desert tin rebuild.

I picked up some rusty body parts in the nevada desert. Make unknown. I put a sheet of pylwood on a large pallet then up on a roll around table. I drew a grid pattern then lined up the cowl , quarter panels etc on the grid, used drywall screws to hold them. then started bending sq and Rect steel to build a sub structure. Old chevies usually have most of the wood sub structure gone or useless. Someone might have a good car you can measure. otherwise move the panels till they look and fit right.
