This entire project was done within 6 months, inside of my garage on evenings and weekends, and for the most part by myself with my own two hands. this incudes all the paint and interior work.
this car does have flaws, its not perfect, but its a frut of my effort and it shows what one man can do by himself if he sets his mind to it
