Here is a couple of links to my gallery. This Bird has been in the family since it was new. I got it last November and started the bodywork. It is set to be painted Aug 1st. I will send more pictures as I progress.

I like the all-black interior; but then that's what I have in my car....

The chrome is stunning. This will be a beautiful car when finished. - Dave

I could not tolerate the black and white interior.

Hi Zachary! She is coming along! The chrome looks great and I like what you did to the grill! It is to bad that Ford did not think about opening the grill up like you did, and adding that Tbird script to it. I wish I had thought of that! As for the black and white interior, I did not mind it, but once I decided to go bright yellow and white on the exterior paint, I wanted the interior to match it. When you gitterdone please post some more pix!

Zac, It is certainly coming along nicely and you are doing a great job keeping it in the family. What color did you choose?

I chose a burnt orange metallic with a pearl silver top. I will post the pictures when its done. It is getting painted today. I am on travel so I wont see it for a couple of weeks. Bad timing for me, the anticipation is killing me.
