little more done today.
SMC metal filler on the roof to quarter gap after welding
ruffed in with 36 grit then some 80.
welded the filler panel to the quarter...(frowned upon by the purists)
And continued my quest for the shaved drip rail look.

Looking good, better get a move on before it's too hot a humid to safely paint.

Paint this year was probably a pipe dream.
If i get the body in epoxy prime before may itl be a miracle.
I still need to do the doors...fenders...remove engine trans and frame.
and on and on.

It took me a year longer then I thought it would to get mine done. Don't rush it, you will be glad you didn't.

Mine has become the proverbial "seven year itch." I hope it is everything I expect when finished. I'll be pushing it into the work shop in a few weeks to prep it for a complete repaint. I was going to fix a few spots, but started to realize it would just be better/easier if I redo the entire car. Lots of bumps and scrapes from being shuffled around over the past few years.

It was 7 years before I got to drive mine again, so I know the feeling.

Default Quick update

Still going at it.
Most of the major dents are gone.
The roof and right quarter are striped and in epoxy.
The custom drips got a 1/8 metal rod welded on the edge to give em a nice feel
The hood is in the parts showroom (my front living room) and the doors and fenders are off...Found a local media blast place that will take em down to bare metal.
The lower cowel is rust free on the outside but inside i dont know yet.
Anyway a few more pics
