I’ve decided. I’m going to try and get the Queen ready for Radwood, and that means getting the roof holes welded shut, replacing the mismatched fender and header panel, and having the whole car repainted/refreshed.

There’s also the paint work for the push bars, chrome trim, and then cleaning her up. I did a little research. Getting a new fender direct from Ford will be around $375. Not too bad. I already have a spare header panel.

Roof work: $1200

Trunk lid work: $800

Repaint/refresh: $???

What do you think? Should I go for it?
