More on my 70

Here are some more pics. I recovered the front seat and replaced the carpets, the rest of the interior is perfect. I also cleaned up the trunk.
Now it's time to put some miles on it!

Wow! That's super clean. Nice work on a great looking ride.

Don't listen to me, what do I know? I've only been doing this for 30 years.

Wow, interior looks really nice. I wish I could find original steering wheel for my green interior Impala.

So start the travel log and put her on the road. Mine is now blasted with rain and wind as I sit in my office typing this reply :-) Nasty weather we have here in NJ today.

Same down here in Philly, Alex. It's like MAY, today. I backed the '63 out of the garage this morning around 6AM, to wash the bondo-dust off of her, and then put it back in to drip-dry.

Beautiful '70, Mick! Best of luck with it. What color do they call that interior ??

Mitch.

Thanks, it's light saddle. Kind of a hard color to find repop for.
