05-11-2008 05:57 PM Rumble Lid
Over the winter I was also able to save the rumble lid. Still have a lot of work to go. It fits the opening and no more dents or rust.

Trying to use trailer fenders instead of molding on fiberglass. Started this today.

05-11-2008 06:14 AM Spring is here
It was a long winter but for the most part it wasn't too bad. The tent I built inside the shop was easy to heat and on the coldest days it was a comfortable range of 50-60 degrees. It also helped a lot to keep dust down in the rest of the shop.

I am amazed at how much work I still have to do but the car is in much better shape than is was at this time last year. All the rust and rot is gone and I have the entire inside of the body coated with KBS Rust seal and Epoxy primer. I also sealed down the underside of the floor.

Here's a pic of the bottom taken yesterday. I'll be putting it back on the frame today to fit, shim and align things a bit more. This will include hanging the doors again, fab work for the bear claw latches and alignment and latch work for the rumble lid.

03-09-2008 06:36 PM Plating the floor
Here are a couple of shots of the plating work I'm doing around the body mount areas. This took care of some engineered holes plus rust pinholes and hopefully it will add more strength. I also reinforced the lower body vertical flange front to back on both sides.
