Default 767 SkyKing Project #363

Ok Guys and Gals! I decided to start a new PT project (Dream Cruiser 2 #363) which was located in a lonely backyard! The car has been sitting for 2 years (after an overheat). While unloading off a trailer, the previous owner ripped the front bumper off. Paint looks good underneath the dirt and bird droppings. I will start the cleanup and possibly the need for "Candyman" in the area for some special work if the "Mrs" allows it! Actually, there is some good stuff on it already. The reason I bought it was that is has a "GETRAG"!! I will keep updating the project but I think this is going to be a fun one. (What do you think Danny? Whats your Dreams number?)
1. dropped 2 inches
2. modified exhaust (dual)
3. modified intake

I like, I'll be subscribing to this one. #0357 Nice rescue. This has been on eBay for quite awhile. Might do so negotiating on this. 2001 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser Used Grille Clean Tangerine Paint to Match | eBay In case your tabs are torn off.
I can't wait for you to get started. I got you rated already lol.

Man, It's amazing that you found a DREAM, mtx, stage 1, duals and already dropped. UNBELIEVABLE!!!

Congrats and please keep us in on the build from here.

Good news after day 1...
After a good bath and wheel cleaning, no flaking was observed on the paint. It will need Some PDR work, claybar and color sanding, and lots of cleaning for this "Neurotic" PT owner!

This is what the wheels looked liked before the "process"



Using some good "Detail shop" stuff to remove the "baked on" brake garbage!



Ahhh yes, the finished wheel



Day 1 "pre clean" Now it can go into the garage!



Front bumper to the repair shop tomorrow, then paint
