I vote with Skip on this one.

I did some more sandblasting on the hood, applied some body filler, and did more panel beating around the light pedestals.

It's been so rainy here that I can't use my big pile of outside sand, so I went to town and bought some bags of sandblasting sand. So here's the hood two thirds done and some body filling done.

We are all forgetting to factor in that even a 360 probably has 200 horse-power, so you will have a hundred extra horses to play with.
