Awesome! Looking very forward to your project. It makes me happy to know that they are helping people.
Yes, Eleanor in mine, and Sally will be ours, hehe. It's Aaron's turn to call all the shots on this one. Although I've already said that it will be original, I'd love to paint it black with saddle interior. I got a big N-O on that suggestion. So it looks like it will be Lime Gold with the Ivy Gold interior. Which I know a lot of people don't like that color but I actually really like it. So that's what she'll be.
Since it was so nice out yesterday we decided to head over to the shop and whipe the cobwebs off of her. We knew the floor was completely bad but we weren't sure what else we'd find. Fortunately, the owner repaired the floor with galvanized sheetmetal and used a rivet gun and glue to attach it over the old rusty floor. No cutting involved!
Ehhhh...The whole rear section of the passenger front frame rail will need replaced as well as the torque box.
Surprisingly the upper part of the seat riser isn't all that bad but it all will eventually be replaced.
The car is covered in what looks to be 2k primer.
I ran a heavy magnet over the panels where bondo is normally found underneath. So far so good.
I'm very excited about the shape that the fenders are in. I haven't conculded about the doors yet until they're stripped.
