      As an update, the interior of the car is pretty much gutted as I clean every corner of this thing. It needs it.

      The paint was dead from sitting in the sun. After rubbing compound, polish, swirl remover, and glaze, it looks one hell of a lot better. Unfortunately my back is shot.

          Congrats on the find, Ox. Nice car and should be a fun project.

          Also, I forget how hilly St Lucie can be in certain areas.

            Yeah you better gut the interior and start over, you know anyone who would drive a car like that is definitely into weird gay sex stuff.

                Ox doesn’t need to vouch for his own sexuality. Don’t ask me how I know. I just know.

                My FIL has done upholstery work for over 50 years and does a lot of hot rods. People come from all over the state to see him. Worth the drive to NC to get someone to do it. I know there are others out there, but you won't find anyone any more persnickety than him when it comes to covering seats, carpet, headliners, etc. I worked with him a about 8 months after college and saw first hand what quality versus **** looks like.
