05-14-2011 07:26 PM Front Seats
Late start today. Cold. Helped wife set up garage sale.

Don came by on Tuesday and said he agreed with me that the driver's seat was in a good place.

Today the passenger seat was located, the holes drilled, and the seat was bolted in (for now, anyway).

Quit early to take down garage sale, so didn't get the wiring of the seats done. Next week.

05-10-2011 06:18 AM More Trunk Welding
When the floor brace was cut to allow for seat belt installation, it left the brace a little flimsy. I cut four end caps and welded them in. They stiffened the brace up considerably. I may still add a piece of angle to bridge the three sections together.

05-07-2011 11:04 PM Fixing Plugged Holes
Trying to finish off the trunk.

Since I had previous experience grinding off weld blobs only to see the "weld" fall out of the hole, I wanted to make sure these were fused to the base metal. Dumb bell welds. The blob on the outside and the blob on the inside hold them in place.

There were also MIG spiders and pinholes. I want a Starlight Coupe, but seeing points of light through the sheet metal wasn't what I had in mind.

Finally, there were four screws with the heads cut off filling holes. I removed them and plugged those holes with weld.

Got called away before I got to weld the covers on the openings in the brace that resulted from fitting the seat belts.

I also found a hole in the trunk floor. Looks like I am going to be cutting out a chunk and replace it. Will the welding and grinding ever end?

05-07-2011 10:56 PM Battery Box Is In
The last of the rosettes were put in. Then the rosettes were ground down. One final check of the lid and it is done.

05-05-2011 09:40 PM Welding In The Battery Box
Spent quite a bit of time removing rust from the floor where the battery box goes. Sprayed on the weld through primer and got half the rosettes welded in.
