    Newbie with a 58 Bugeye

    I have had a 58 Bugeye for a couple years and with the Shelter in Place order here in Michigan I hope to get a little more active on the restoration. I have it on a rotisserie and primed after having it water blasted and epoxy sprayed back on it. It needs at least floor pan patches but I'm leaning to replacing with a full pan. i have rebuilt everything like trans, reared,seats,dash, rack & pinion, A arms and disks. The 1098 is at the machine shop and should be back soon.
