1978 AMX Project begins!!!! *picture heavy*
« on: March 21, 2012, 01:56:10 PM »
I posted a while back about my 78 AMX project, and now I"m finally underway!! It is an original v8 car with levis interior and black car with the gold stripes.  I'm going full stock restoration!  Here are the pics of the before and where its at now.  Tell me what you guys all think!!  The other pic is the parts car that is nearly identical just with much more rot. I hope to have it finished this summer!!!!  I found over ten years nearly all NOS parts or very good parts and I can't believe i'm actually going to have this car done soon!















Its actually coming along well!!!

That's going to be an amazing finished project. I'm envious you found not just one but two. I've got dibbs on the dash and front end parts you don't use, that's exactly what I've been searching for. I'll be following your progess, you seem to be doing a great job. Eggs!

Captspillane: I'll make you a heck of a deal on the other car when this one is finished!  Luckily I dont hardly any of the interior parts, so hopefully I can help you out when the time comes!
