I got a burst of ambition today. Cut out the rusted areas of the cowl and drivers door, and welded patches in. Then, seeing as it was only noon, and I had the materials, I FINALLY got the frame painted, and the firewall/cowl primed. Why'd it take me so long?
Anyway, now I can paint the firewall, and get the engine/trans in, the brake booster mounted, get busy plumbing the chassis and start the wiring. What a relief to finally make some visible progress, sort of depressing having it setting in the shop blasted but no visible work getting done.
