Worked on getting the cowl vent stripped and the chin spoiler sanded with 600 grit to prepare it for a coat of black.

Finally got my 240z seats reupholstered and will install soon. Also had a front bumper given to me and decided to get it re-chromed. Just can't bring myself to install it because it is too nice for the paint on the Wagon.

Seats look great Terry. The period look is perfect.
And my vote is to install the bumper. :-)

Did you strategically get the shadow reflecting off the right side of the hood? :D

Seriously - looks great. When you can paint anything black and make it look flat, you've done an awesome job.

Nice work.

Thanks Byron... Nothing strategic just point and shoot.

Got the hole in the transmission tunnel welded up. Still can't figure out why the previous owner cut such a large opening...

That was the hole the PO cut? Wow. Afraid to pull the shifter during an engine ATTACHED to a trans swap? Car looks really good!!
