Finishing up hood:





Prepped cage for paint, I don't think I posted a picture of the cage arms yet. These were the ones I had to weld to make this a bolt in cage.



Sanding of the inside of the car is complete

Things to do this weekend:
-sand the last of the body bits
-back to the rotisserie
-weld in harness plates
-seal edges
-stonegaurd parts of bottom

Hopefully you guys will get to see some paint next week!!!
