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....
