I made some progress this weekend on the inner wheel well. It's pretty much wrapped up, and the next project will be the trunk extension. Everything was going great until around 3 something this afternoon when a neighbor called the cops on me to complain about the noise. Apparently, there's a "no power tools" ordinance in my town- which is geared towards construction. The officer was very friendly and seemed to like my project, explained to me that a project like mine is a grey area as it's not really construction, so the complaining neighbor, who wished to remain anonymous, would have to press charges and take me to court. bleech....

I also ran out of welding gas, but, at least I was able to get through the day. Coincidentally, I'll be busy the next month so they'll get their quiet, just not for the reasons they think... Pics attached.

So I got a little time in on my car today. I was able to wrap up the back panel pieces/ installation. Next weekend I hope to get going on the wheel well assembly. June will be a non productive month for me

In other news I came across a local survivor '68 400 car. #'s matching, AC/ deluxe interior, black plates, etc. Very complete car. If I get it I'd tool around in it as a cruiser (roof is shot under that vinyl), but that would be $$/ time I'm not putting into my car. Decisions decisions...

Another week, another project update. I worked on the passenger quarter today. Got a little more welding in and started on the back area. I got curious and pulled out the bumper I have. It's slightly dented, so I'll need to repair or replace it. What's interesting is it almost fits. It's very close. so, either I can modify the car to fit the bumper or the bumper to fit the car. There are advantages to both options, so I'll need to weigh them and run with one.

I got a little time in today to start on the pass side quarter panel installation. I spent a third of the day today just aligning my door and front fender first to get them aligned better for reference. Without it, I'd be guessing where the panel is going.

Till next weekend....
