    The last opitma I bought on amazon was a better price then anything local. I was worried about it being shipped though.

    They packed it quite well, bought from Sask Battery In Saskatchewan, was here in a couple clicks and a couple days , I was looking on Amazon when I saw their ad pop up, so clicked on it.
    Bought it in CDN dollars shipped from Canada , sometimes ordering parts here is very expensive from the US and right now our dollar sucks . Click image for larger version.

    Have not posted any progress lately ... because progress is slow... I finished cutting (wet sanding) the car and have spent the last couple weeks buffing, I only have an hour to 2 hours a day to work on it, so it is moving at a snails pace. I hope to have the final buffing/polishing done this weekend, so the paint work will be DONE. It is booked in to have the Roadrunner stripe kit applied on Aug. 02...pics will follow. I got all my tire mess sorted out, decided to keep the 10 inch wheels...turned out one was a GM bolt pattern! that took a couple weeks to sort out...then I ordered Mickey Thompsons for it and one of them was cosmetically flawed and had to be sent back , that took a couple weeks too.... I also decided to plop in the 318 that is on the floor next to the car (temporarily while I build the 360) but had to gather parts to install the 833 manual.... I picked up a 318 flywheel & had it turned, ordered offset dowels from RobbMc Performance, bought the problem solver pilot bearing and bought a dial indicator all to mount the bell housing on the 318. I hope to drive the car by September, but we will see lol...

    Seeing your car makes me happy I decided to paint mine Sassy Grass too. Mine will have a modified two tone though.

    Congrats. Very nice

    Thanks guys! It was a HUGE deal for me to see this thing outside in the sunlight. The paint job is not perfect, but as close to perfect as I could get it with what I was working with and where I was working. I also have the satisfaction of knowing I did it myself. It looks good and for an amateur job I got close to professional results! I do wish the color was a little darker, still seems a bit light for Sassy Grass/Go Green to me, but I am happy with the results .I did work in an auto body shop like 25-30 years ago, but it wasn't that long I did it and I was basically a prep guy/helper... I was never a body man or an automotive painter by any means.
