Good effort in the time, you're probably better off without a garage, mines been off the road for nearly 10 years now. I would have bought a better nick one by now if I didn't have a garage. But I just love getting rust in my eyes.

Don't forget to treat it to a internal waxing.

I, I just took a ride
in a silver machine
and I'm still feeling mean

Do you want to ride
see yourself going by
The other side of the sky
I got a silver machine

It flies sideways through time
It's an electric line
To your Zodiac sign

I got silver machine (3x)
8mile silver machine

It flies out of a dream
It's anti-septically clean
You're gonna know where I've been
In my silver machine

No I meant an internal cavity wax like waxol, otherwise it will just rust from the inside out.

My project still doesn't look like much, will be better after spraying. Getting close now. Will be looking hands for rebuild and 940 engine transfer after that. But your welcome anytime.
