They have others, but this gives you an idea of what you need.

Awsome, Thanks!

The body is on the frame, finally! not an easy task this weekend, there was a lot of trimming I had to do in the trunk, the tunnel, underneath at a few places due to clearance issues etc... I had to take a lot more of the tunnel out than I had originally thought, but that's all part of it I guess. the new frame fits pretty well, tight fit, but a good fit. Does anybody else ask themselves why they start projects like this, or is just me?

Well Steve, you're not alone buddy!

Just think how good it's gonna feel when the pain stops.

Looking good now, you've about turned the corner where the demolition is over.

LOL, thanks! I'll feel much better once I get that tunnel put back together and welded up. the trunk is easy, I'm just going cut those drain holes out and angle a piece from the floor up to the shelf/hump, I think that will look clean.

It's been a while and progress has been really slow, but we are picking up the pace some, now. Been welding up the rear trunk area where I cut it out for the suspension cross member, as well as the transmission tunnel. Starting on the body work, now before we blow it apart, put the body back on the Rotisserie and tear down the frame for powder coat.

Still in paint jail, but I see the end in sight. Hopefully within the next month it'll be in color. down to the last prime and ready to wet sand before paint.



The frame is assembled and ready for the body



and the motor is here, transmission will be here this weekend, I should have them bolted to the frame by the end of the weekend.

Got the Lizard Skin sound deadener and insulation sprayed in the interior this weekend and then painted it with a semi gloss just to give it a little sheen...stuff made quite a difference. We also sprayed the bottom of the care with a semi gloss black, came out really clean looking, pic to follow later of that.
