Hi there.my 60 is in pices all around the yard.Iv sandblasted it,and coated it with a ruberized coating that seals the metal so it will never rust. Most of the body work is done. I was going to do a 3D mural on it,a new idea of mine,but now that I have the 48 I dont know what Ill do. Ill probly just finish fixing the frame and put the cab and front fenders back on and sell it to use the money for the 48. Some peaple say since I used fiberglass in it,it isnot a real restoration job,but what does there restored cars have in them,body filler,not lead fill,acrilic enamel or base clear paint,or any of those other things that were not around when there cars were built.But I like to argue with them,they get so mad when I say there restored car is not original.But Iv had to menny years of spending countles hours building cars with metal, No I dont have a picture of it. Larry
