NO PICS TO ENLARGE TODAY! LOL Tongue
 
 
A wee bit of progress this weekend on the Torino, I got the power steering system filled with fluid and I also policed the area a bit in preparation for setting her down on all fours for her pending trip to the bodyshop.

Also found I'm getting about 15 minutes to the gallon idling..... LOL. I could tell when she was about to run out of gas because she started increasing in rpm's and running smoother as she leaned out prior to dying.

Aaron from Adkins Body Shop in Proctorville, OH (about 5 minutes from my house!) stopped by for a look at the Tomato today. He will be back next weekend with his primary bodyman for his input and then Aaron will give me some numbers on them doing the project.

Fingers crossed!!!!

Joe,
  With the way most paint and body shops charge for paint jobs these days, might as well cross: arms, legs and eyes as well as your fingers Smile. Too much top quality work on your part to let just "anyone" paint your Torino, I realize paint/body is just one aspect of the restoration, but it is usually the barometer that most will use to judge a ride and most impactful for the first time viewer. Hope he comes back with a good number for you. Hey, at least you have the colors already picked out Wink.

Yeah, It's a Hybrid...It burns gas and tires.

No matter how good she looks, somebody, somewhere, is tired of her sh*t.

Beauty is skin deep, ugliness goes clear to the bone.
