Well, it is what it is.  I'll start off with some before pictures.  Unfortunately, my partner doesn't think about taking pictures so I have to take them before he gets to far.

Right click on picture and select "view image".

In progress with some parts.  Seat frames have been sandblasted and broken springs and such fixed.

Beautiful! you've done justice to a very nice automobile. 

I think the mid-60s Mopars were some of the best looking cars ever.  I love the shape of them and the way they were fitted out.

Thanks!  We love Mopars too!  I'll post pic's of my friends '57 fury sometime.  Unfortunately, in this case the customer tied our hands.  We wanted to do so much more to restore the car (like save the rusty floor), but he didn't want to do it.   We seam sealed it for free just 'cause we give a crap even if he didn't.

We tried to talk him in to painting the car first and then doing the interior.  Now were doing a new convertible top next week (white).  All this on a car that needs major body work and paint.

Strange dude for sure.

Isn't that a shame!  It must be very discouraging to receive a car in serious need of major structural work and be told to do your thing on the interior.  I understand that money is always an issue but it really does seem foolish to spend all that money on an interior when you've failed to do the real grunt work first. 

Painting over rust or rotten wood never works... for very long.
