Short term goals for the K car are to get it finished! There isn't too much left to do. All of the glass is in, just need to install the NOS chrome trim moldings. The rear of the car is essentially complete with exception of the aforementioned moldings. Front and rear seats have all been recovered and the rear fold down has been installed along with all of the backseat fiberglass panels. All of the underdash wiring should be finished in a few days. Right now, the goal is to have it ready to start next weekend.
After that, it's really just a matter of finishing up installing the interior (underlayment, carpet, seats and console), installing the front sheet metal (fenders, hood, valance, etc) and working out any bugs that may arise. Attached are a few pictures from last night.
For the convertible, the engine and tranny were rebuilt back in October and its running great. Once the K car is done, I plan to replace all of the front suspension/steering components for the convertible. I'm hoping to have all of the suspension stuff done by May. After that, I just plan to do some small cosmetic stuff to it and drive it and enjoy it as much as possible. I think I enjoy driving my convertible more than any new car that I've owned.
