    Cool 1 yr milestone on #8955 289 build

    Sept 12th 16 is when the diff went in the chassis to begin this build, having just picking it up from FF on the 10th Sept. Mechanicals are done. As of last night, initial fill and block sanding is finished on body, and final tweaks to front door gap fits will be finished tonight. Next up, remove body, trim lower edges, and apply first heavy primer coat.
    Hope to finish slick sand blocking/final prime before snow flies, and leave sit before final prep for paint in spring. Lots of details to take care of in between, windshield fitment and spacing, seat mounting etc. And clean the dust out of everything in the car and garage!
    I just keep plodding along!
