not really a restoration, but more like "making it nicer again". Disappointed in a few things, like how long the painting took (hood and trunk lid still not done, have given ultimatum) and finish in certain spots, but otherwise ok.
Some shots below, more can be seen at:

I love the look of a 70 Jav, and your color and interior make your car top notch. Once you are done with it you will have a really great car don't give up!

Outstanding work! Looks like she's coming together well. Don't give up, I'm having my share of problems as well- all mechanical. I really like the correctly oversprayed core support! Thumbs%20Up

I know of a '69............. he's teetering on the fence about keeping or selling.
Costing him $1200/year to store it.
It needs proper body work, however. It's not a disaster, but the PO used filler instead of doing it correctly.

I finally called 3M's help line. The fellow confirmed - 3M pinchweld primer has been discontinued and they don't have so much as a single can.
He did say I could use ANY butyl pinchweld primer, even another brand.
So I ordered another brand butyl primer today. This means other than the HELP to get it in place, I can put the glass back in as soon as that arrives sine I already have the butyl tape kits.
It takes two to do it right because it must be perfect as when that glass touches the butyl, that's it, you are done - plus - I'd sure not want to drop that glass - especially onto the new paint.
Geesh, that was a nightmare enough.
Once I can talk some AMCer into helping drop the glass back in, it would technically be drivable.

Believe it or not:

Drip rail trim,
Left rear (quarter extension) trim for vinyl top - the cast piece with 2 pins,
Left quarter window belt-line trim (one that's not dented, etc.)

And I've still lookin' for each.
