It still needs bumpers, a full interior and a bunch of others small things, but today Skynyrd drove under its own power again since about 1984.
What a badass car. Great job Lennard :good:

Well, due to Chris being very busy with customer cars and me being very busy with working... my car isn't finished in 2020 like I had planned.
I picked it up, parked it in my garage and I'll work on it whenever I have time.

Sure, but it's my hobby.... not my job. :)
I bought a house on a soccer field size property a year ago and I'm planting trees in my yard, pouring concrete sidewalks, etc. next to my full time job and working on my cars.

The bumpers are painted silver. They are fiberglass, and not an exact copy of the real thing.
I might just put new steel bumpers on it when it's starting to bother me.

Well... I wasn't sure about that.
So I did use the aluminum bumper brackets, just in case. :)

No, that might make them to weak to carry the weight of the steel bumpers. ;)
