Well, moving finally forced me to dismantle the car down to just the frame. It was a lot less work than I thought. I don't know what took me so long. The frame and body are now in my friends pasture waiting for space in my garage.
Well, after about one year I finally was able to get the body off the frame! Now the real fun can begin. I will start by measuring the existing critical dimensions, then proceed to rip the old running gear out. It is so nice to actually have some progress on this old beast!
