Bella’s got her gown & now she’s ready to learn how to dance.


She was completely stripped, nearly all sheet metal & the frame rails on front & rear were replaced. She was then epoxied, primed & blocked repeatedly.  All parts  were “jambed” & clear coated, her engine bay was painted, the underside and floor pans were sprayed with UPOL Raptor, she was assembled & aligned (doors, fenders, hood, decklid, etc.) & she then got sprayed with plenty of base coat and several layers of clearcoat. Color sanded thru 2000 grit & polished. A new front suspension has been added and the 9″ rear-end re-built, painted & hung with new leaf springs. New brake lines, hoses, wheel cylinders, etc. have been installed.


Lots of parts (Bella’s jewelry) have been detailed & incredibly, most of the interior panels, vents, aluminum trim pieces, etc., were in excellent shape.   Simple cleaning, detailing & painting have put them in “new” condition, and, being original pieces, they will fit! 


Power steering is next.  I sure wish Borgeson had a system for big blocks, as it eliminates a lot of clutter & hoses, is an easy install & provides good handling.
