One of my friends gave me some Rallie centers that he had had for years. I ran them through the dishwasher and polished them up. They look really good from 5-6 feet. It will be good to have something to put on the wheels while I am working on the chassis. :

Yupper. She caught me.

The hood on my '62 Impala has some similar rust issues, but I don't think it's that bad...
Its just a car in my stall, thats all. They brought me a pickup truck load of new metal but no hood or decklid. For a '62 new hood is a no brainer. This is a '60.

Too Many Projects I lifted the Impala this morning to clean up the underside for paint.
This seam was too wide for just sealer and tapping on it didn't bend it in, it just bounced, so out came the clamps and welder and I convinced it to stay together..







Toe boards are a mess from all the pieces I cut/made to fill in where no part is available.





A little magic with the body hammer, cut-off wheel and grinder made them presentable. The boss man will seam seal them heavily to hide all the seams.





Then I hit the entire pan seams with the grinder to clean them up and sprayed rust-oleum primer so the boss can seam seal tomorrow.







As far as I'm concerned, I'm done with the underside and moved to the bucket seat mounts. I gave them a quick bath with brake cleaner to remove residue and then a quick trip thru the blast cabinet, followed with weld thru primer.



After carefully measuring and test fitting the seats, I welded them on.



So ends the saga of the floor replacement and next week, I get back to assembling the car to running, as I "thought" I was doing 8 weeks ago...

tech69 got a prius buttoned up and didn't notice til I was ready to pour in some coolant that the darn reservoir was cracked from the accident. Would have been no problem with most other cars but this is a can of sardines and the darn thing is moulded into the shroud, which makes it more of a hassle. All done and my knuckles can rest now.

This came in the mail today. My cheap HF impact went out after greasing it cause the darn detent pushed all the way in and jambed the motor. NO seal/ no work. So I researched and got this Milwaukee. They really are the best power tools nowadays. Love their cordless tools. This isn't their fuel one which boasts 750 ft lbs but at 450 and the price this was a steal.

Too Many Projects I, however, have PROOF I worked today...

I finished the toe board fab and install on Monday.





Then I spent 3 HOURS grinding down the entire floor replacement job...



I had to make a repair flange for the shifter hump.











Then I spent 3 hours removing the remnants of the old floor from the bucket seat mounts, cleaning and prepping them for install. 1 stud was broke, so I ground off the head that is spot welded, installed a bolt and tacked it on.







They are ready, except to run them thru the blast cabinet before paint and welding.
