    You are lucky. I had to take all of that moulding off and putty it back together.

    The previous owner had pop-riveted the moulding on like 12 times. :rant2:

    I'm gonna kill this guy if I ever meet him, he's a fucking imbicile.

    It's a 72 from what I can see. As far as the bodywork goes...well, that's what I used to do for a living so no biggie. The shop I work at has pretty much everything and I have freedom to use it on may days off or when we're closed.
    I'm going to pull the engine/trans to clean the engine bay and probably put a whole new wiring harness, seeing as the previous owner has too many random toggle switches just hanging under the dash:hs:
