Brief update... the Tomato has been moved into it's work area, a little preliminary sanding done and it is in the on deck circle. A couple collision jobs and I think there was one last build being wrapped up when I stopped in week before last. I need to stop in this coming week to finalize a couple things on how I want the painting done and to see where we are now in the project queue. Fingers crossed.....

Well popped in at Moore's Body Shop on my way home from work Wednesday and was greeted with a surprise.... work has begun on the Tomato!! Seems the GTO that is in line ahead of her has had some frame damage and is off at the frame shop being repaired and looks like it's gonna take a while it get it straightened out, so they started doing some work on the Torino.

They pulled the doors and front sheetmetal to begin working the body and Bill noticed something didn't look right about the driver's side rear quarter. After comparing it to the passenger side, he found the quarter was bowed in about an inch and a quarter above the rear wheel opening!! Seems the replacement of the quarter panel had been botched at some point in the past, so his first order of business was to split the panel open and work the panel out to where it was supposed to be and closed it back up and finessed it.














So work is underway and it looks like I MOVED IT TO THE RIGHT SHOP and I'm eager to watch her progress back to perfection!!!!

Stopped in the shop this past week to drop off the trim that Bill wanted to have for the roof rail, quarter window and body side molding. Found it all but the quarter window trim, so I still need to dig that out of my new stuff if I can't find the old ones I took off.

On a positive note, they are still working on the Torino body and it's really taking shape. Bill wanted the trim to confirm it is all going to fit up nicely as it should. Here are a few pictures of the work being done....

















and he even got the pass thru plate welded in.



She's coming along slowly, but at least it's getting done!!
