What it was, What it is

I purchased this 97 SE back in June of this year. Replaced the tub, driverís door, and rear bumper. Painted Hugger Orange and Hot rod black, sprayed inside of tub with Alís bed liner, painted all the interior plastic. New frameless soft top and new windshield. While I had it apart I put in a new clutch, replaced the rear main seal, oil pan and valve cover gasket. Power washed the frame and engine. Been driving it the last couple of weeks fixing little problems here and there. Just picked up some used seats and the tires and wheels this weekend. I still have a few more things to get squared away, but nothing major for now. Pick up a lot of info of of the forum. Here are some before and after pictures.

That's clean. I'd be afraid to wheel it! The fastback top really makes that rig look nice.

I used Krylon Fusion, seems to be what a lot of people on the forum are using.

Amazing work. I don't know what you named it, but the word "Phoenix" comes to mind.

Looks sweet. Only thing I would change is I would scratch up the headlight trim rings and do them in hugger as well.
