Default 72 Driver NorthCarolina UNDER CONSTRUCTION

I was to quick to tear down the car and didnt get any photos before the tear down to replace the rotted cowl panel. Not sure if this is the proper forum to post under construction photos. Or is this section for completed cars? Sorry if I f'ed up.
Here is a link to all the photos so far. http://s165.photobucket.com/albums/u...72%20Chevelle/

Dang, you guys are sounding like a buddy of mine that stopped bye today and asked "when will it be done, a year or so?" I am thinking a month at best. Waiting for the media blaster to set up a date to blast the interior. Firewall(inside), roof and floors. I got the cowl panel set in place today. Will order the rear floor pan tomorrow. Need to buy a gallon of POR15. Has anyone used POR15? Here is a couple pictures of todays progress.

I did my last 2 big Chevelle projects like you are doing but doing them like that took a lot of time and money, I am happy with the way both turned out. On my current project we were in a stand still but we are getting ready to ramp up on it again.

POR 15 is great stuff but messy. If you can get it done in a month that is awesome.

I've used POR15 on the frame area when the engine was out. The underside was done by a previous owner, probably more than 20 years ago now. It still looks good, sure it could use a little cleaning but no rust or flaking.

Good luck with the project. A month or so? That would take me years, if I could even do it.

A month may be tight. Its one of those things that you often have to ask how far do I want to go? There are a lot of sub assemblys that need to be gone through while I have it apart. Once the dash is back in and the inside is completly media blasted and painted. I can get it at least drivable. Then I can piddle as I drive it.
I bought the car with intentions of driving it daily. Or when I didnt feel like riding my motorcycle to work because it it raining!

I like it when people buy their cars to drive them. It is nice to look at a show car, but even nicer when you see an older car driving down the street.

Looks like lots of work to get it done in a month. But can be done. Keep us posted on your progress.

Yes it is lots of work. And I still have to make money to sink in to the car as well as support my Harley drag racing habit. I have to keep reminding myself this is going to be a driver and not a museum quality representation of a factory origanal.
