Thanks man, my secret is wheel acid, it makes damn near anything look new again if used right!

Looks great! Looks like those spark plugs are still easy to change with those headers too.

Thanks man, already plan on the Trans failing ;) it was free though and is semi built so will work for now lol, plus I already had a 3600 billet pro yank for it too. Just figured out the interior was regal a few weeks ago when I was trying to find repo dash parts lol, I kind of like it though... Plan on painting car the same pastel blue and having interior redone exactly like it is now.
