You are doing an awesome job. Your welds look great and you are doing it right the first time. If I had a couple words of advice for you after you finish up that floor, it would be to scuff up the entire floor interior with 80, clean the metal, and spray epoxy. I wish so much I could go back and coat the inside of my build with SPI epoxy, but it's too late. I used Chassis saver (similar to Por15) and I can already tell it doesn't hold up like a good epoxy will.

Keep up the great work! You are doing a killer job.

My plans are to sand blast everything back off again, than go with the epoxy. I havnt done any research on primers, who makes the SPI, or is that the name? If I have read right, the epoxy is only a base and is not to be sanded, right? Something I would do diffrent is to hack all the seam sealer off the car before I blasted it. They won't "work" on it bacause it will also work on the metal around it. Next time I will know better! As you know, it is a mess to work around that nasty black stuff. I haven't figured out how to get it off without a mess, Brent

Best customer service ever. I have the CEO in my phone and he literally answers 7 days a week, most hours of the day. We've tried several brands of epoxy and nothing compares to this stuff. You can block the epoxy, black is the best for blocking. On my eleanor build you can see where the painter is blocking the black epoxy.

Can't wait to see more progress, keep up the good work!

Its been a while since I've updated my build. I have been slow working on the car too. I reached a milestone today and have the car back on its own wheels for the first time in several years. I'll try to do the best I can to catch everyone up. Brent
Removed and hung the new quarter. This is the one that had 1/2" of filler on it!



Tacked it in.


Weled in and smoothed down.

I had to cut a slit in the skin to get rid od a bubble or crown I had in the panel.

In the above pictures, you can see how bad the rust is in the top that was caused by moisture getting under the soft top. I patched in a few pieces from a doner car and it worked great.

I added mini tubs from Grave Robbers Sheet Metal. They are a super nice product and worked great. I had to cut down the frame rail to make room, when I did, I boxed the top of the rail for strenght. It all worked out great. Now the only problem is the leaf springs, I think I got a fix for them. Brent







Old compared to new






Added the floors and smoothed it out

Picked these up at the swap meet. I checked with the DMV and they can both be used.

The torque boxes I bought were WIDE...




I had to cut it down and work it over to get it to fit right, but I think it will look good when its cleaned up, sealed and painted.

There are alot of things I haven't posted on but I added new doors, which were hard to get lined up and still need to be gapped by adding metal. Added new front fenders, they still need to be fitted better. But most of all I added my new front end. I purchased a TCI kit over a year ago. A few months ago I brought home a 07 mustang 4.6 with less than 50,000 miles on it. I found a new take-out Tr 3650 5 speed and plan to use them... I had to get back with TCI and get thier modular cross member. I welded everything up this weekend and mocked up the suspension. Brent













Sitting really high, but I will work on that later

You have awesome skills, man. Hats off to you. I would have cried if I had to do all of that, and probably gotten divorced to boot.

Keep up the good work!
