Well I think it's a no brainer with the "how I want it to" part. I love seeing how people put their own ideas into a classic car, it makes it their own and not just another restored car.

Thanks a lot. Been catching a little flack about the copper paint job on that thing but I'm matching it to the car so the whole package should be a real nice outcome

Who cares what others say. I personally think a restoration should be done in the eyes of the creator

You got to go with what you want rather than stock. Your whole experience will be a whole lot better, especially the pay off

Do u plan on keeping it? If so, u do what u want. But if ur gonna sell it someday, most people who get 6cyl also like autos.
The most important thing is that in the end YOU are happy with it!
