John long Thanks again guys. It just tickles the pee dabbledy doo out of me that you guys are interested in it. (my grandmother's expression)

I cleaned up the loose parts with an 80 grit DA and 50 grit 3 inch Rolocs, and primed the loose pieces today. As I mentioned earlier, I need to remove the windows and stainless off the body and strip it. I hate to see the bare metal start to loose its shine. Time to get some Epoxy on it.

It is good to have some protection on these parts.

John

That being said, the difference between "anyone being able to do it" and "master" IS a very real. The difference is how many steps you can skip and rock and roll through without thinking. John, I believe you have to slow down to show us what you are doing, YOU my friend are a "master". You may not call yourself that as humble as you are, but I can say it!

I do appreciate the kind words from all!

John long It has been too long since I posted any progress pictures. I am sorry for that but it has just really been hectic for a while and the truth is progress has been limited.

I did pull both of the engines and transmissions as well as the rear end and sold them to a gentleman who is restoring a '51 convertible. Hopefully he gets good use out of them.

Today was the first time in close to two weeks that I actually did much as far as construction goes on the car. The back side of the cross support is fabricated and welded to the front half. The flanges accross the drive shaft tunnel are welded and the end brackets are fitted.

I would like to get this area mocked up and then strip it from the B pillars back and get it into Epoxy. The bare metal is loosing it shine and it is time to get some protection on it. Also, Once all this is welded in there is going to be a lot of places I will not be able to reach to prime.

John



I fabricated the back side of the brace, flanged it and welded the assemblies together.
