66 Galaxie Build

Follow along here as the ’66 Galaxie 500 is built after dragging it home in late 2015. Some of the early pages assumed we were going to simply fix up a few things and get it running, but over time the project went deeper and we are cleaning things up, prepping them and properly finishing them. Takes longer but better build in the long run.
