Project fast cheap AND good

Have been putting off doing the body and paint but finally came up with a plan that doesn't consume all of my free time. Bought parts car, will use fenders and hood and driver door from exterior and the dash and some trim from the interior.

The plan is to minimize the down time on my daily driver svt. Have about five hours of work into it. The goal is to keep the man hours low. Calendar time is another story, all depends on my schedule.

The white rattle can was just to keep the rust away from bare metal. Didn't have time to finish metal work. Door will be returned to parts car and possibly donated to vet charity IF I get the title.

Upside down somehow. Kid that brought car to Vegas slid it into a headstone or something in a cemetary.
