Essentially yes. The only thing I wish to modify on this one is to put in a tilt steering wheel. Otherwise all the original parts are there and will be refurbished or replaced as needed. The steering wheel, the instrument cluster, the console, the seats reupholstered, the tranny over hauled, the engine on has 90K on it, so I will not do anything to that at this time, new paint job, new laser stripe, new rims, tires.

that car has some good options,Rim Blow steering wheel,PB,PS,A/C
bucket seat/console floor shift, 351CJ car.
Even if Blue laser stripe was not an option for the lt. pewter I think it still would look good.Heck they have every color but blue listed for the pewter and actually think the brown laser stripe would look ugly on lt. pewter,but blue IMO would look very good.

also to answer your question in the other thread about the molding on the middle bodyline it is only factory if it has clip studs as they didn't drill 1/8th in. holes to install the clips that hold the molding on,they had metal studs that are welded to the body.My car was a wide molding car with the center moldings and had to grind the studs off flat as I am not having moldings on my car and they were all removed previously anyway but I had to grind off the studs fro the center moldings.If it has holes then someone might have installed the metal aluminum rivit on aftermarket type that had the vinyl inserts which came in various colors.Now days everything is pretty much stick on bodyside moldings for aftermarket but back in the day it was aluminum molding and you cut it to length and added the end caps and drilled holes and installed with pop rivets and then picked the color insert you wanted which hide all the rivets in the channel.That type looked more factory back in the day as they were metal moldings and now today they are all cheap stick on and the chrome covering tends to wear off after many years and sometimes the moldings unstick too.

If it has holes,weld them up with a mig welder and grind it smooth and do a little putty work to eliminate the grinding marks but laser stripe cars should not have had the center molding from the factory as it would look really stupid with a molding above the stripe.

look forward to seeing the progress on this one

My thought was that it would look good with a blue stripe as well, but that combo was not offered, but maybe I will do blue any way.
 
And, yes, I pretty much have decided to have the hole welded up.

well paint brand is personal preference to who ever paints it as to what they are comfortable using as you learn little tricks of how a certain paint system sprays when you use it alot.
I use PPG alot bot have used Standox at the bodyshop I use to work at and it's very paint too.R&M makes a good paint sytem which is a BASF product just make sure they use a good quality basecoat/clearcoat system and 5A Light Pewter metallic should be your paint code which should be on the sticker in the door jamb on driverside.
as far as quanntity you will need a gallon of base color if your doing the jambs and trunk area

Thats one of the things on my Wish List,  I have a Rim Blow but need to get a Torino pad & emblem. Did you refurbish it, or did you send it out?

What should or could I do with these rims. They are too small, two 14x51/2 and two 14x6. If I decide to sell them, does anyone here want them, whats a fair price?

shipping should be $16/wheel with USPS, that what the guy that wants mine told me, he sells wheel on ebay on a regular basis

Quarter panel seems off a bit, but that might be from the pic
