    Car body looks decent!
    What is needed on the body and what are your plans for her?

    New quarters and trunk floor. The quarters are worse in person, needing 3-4 patches in each. Main bad spot was in the lower rear window channel. Figured it was best to just put on a whole new one.
    Originally a 318 car being replaced with a 340. 4 wheel disc brakes replacing the drums. Going to stay with the original B5 color with white R/T stripes (I know 340 wasn’t an R/T in 70) and changing the interior from original blue to black with white seats. Keeping a mostly stock appearance overall with a little of my own preferences.
