Just got back from dropping off the wheel lip molding from the shop... it's BEAUTIFUL!!! He says it'll probably be ready for pickup on Thursday.

It's done and home!! It looks GREAT, I'm super happy with how it turned out!!

Two things need addressed yet -- my grill kit apparently shipped two left's for the end-of-grill trim (didn't know they were side specific), and a couple rubber bumpers for the trunk lid. A new right-side set of grill trim and rubber bumpers are on order.

I also need to get all the vacuum actuator stuff for the cowl induction flapper installed/configured to work as it should.

New items installed: Cowl hood, hood hinges/springs, hood pins, black grill w/stainless trim, new headlight trim, new LF fender extension, door handles, door pins/bushings, all weatherstripping, all window felts, passenger door mirror, front+rear bumpers. That's all I can think of for now.

I almost forgot just how nice it drives, too. Pure pleasure!!

Dude. That looks sick. I take back changing the wheels, they look really awesome with all the chrome on there. Enjoy it, it's been a long time coming. So awesome!
