Well the month goal is quickly slipping away. Was not able to even spend 1 hour working on the car this weekend. Good news is that I made some money to buy more parts for it!

This weekend I got the cowl panel welded in. Removed the rear deck lid, fuel tank and rear 1/4 glass. Going to remove the doors and get the car over to the media blasters next Saturday. Once its blasted inside and underneath. I will POR15 it all. Then start putting stuff on, instead of keep taking parts off.

More money and more parts are always a good thing. I still have a wheelbarrow full of MOOG front end parts for mine I have to find time to install so the wife said no more for now lol. Keep us posted on it, sounds like you're making good progress so far.

There is nothing wrong with that. Hey let's see some pics of the Harley drag racing habit.

Bellied up for a new American Auto wire classic update harness and a rear under seat pan. Hopefully will be getting the inside of the body media blasted this weekend.
I have some rot over the top center of the windshield and need to put some good metal in there. I cant find a repro window channel sheet metal replacement peice anywere. My options are looking like either finding a donor car that I can cut out the needed peice and weld it in to mine, or make it from scratch. Any other options out there? Anyone have a front roof clip?

No media blasting this weekend. Cut out the floor pan below the rear seats and have the new pan ready to drop in. At this point I have decided to pull the motor and trans and do a complete inside and out media blast.

Got the interior and underside/chassis media blasted this past weekend. There was alot of hidden rot covered with body filler that would of bubbled the paint. My projections of a month have quickly dissolved. The extent that I am going I would hope at this point to be driving by spring. It really looks good with the POR15, buthave lots of metal work ahead of me. Dont even want to to think of the moneyits going to take.
