Hey 38 Special,
Thanks for asking about the Corvair; I know it's not a hotrod, and some still don't consider them as "cool" restos, but I love mine. As far as the progress goes, I'm afraid I am having to pack up for the coming Winter since I don't have a garage. I am just about finished with the floorboards--just need to buy the patch panels for the front floor and weld them in. I also have the trunk just about ready for the spatter paint. My goals for next Spring are to drop out the engine to get ready for a complete overhaul (as money provides), and strip the entire body one panel at a time. If money is free, I hope to do all the patch panels (rear wheel wells, etc.) on the body. I'm having a ball!!! I plan to post more pictures soon.
Ps: I agree; sanding isn't too glamorous, just a necessary evil
