Thought I had some NOS opera trims lined up for this car but the guy turned out to be a greedy dick. :-|

Thanks Nick! That was a great day like today's trip to the Detroit dream cruise!

Thanks Dick, car is progressing

Done converting the crossflow duke brackets to fit my non crossflow engine. The switch over occurred sometime in 1979 when both the head and the block changed.

Had to file out some holes, rework a bracket, add four spacers and fabricate the back brace I was missing

Got tired of people asking about the dressup items that previous owners had installed, so I removed them all. Not pictured here are the radial tuned suspension dash plack and V6 fender tags that had to go. Found a NOS front bowtie emblem on ebay and a buddy had the steering wheel insert.

Dave's beautiful Sunbird!

Time to switch efforts back to Red Monza, car needs to be finished - way overdue.

"Dave's beautiful Sunbird!"

Great looking hatchback.

"Time to switch efforts back to Red Monza, car needs to be finished - way overdue."

Time to enjoy another terrific renovation.
