When the body was removed for patching and painting, we learned just how bad the existing frame was for this car. It would be more cost-effective to buy a ‘new’ one than it would be to attempt repairing the original. And in keeping with the slight irreverence of the project, the classic silver exterior paint would be paired with a bright neon orange frame.

The new frame arrives, but it’s just a little too “normal” for this project.
