next week. 
Options are the same primer black it is now, or a "Hot Rod Black".  I am leaning towards the hot rod black.  Seems the Black primer you can see the shades are inconsistant, so I think a Hot rod black as base for the Plum Crazy would be better than the primer I got now.

Need to finish half of the 8 3/4" Axle (wire-wheeling) and paint that.  Have the Caltrac rear suspension coming and need to weld in the sub frame connectors.  Install the rear and suspension...then wait til end of Sept for final paint.

I am trying to get the shop to mix me some gloss black with the same metallic volume the Plum Crazy will have for the bulge and the side stripes.

Back Home!  These are shots the shop sent me, I have not been up to look myself.  Bringing the Subframe connectors up and have the Caltrac Springs and Caltrac Suspension to put in next. 

Called AMD TODAY to get an update on the famed rear valance with cutouts...EVERY CALL promises promises...Todays news  15 August they will have a test piece and if it goes well production and on the shelves in two monthes...FUNNY...I been listening to that shit for a YEAR now.

Beer,
Those quarters look great, did the shop have many fitment issues with them. I was just wondering I haven't heard many people comment on the 73-74 quarters. They look great in the pics  2thumbs

From talking with the shop, they had some difficultly with the rear valance and had to modify that a bit to fit (rear valance was from a 73 as well, Dr. Pimp from Canada sent it to me).  I am heading up to the shop tomorrow to see it, going to drop off the Subframe connectors.
