The top is custom.  He made new stainless trim pieces for the shorter top.

 Was the vinyl done that way as a factory option?

  The frame was blasted and the welds were smoothed.  Then coated with POR-15.
From what I remember, my dad used copper tubing to form the flares and then brazed/tacked a wire frame to the tubing and the car.  Then laid fiberglass cloth over and blended.  i was about 8-10 years old when we did this so I will get clarification from him the next time I call him.
  I think we will go with a dark blue metallic.  If the top is still in good shape when we paint it, I will keep it white. If not, then I think black might look better.  I would like to bring the car out of the 80's with some fresh updates.

Nice work on the frame, looks great.  I have never seen body flares like that, was that a custom kit?  What colour are you planning?

He still has the original mags, as well as the space saver spare. With the flares, it really needs a set of 17s or 18s to fill out the wheel wells.  Once its back on the road I will do that and update the interior.
