finished cutting off the bottom of my RH rear quarter

I have the rocker roughed in, so now I have a reference point for the quarters' repair panel

I cut a little at a time, on both the rusty stuff that is coming off, and fitting the new piece

while the area was open, I cleaned it up and added a doubler to the back side of the door jam,
(because I am going to move the body mount to that spot)

still have more to go, try again tomorrow

Very cool Matt, you are getting-r-dun.

I came home very tired tonight but still got out there and put the door glass in my drivers door. Amazing how much easier it was after reading the GM Manual! :rolleyes:

I did a little more on the Bonneville,, the tail light lenses were pretty shabby, and there are no replacements available, so I made my own

some red plastic from Tap plastics, and a piece of parabolic prisum plastic ( its the plastic covers that are in most floresent light fixtures,,it has the fishured prisums on one side to reflect the light, and a smooth side , you glue the smooth side to the back side of the red lense..
if I would have cut old the red lense off the body of the light, I wouldn't have had anything to glue the new lense to ,, so I just glued the new lense to the old one,, after cleaning it up as good as I could,,
now before I install them I will give them a little shot of the dark lense spray, to kinda match the new windows,,,
also found a new windshield, locally, and much cheaper than from OPGI 185$ delivered,, OPGI was 285 + freight from calif,, got that done also,,
its getting there slowly

Got home from work & I had promised myself I would put up three more blinds in the family room. (Keep the peace kinda thing! If my better half ain't happy, I ain't gonna be happy). Brought some cardboard home to make templates for the floor on the 33 Ply. Not enough time to start on anything else after that so I just posted some pics into my journal of the project I put on hold for this winter so I can do some of the mods on the Ply.

A Comet with a T-Bolt scoop....... What engine are you putting in it? It'll have to be a 289-302 era small block, maybe a 351W, but if you want anything bigger, you will have to relocate/modify the shock towers.

Is it a Caliente or a Cyclone?

I got my RH quarter repair panel modified and put on :thumbup:

I ended up splitting the back side at the fender bead, because of the cuts/fitting already made at door jam

it worked out OK because the bead/roll bodyline at the fender was bigger/rounder then the repair panel, so I was able to fix that at the same time

I cheated and made a doubler for the back side (kinda like putting a flange on it)

Hello CometCyclone: It's an original 4sp Cyclone I found in Tennessee about 11 years ago, body only but in pretty decent shape. It took me 9+ years before I started to work on it. I posted a little more about it in my journal. I have always liked the style & there are not too many around, so it appeals to me for something out of the ordinary.
