x1000. That first ding is going to feel like losing a child.

Your Fleetline is one of the reasons I started looking around for an "old" car. Couldn't find a dang fastback reasonable so I settled on a sedan coupe deluxe. Didn't realize that only the Canadian Ponitacs shared the frames with Chevrolet so everything is more difficult as far as the "easy" aftermarket stuff.

Re: Finally in some paint...

Beautiful!! May I ask what kind of bushing you are using to mount that fuel pump. I'm running the same pump and that looks like it would help! Thanks!

Re: Finally in some paint...

Great idea on those bushings, I'm running the same pump and while it's quiet, I do get some hum...that may be the ticket!

I see on YellowBullet that you are in to dirt late models, I spend time over at Jason Feger's shop and he helps me quite a bit with my cars...maybe see you at Eldora some time.

Re: Finally in some paint...

George, You're gonna have yourself a Fleetline that has the potential to be a Ridler Award winner !! The attention to detail and the fit and finish of every component that you've worked on is amazing. .

Re: Finally in some paint...

Thanks David!

Its not turning out too bad i really like the detail part of the build and it is nice to see it come together.

Still have to get over to Rosslers to get my tranny and assemble the suspension parts just picked up my a-arms had the new bushings pressed in, be nice to see the engine in the frame that be the next big step!

Then ill work on finishing up the lil details on the body work and hopefully get it over to paint first part of the year!

Thanks for all the motivation i'll keep you updated!
