    The mirrors were removed and disassembled. They are filthy and full of spider eggs.

    So now it's just sanding, sanding, sanding.

    I scrolled through it all, great work, I envy you a bit (but I got my hobbies too)!

    Back in ‘84, I helped a bit with my sisters boyfriend while he fully restored a 1969 Camaro SS, it was fun... patience, patience, patience! It’s like rehabbing an old house, you really don’t know what **** is inside until you start pulling it apart

    Don’t envy me. This should have been a parts car, it was that bad.

    Patience I got. I didn't/don't have the know how for a lot of it. You simply get on the internet and read up on it, and then dive in. Only way to learn.

    Socks with flip flops?

    I'm afraid we can't be friends anymore.

    I was waiting for some idiot to point that out. I had socks on in the house and had to go out to the garage for a moment. I sure as hell wasn't going to put on my shoes.

    At any rate, the disassembly and sanding continue. Got the door handles off and had to remove the glass in the doors to do so.

    So how many Oxbux would it take to take that thing off your hands? I have 4300 in my pocket right now.

    Didn't your Oxbucks come with the "no cash value" legend?
