thks guys, need to get this one done first!
another 3 hours......from this point in it will be working on about a 2' x 2' section at a time. this is really good because once its in primer/surface coat you can see where you need spend your time and you can be very focused. so I will do body work for about 30 mins each night. not enough to get bored but just enough time to move the project forward.

I believe I am down to the last several welding jobs
my how the small holes always seem to get bigger
I had to use a tab to hold the top piece, just a small welded tab
tomorrow nights work the lower holes

got some parts for the doors today. I can see rebuilding these will be a challenge. but that will be in a while...
lets take care of 4 holes....use the copper wrapped sheet steel as a backing so you don't get any burn through

almost back in business.....
we start by fixing a design flaw in my moveable saw horses and fix the rear part of the axle so it doesn't move down and make the wheels cant
lets fit the drivers side shut face panel
and I find out the bracket that the latch attaches too has been drilled out
weld up the holes
drill and tap

well I understand that my garage comes back to me tomorrow and the coupe comes off the high storage frame and back on to the moveable saw horses.
so lets wrap up the dash board, I sanded the back side and self etch primed it and then both sides got primed in black primer. after sanding the back side I don't think the black was anything other then a primer

worked on the dash some more to fix the damage from a radio install and to weld the top tab back on. the coupes dash get wrapped in vinyl covering ,so it can be less then a paint quality finish
voilla just add some welding magic
