My 66 Impala SS restoration progress
It has been a while with any posts on the progress of this car. In the fall of 2010 after replacing most of the sheet metal from the doors back, it was discovered theat the frame was rusting from the inside out! I found a complete rolling chassis in San Bernadino CA. 54 hours later I was back with a nice rust free chassis. It was out for sandblasting, checking the frame for straightness and paint.
Body off the frame and cleaning off the underside.
Old chassis and new.
With the undercoating off, the underside is stripped and cleaned of seam sealer etc.
New seam selaer is applied.
First coat of satin black paint.
Front suspension going together.
Rear suspension and diff installed. Everything that could be installed as new was with new bushings, brake lines, wheel cylinders, bearings, shocks, ball joints, tie rods etc. All the original hardware was restored as new. Just waiting for new clips for the brake lines and fuel lines. The firewall will be painted black body colour and then the body will be back on the assembled chassis.
